I just wanted to say thanks to Jim @ BAWS. :toast: He has been extremely helpful on choosing a prop for my '03 X2. Switching from the old school stock OJ 14x18 to a CNC'd Acme 1285 14.5x14.25 made a world of a difference. I lost about 2 mph top end. I'm running 45mph @ 5300 rpm (MCX motor) with the new prop.

The yank is unreal when the boat is loaded down. Its much easier on the wakeboarder/skiier when getting up. Up and on a plane in no time! :steering: The wake is also much more crisp, the other prop seemed to produce quite a bit of prop wash.

I'd highly recommend the Acme 1285 if anyone is thinking about it...

Thanks Jim!

Thanks Dave,

ACME props are new here at Bay Area WaterSports. Bill is very
knowledgable in his prop selection. We have probably moved about
10 so far with no complaints

Thanks again

Given the uproar a few moons back about said brand of prop, I'm surprised you guys are able to carry them. But my knowledge of all the interplay that goes on being a dealer is admittedly extremely limited. Good props for sure!
