    Hello, I hear you are the expert in the matter, and I would greately appreciate any help you can give me. I have an X Star 2004 with an MCX 350 5.7 liter, and I am looking for a new prop, i hear the new OZ-X5 is good but im not sure it would fit. Please let me know what you would recomend for someone who mostly wakeboards, or wakesurf, and is loading up lots of weight. Obviously cheaper is would be good. so any advice is much appreciated.

    I just purchased a 1995 Prostar 205 with a 350 CI Chevy engine (275 HP) and Powerslot transmission.

    What OJ prop should I have on there? I need to get a spare and information out there is kind of confusing. It Currently has a 14x18 3 blade prop 1 and 1/8 inch shaft. I want a prop that will maximize slalom skiing performance (i.e. small wake)

    Thanks for your input.

    Kind Regards,

    Hi eric

    I do have xstar 2005 , with MCX 350 , bought it recently and came with OJ470, when I loaded with 750 on rear compartments , plus KGB and 400 on front , it takes too long to get to plane , if normally is the driver , my son 75kg and person wakeboard is ok , as soon someone else is in the boat in order to get to " plane" he has to go to the bow . Am not so interested on top speed , mainly we use the boat for wakeboard and wake surf .

    I am looking to upgrade the stock prop on my 2015 mastercraft x23 with 6.2. It seems like it turns really high RPM's at surf speed (3,900-4,000 @ 11mph) and when I try to surf at a little faster speed, 11.5, it seems to struggle to get there. I have heard mixed things about changing props on the x23, so I am wondering if you guys have any experience with this boat. Mainly use it for surfing and cruising around the lake, just stock ballast. Let me know if you would like anymore info and what prop you would reccomend. Thanks.

    Hi, Eric. I have a 99 205 DD with ltr 350 and 1:1 (no slot), and need a new prop. Will use the boat for everything-kids knee board and tube, wife slaloms, kids learning to wakeboard, and just cruising. Looking for a good all around prop that will hopefully perform better than the original one. Seems a lot of people on the forum suggest a acme 541, I believe. What OJ prop do you suggest? I'm not a prop expert, and don't care if it's three or four blade. Thanks, Michael

    Good morning Eric. I have a 2010 x2 with the MCX 350 engine in it. I believe it is the stock prop that i mangled yesterday afternoon while loading the boat. I would like to repair the prop but order a new one so I have a backup. The boat is used for wake boarding, surfing and slalom so I need a recommendation for a good all around prop. The boat has stock ballast and is usually run with 4-5 people in the boat.

    Thanks in advance for any guidance as I have only had the boat for 1.5 seasons and this will be the first prop change. Do I need any special tools (ie. the c-clamp I saw on wakemasters)?

    Thanks, Greg

    Hello Eric- New to the board and new to my 2015 X46. I live in KS and ordered it with the 6.2 and standard prop. OJ 14.75 x 17 V3. Last week I dinged the prop on a small limb and had it repaired. We boat at Table Rock in Missouri. I'm happy overall with the prop, but feel with loaded factory ballast, 6 larger adults, and some kids, that it could use a different prop under those conditions. The boat currently tops out at about 43-45mph and 5400 rpm with a couple of adults and 2 kids. We are new to this type of boat and all of capability it has. I think we will mostly surf, wakeboard, and some tube pulling for the kids. Any advice on a prop would be helpful.

    Thanks in advance,
