    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,

    Hello Eric,

    I am considering a new prop for my 01 X-Star (330LTR). Hoping you can make a recommendation. I run stock KGB ballast and primarily hydrofoil throw in a little wake surfing here and there. I don't recall what prop I am running now, but I am pretty sure it is what came stock from MC.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Eric,
    I have a 94 maristar 225vrs and need a new prop. I don't really know what im looking for all I know is I want to wakeboard and surf. I just bought the boat and Im guessing its a stock prop but needs to be replaced.

    Hi Eric, have a 2005 x-10 with MCX 5.7. with stock ballast and prop. Getting ready to upgrade ballast to the following:

    750 lbs in each rear locker

    650 Lbs integrated sack in the bow

    Factory ski locker sack 275lbs?

    At sea level in Florida.

    With usually only two people in the boat what is the best prop option?

    Wakemakers recommends Acme1285, but I would like to hear your opinion.

    We wakeboard and ,if I can get a big enough wake, would like to surf.

    Don't care about top speed, mainly looking for easy take off, handling when loaded down and fuel economy...

    Thanks... :-)

    Hi Eric, I have a 2013 XStar with the 7.4L ilmor. I just recently bought it used and it currently has an OJ 4 blade 14.75 x 17.5 prop. However, I live in Denver and our lake is at almost 6000 feet elevation.(Definitely, High Altitude) We only surf, anwill always have the boat heavily weighted with people, ballast and the Plug N Play ballast system. What prop do you suggest for our XStar based upon the info I provided?

    We have a new to us 2007 MasterCraft Maristar 230 VRS. MCX 350hp motor. No tower, or ballast, yet Should have a tower next year. Ballast-TBD. We slalom, and now that we have our first V-Drive, we are trying wakeboarding and wake surfing. The prop is the stock OJ 14.25 X 14.5. Looks like it has been repaired a time or two. Do you have a recommendation/price for a replacement? The original can then be our spare. Thanks much,

    P.S. Wakemakers has a OJ 475 14.25 X 14.5. $549, after military discount, $500. Is this the best prop, or is that a newer model? Thnxs

    Hi Eric,

    I have an 08 x-35 and it is leaking (stream not drip) through the dripless seal. Is there any adjustment possible or is it just a replacement seal I need to get?

    Hello Eric, Got a 1986 Prostar 351PCM 1:1 trans top rpm 4300 at sea level with the stock 13x13 3 blade. Looking for a new prop. I am currently happy with the performance that this prop gives me. My main concern is not to lose any top speed on what I have right now.. What would you suggest?

    Thanks, Brian

    Hello Eric, Need help please. I just purchased a 2001 MC Prostar 190 with a damaged prop and wish to buy a new one. Haven't run the boat except for brief test drive due to the vibration, so I don't have RPM info. Boat has power slot 1.5:1, 1-1/8" keyed shaft, MTR 330 HP engine. Current prop is not the original, it's an 13.7 x 17V HC OJ. I'm just getting back into slalom at age 51, and I'm out of shape so it will be "light" slalom. Really lost after researching this topic and the local pro is busy with Memorial Day customers. Thanks for your help. Bruce
