my 05 xstar with mcx came stock with the 13.7 x 17.5. i was not pleaed and eric told me to put the 14.25 x 14.0 on the boat. well, that ended any dissatisfaction i have had with that boat. it completely changed it into a stump puller. i have since traded for an 08 xstar with L18 and it came stock with the 13.7 x 17.5 also. well, again i was dissatisfied so i called eric at oj again and he put me onto the 14.75 x 15.5 and again i am pleased beyond words. i remember eric telling me that the 14.25 x 14 was geared too low for the high-torque L18. i remember him telling me a couple of years ago that the 14.25 x 14.0 is still the preferred prop for heavilly ballasted xstars with mcx. good luck and let us know what eric at oj comes back with for you.
