Acme 1285 vs 1479 -- any experience?

I'm currently running an Acme 1285 on my 05 X2. (Was installed by the PO.) We board and surf but also slalom. I contacted Acme for suggestions on a prop that might lower my RPM's when skiing but still provide low end grunt. They suggested that the 1479 would lower my RPM by a couple hundred. Same diameter and pitch as the 1285 but .150 vs .105 cup. Anyone have experience with the 1479 prop? I'm not sure if it's worth the $$ just for a small change. I do know I could sell my 1285 in a heartbeat.
