X25 Prop info?

Hey guys, tried going through all the threads, but figured this was easier... sorry if it has been discussed to death.

So I got all cattywampus sideways on the trailer when a 30 mph windstorm blew in, ended up dinging up the prop real nice So, I had planned on re-propping eventually anyway, just came sooner than expected.

Looking for suggestions on what prop to go with, so far I am leaning toward the acme 1285. Any input would be great, and suggestions on the best company to get them through would be awesome.

My setup for now:
2011 x25
Ilmore 5.7
Stock ballast + 450's daisy chained in on each side of engine (so 900 extra)
Mostly wakeboard and surf (when I figure out how to dial that in), occasional ski

Thanks in advance!
SC

Oh, forgot to mention.... not worried about the high altitude issue, normal lake elevation in summer 745 ft.

Unsure. I just called ACME and they told me that was the best prop.

I'm just shy of 2k of ballast, but had 6 people in the boat the other day (couple of them big fellas) and I was very impressed/happy with it.

I run 2500-2900 plus people and use the OJ 5 Blade. It has great results and best of all runs a lower rpm than other props.

What kind of average gph do you see with the 25 and the 5.7?
