The 15x12 is an awesome prop, I have yet to meet anyone with one who isn't happy. You loose a little speed off the top end, but that's the only negative I have found. It's fun to keep loading the boat up and not having to worry about there being too much weight. We had over 4k in my X-30 this summer with 8+ people (and the X-30 weighs 4700lbs dry) so it was over 10k total weight and we got on plane no problem. Wake was bananas with that much weight too.

some good information about the 15x12 in that thread actually
willyt, did you end up buying the ACME 15X12? I'd be curious to see how you like it once you're back on the water. I have some cavitation on right turns when fully loaded, plus I'm all for a better holeshot if possible too.

I have the Acme 2271 15" x 15.75 4blade prop with a 105 cup.

Performance, RPM's and GPH are better than the previous 14.5 x14.75 OJ prop

I could get on plane with 700's in back locker, 400 in walkway and 400 on top of bow seats. Factory front ballast filled and 7 people in the boat.

Once ECU adapted it got up no problem.

Comparison to the OEM OJ prop

Kinda still on topic with this thread....any recommendations for a prop for an older Xstar? 2002 with the LTR? I am not cool enough to own a newer one, but want to try at least
Thanks

I have read a lot of research over the last few months about the Acme 1285 being a good prop choice for my year/model boat. Just curious if anyone else has used this prop for a Star/X2/X1.....205v hull, or another prop recommendation

Oj 522 also seems to be a popular choice for the 205V
