New prop review 230VRS/X30

I've got a 2003 230VRS with the MCX that came with a 14x18 stainless four blade OJ.
I had two issues with the stock prop.
1) WOT I was turning about 5300 RPM (I didn't like that)
2) With full ballast (2000lbs) we could not maintain 22 mph wakeboard speed.
The boat would plow through the water at about 1819 mph and when it finally got up on a plane it would take off and hit about 30 mph in no time. Even the perfect pass couldn't regulate it. It would just surge back-and-forth plowing/planing.

I had a conversation with Eric at OJ and he recommended a 14.75 x 15.75.
To say that this propeller has completely transformed my boat would be an understatement.
It's absolutely fantastic. I lost about 300 RPM off the top end with no decrease in top speed.
I just about ripped my sons arms out of the sockets the first time I pulled him up on his wakeboard this morning. Way more low-end grunt. Probably gets on a plane twice as fast with half the bow rise. The best part is, absolutely no problem maintaining 22 mph with full ballast.

Eric knows what he's talking about. He's going to true up my old propeller for free and he knocked $75 off my purchase for being a Team Talk member.

Really great customer service, I couldn't be happier with the results.
Thank you Eric

Gotta be happy with that. Glad your boat is now doing what it should.
