Prop?

My friend just purchased an 07 Saltwater X-Star with the MXC engine. He also purchased the Fly high fat sac system. The boat has a hard time getting up on a plane and I have read that a diffrent prop would help the boat get up on a plane easier. Any other info on a way to get the boat up would help as well.

Thanks

Brac

It will make a HUGE difference, especially if the standard 13x17 is currently on there. It will feel like a new boat.

Ask your dealer if he will exchange it for you if you just purchased

Chech your boat as most 07 now come with this prop mentioned above. Mine came standard with it. I called Eric at OJ and he said almost all 07 have it on the boat already.
