Last comment Euro is you may want to adjust weight (front to back etc) in the boat a bit to see if it makes any difference. Might try a fat sac or similar and move it around and see if you gain any performance. Agree with Doo, have heard great things about Eric and if you call him with prop details and RPM's he can probably get you a MPH or two...

Thanks, Hull is spotless. Fresh water lake at sea level. I appreciate your point about prop but my query relates to the standard spec and expected performance. My family undertake all 5 disciplines (Slalom, jump, tricks , wakeboard and barefoot) and as said by one of the other team talkers the top end issue is barefooting a 16+ stoner plus when I buy and expensive piece of kit I expect it to hit the speeds in the reviews. Again thanks for the input.

You obviously have a 1:1 transmission and it seems you are reving up properly. You could come up another 200 rpms and maybe a new prop will do that. Do you carry a lot of gear in the boat? A 5mph difference in speed between your boat and my boat does not make sense.

okay, thank you for clearing that up!
try taking as much weight out as you can and play will fuel load levels.
I would not expect more than 42 from the 197 hull with a MCX after a few people and gear in the boat. One reason why your older prostar was a rocket is because of wetted surface area of the hull. the 197/X7 is heavier for one, then add the extra (WHOLE LOT) of wetted surface area is a HUGE factor for top speed.
I want to touch again on props... the stock prop is a good average for the average owner to work at average altitudes, etc.
a prop tailored to YOUR needs will be a HUGE advantage. by the way, OJ has the try before you buy program. he will send you any prop you like and you dont pay until you want one of them or your happy.


btw, sounds like a great boat for a great family.! please post pics when you can.

Don't forget to call ACME and try some of their props. My friend has an X7 and got the best performance out of a 3 blade ACME. He also tried some OJ's. I forget the number of the prop but give them a call also and get some trial props from them.

lately I have found the CS of bill to be a little lack luster. maybe its the time of the year or something.
Acme does make great props, but what many do with OJ is get props the same specs on paper as the other. OJ said to get the truest comparison between say the acme 13x12 would be a 13x11.5 OJ.
You have to speak directly to OJ and I recommend telling him what props you have or are going to try from the other brand, then will get you the best one for you app.
example, I had more questions about props... he said lets put $XXX.XX on your card and tell what one you like better. Eric as answered my questions with only mentioning the price of the prop one time, plus you dont have to pay for it up front.

you may find the acme to be the best, but you will never truly know till you have tested all the OJ counterpart

thanks. Would love to post image but dont know how.
Can you give me an "idiots" guide.
I am new to this Team talk game.
Also for all team members just for info I am a terired Brit (so its a BRit idiot) in the UK

Also for others when testing top end speed the only additional weight over the 190/197 is myself at 16 stone , the X7 tower and the empty fatsac etc.

Click POST REPLY (on left under last post)

scroll down, click on Manage Attachments
browse your computer to find the picture you want to post and click it, then click upload.
all pics have to be under 5mb in size I think.
You could load them into photobucket and that will resize them.

btw, what is 16 stone?
and what is the fuel load? try 1/4 and 1/2 tank and see if it makes a difference.

edit. found it... 14lb to one stone
