Prop Acme 1285 14.5x14.25 - $400

Selling my Acme 1285 14.5 x 14.25 .105 cup, spline. It's coming off an Xstar MCX 350. Prop has less then 25hrs on it and is perfect. I'm selling because I have two of the same and am going to run a cheaper back up.

$400.00 OBO + buyer shipping

Just looked them up on ACME...they are all on sale right now...

Is this the prop everyone is running on the X-Star with the MCX? How does it change the boat? Better response down low with weight? I am assuming lower top speed as well.

It's about $520 new + shipping.

Mine is $400 OBO :-)

I am running mine on a star with the MXC.

The prop is a monster! It gives you a such and improved hole shot, I'm running PWT + another 500 in the bow, get's the boat up on plain great. Changes the top end for sure, I dont know how much I never really watched how fast my boat went before. I generally stay around 35mph when I'm running to the other side of the lake. From what I've heard it's about a 3-5mph difference.

I ride at 25mph, RPM's with the 1285 are about 4100 at that speed. I really don't know what they are with a stock prop, I only drove my rig once with the stock prop and PWT, thought it sucked and got a new prop the next day. At 25mph and no ballast they are around 3400-3500 with the 1285.

I have an Acme 1593...

That is a 14.5 X 16 splined shaft prop. It has only been used twice. Never reworked. $600 when it was new. It needs to go this summer.

Send me a Private message if interested.
