X2 Propeller Choices

I have a 2007 200VRS (X2) with the RTP engine. I run 1,300 rear and 700 front ballast for a total of 2,000 pounds plus 4 to 7 people. It currently has an OJ 14.25 X 14.5 prop that performs quite well, but I would like to lower the RPM's a bit because we cruise a bit, and God forbid, pull the kids on the tube sometimes.

We will Surf 1/3, Wakeboard 1/3, and Cruise-Tube 1/3

Does anyone with this set up run an OJ 522 (14.75X15.5) or an Acme 2061 (14.5X15.5)?

Are you happy with it????

Ideally I would like to lower my cruising RPM with out killing my hole shot.

I always like to have a spare prop, just trying to make the best choice.

I ran a 522 on my X1 with mcx (I know, no similarities), but that prop could get out of the hole with 3k lbs of ballast...although not lightning fast, and still go 47 mph unweighted. It's a good multipurpose prop in my opinion. I feel like the 14.75" diameter got good grip with minimal slip. I later replaced the 522 with a 14.25 x 14 once we started running 4k lbs of ballast and that prop was fast, but seemed to slip a lot while getting on plane. The boat could hit the rev limiter while pulling out of the hole.

I would suggest our new WAKEPRO V -3 #805, 14.75 X 15.25, for your application. This prop replaces the 522 and is quicker and faster than the 522.

I run a OJ 522 on my 2007 X2 and it works great. I only have about 1200lbs ballast though.....

I thought the prop everyone was using was the 14.25 x 14.50? When did it change to the 14.75 x 15.5 and now the 14.75 x 15.25?

Is there a comparison of the three?

Mine came with the 14.25X14.5, I think this changed in 08 to the 14.75X15.5. The newest, latest, greatest is the 14.75X15.25

My stock was 14.25 x 14.50 and then bought the OJ 14.75 15.50 last year. I like it but not a great difference in the RPM range.

My 07 came with a 13 something, don't remember exactly. Then in 2011 we upgraded and changed to the 14.25 x 14.50 per OJ suggestion. I didn't even know there was anything else...

Guess thats why I've started seeing the 14.25 x 14.50 come up for sale lately.
