I used the Acme 1285 on my '06 X2 with great success. Sometimes we ran stock + 1400 with six to eight people with no problems. Also ran the OJ 14.25x14 as a spare with similar results. I'm planning on using the 1285 on my x30 on order.

follow up to this thread from last year, i spoke to acme last week and they recommended either the 2307 (15x12, .105 cup) or the 2197 (14.5x12, .150 cup). I expressed concerns about the RPMs at speed, and based on that they steered me in the direction of the 2307.

I have a friend that just bought a 1516-122m (basically a 14.5x12.75 .105 cup) and the results of his test are promising, i dont think i could go wrong either way.

Planning on ordering it soon

Increased diameter and less pitch do seem to be the trends among surfers/boarders. Please let us know what you find. I am ordering today as well. Good luck!

Bump WillyT what did you do? I am looking at upgrading now that I have added more Ballast to the Port for surfing, and with more than 4 people in the boat its grunting and now much of a hole shoot anymore.
I don't barefoot nor have I ever ran my boat at 40+ MPH, I typically run 28-30 MPH if just running the river to go eat.
Keeping fuel economy in mind. Whats the outcome?
