Hi there,

I damaged my prop and I'm seriously considering getting a new one and keep this one as a spare one.
I was thinking about upgrading to an ACME 1235 (14.4x14.25 - this one (http://www.activewake.com/acme-1235-wakeboard-inboard-prop.html)).

Anybody has recently tried this. One local dealer told me I'd better get a new OJ prop because the ACME on the LSV may create a wierd noise :confused:

(attached: my shredded prop :oops: )

Can't speak for Acme's making a weird noise but i would contact both Acme and OJ and see what's recommended for your boat. I do know OJ has a new prop out for the LSV. Nothing worse than buying the wrong prop for the application.

Thanks. I'll do my homework and report back the result :)

I've also been wondering about the 1235 on my 08 lsv... The only concern I have is the clearance between the trailer prop guard and the prop... The clearance would be small, but not sure exactly how small... but the ass end of the boat should always be floating higher right?

Tailgate--Ed G is doing a prop test next month on the 7th-weather and temp permiting--were also going to be using my boat-08 lsv. I think that prop you are talking about (1235) is one he has--I can let you know how it fits with the trailer

Allright, I call OJ, let them know what boat I have and how i use it. They recommended the OJ Prop 14.25 x 14.5 XMP Fusion ($450), I got it!

Bottom line: more pop when you take off, my buddyy is about 200lbs and I can clearly feel the difference.
At 20mph with ballast full it now runs at about 2800rpm, I think I was closer to 3000rpm with the factory installed prop.
The sound is different. I like it :)

So to conclude, I'm happy :p
I don't have much experience to compare with so it's hard to give more detail. this is my first wakeboat and second prop only!
