    Surely it is the same performance as the 1235? When buying, I was told it was the one to buy at the time (this is prior to the 1617 coming out). I have been happy with it but just always see the 1235 pop up with no mention of the 1433.
    Yes i think you are correct in the only real difference in clearence.

    Yes i do think the 1617 is a newer prop that came out to combat the ballast systems people are running. Its very simular and really other then it being quite compared to my OJ i only felt a difference when the boat was loaded down.

    My buddy said he feels like it pulls harder from a stop at the end of the rope and this maybe true as this year was the first year i ran it and also the first time i have injured my shoulder getting pulled up from a stop.

    Normally i would have let go with a hard pull, but i was also determined to get wake skatting down and the board i was using is a PITA to get up on. So i was holding for dear life and didnt want to let go LOL

    I too run the 1433. It is just what you have posted. Before I got mine I was told the difference between the 1235 and 1433 is not noticeable.

    That is correct. The difference is not noticeable as it is the same prop minus a 1/4" off each blade.

    Just a heads up that Acme has notified us of a price increase that will take affect 01/01/2013. It is not small. WakePROPS.com is currently putting all props on sale to match our competitors through the end of the year.

    With that said the Black Friday / Cyber Monday sale will give you an additional discount. It will be worth it to buy in 2012. The retail on an Acme 1433 is going up to $610.00.

    Yikes - glad I bought when I did.

    Still leaves me wondering......... WHY???

    I would think with new design, product innovation, more radical 5-blades, etc the cost would/could go down.

    Props are a giant piece of Nibral (alloy of nickel, bronze, and aluminum) that is CNC'ed down to a finished product. Acme has absorbed the raw material cost increases for the past two seasons. I would have rather seen smaller price increases every year rather than the bigger increases dealers and consumers will see for 2013. Talk about sticker shock.

    More innovations in my opinion will drive the price up. As manufacturers start to add more blades and deliver more precise products to increase efficiency the labor costs will rise.

    Thanks for the rational, likely more accurate, response.

    So is the 1617 the one for wakeboarding/surfing behind an '02 LSV that I am redoing the complete ballast system?

    I just bought the boat earlier this year and it came with low hours and a well dinged up prop.

    Eric.
