so i have a question? a lot of yall have the acme 1847 but which is better 1847 or the 1617. im wanting to reprop my boat this winter (2011 xlv with 325hp) since i am planing to upgrade balast as well (900 sumo's in back , 1150lb fly high in ski locker and IBS bag upfront maybe) but i cant decide which prop to go with so any help or input would be appreciated.

I for one had a wake board prop already and wanted something better.
The 1617 is that prop.
Its got more pull then the 1617 and top speed is basically the same, its just not the popular guy in the list.
If your thinking of a 1847 then i would just get the 1617 and be done thinking. This way you can literally run as much weight as you want. I had no problem plaining out with 3K ballast and a boat full of people.
On my wake board prop it had a hard time doing that.

You have to consider a post Engine Nut made about how to prop your boat. It comes down to when you have it weighted, and up on plane can you get to your max RPM and still be accellerating. This shows the boat it proped correctly for the engine and load. If you cant reach max RPM then your over weighted, or under proped and working your engine much harder and this can cause engine failure.
I know im running more weight then my boat can handle and because my prop wouldnt allow the boat to goto its full RPM then i knew i needed a bigger prop. Thus came the 1617 from Wake Makers.
I pretty sure Dusty is running the 1617 since the Texas Jam and can attest to its effectivness.
I will say if i had the 1235 to begin with i prolly would have never noticed i needed a new prop, but i have the OJ version and between the growl and lack of power i wanted something new and i was leary on the 1235 as its really the same type of prop as the OJ. I wanted to make sure if i was comming out of pocket i got the best prop i could

Why do i have the 1433?
I thought i knew but may have no idea. I was thinking it was the 1235 if you aren't worried about clearance?

So you are saying its for people that are worried there will be clearance issues?
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 1433.2006 Supra 24SSV
