    After talkin to dusty and MMandley i decided to go with the 1617 im still runing stock on my 2011 xlv and after the winter ballast upgrades it would just not give the performance i want imo. dusty and mmandley both gave the 1617 high reviews but the 1847 was rated really high as well. lots of people have had good things to say about the 1847. as for the 1235/1433 i seen alot of people sayin they had one . i never found anyone talkin bad about them but i also never heard anyone just raving about how great they where either. i have never had anythin but stock myself on my boat but next yr when i get my 1617 on ill post up some detailed stats so we can add to the wealth of knowledge on the forum

    Santa Claus just called and said "Ziiiiiiiipppppp" and a 1617 is on the way.

    So far with all the ballast upgrades and now a new prop, I am still under a basic snowboarding weekend at Squaw -- without the rediculous weekend traffic.

    The 1235 has been know to be a little too big when it comes to trailer clearance. The 1433 is basically the same thing so that is the best option for boaters looking to gain a lot of low end hole shot when running with ballast or at higher elevations. There will be a reduction in top end speed as the lower pitch will create more drag.

    The 1847 is very similar to the 1433. In my opinion the performance characteristics are too close and if you are going to spend the money get the best bang.

    If you run more than 2500 lbs. of ballast the 1617 is an awesome prop. By lowering the pitch to 13.75" the boat will have no problem getting to surf speeds or up on plane when wakeboarding. Even when you are pulling up a 250+ lb. rider. If you do not need to scream across the lake or barefoot there is nothing better.

    With all of this said Acme has a ton of props in the line. There is something for everyone. We know people do ski behind their v-drive boats and if that is a concern contact WakeProps or buy an Acme 1939.

    Happy Turkey Day!

    Here's my ACME 1235 on my '10 LSV w/boatmate trailer.

    Still love the hole shot and it tops out at 38.5mph no ballast.
