I currently an running the 1235 on my original X Star with the LTR engine.
I am starting to pick up the ski a bit more and more these days.

My spare is an older CNC'd OJ 13.7 X 17. .110 cup

Was doing some research and the Acme 537 keeps coming up. While I am normally an Acme guy was wondering how that OJ will perform compared to the 537 which is 13.5 X16 with 105 cup. Really don't want to drop 400 on a prop but if the performance is that much better with the 537 I may have to ditch one of them............thoughts

I am just thinking that 1235 at the 33 I ski at is spinning a ton of tons that I can save some gas on by dropping them.with a new prop. I really don't slam my boat out as.much as I used to with a big crew now that I have a family crew. So was thinking I won't miss the 1235 that much as its all a trade off.

I have a beautiful 537 I would trade for your 1235 if you are interested. I have an older Malibu VLX and I am under the impression that they where the stock prop for quite a few years. I like mine, I have 2 of them. The one never made it on my boat because I haven't hit anything with that boat. I run over 2500 pounds of water and it gets right up to speed quickly.

Thanks nick, not ready to swap just yet completely away from my 1235. If I can get my hqnds on a demo a 537 and like it I be more than willing. However not ready to make that jump just quite yet.

Sounds good, My boat came with the 537 then I bought the other for a spare for a good price. I have always wanted to try the 1235 but wasn't going to drop the $500 or whatever to get one. I run over 2500# like I said and it seems to do just fine. I have skied behind it a couple times but I ski through the coarse with a different boat. My VLX wake is just to big at shorter lengths to be fun.
