Just wondering what propellers EPIC 23v owners and previous owners are using for props.

My OJ 14.25x14 had a vibration under acceleration about 3,000+ RPM. I recently hit the bottom and had it repaired, but the vibration is worse. While I was waiting for the prop repair I purchased a 14x20 Michigan Wheel Ambush. The latter prop is no stump-puller, but is smooth as silk and performs reasonably well for both surfing and wakeboarding. The top-end speed is way too fast for the hull design, so I will probably keep this prop as the back-up. i just purchased an ACME 1239 (14x15.5) and I hope it will be as smooth as the Ambush. I am sure it will have enough jam to pull our normal load of about 3-4K since the 14x20 can doing it with a bit of struggle.

Has anyone noticed vibration or noise when changing to larger propellers like the Acme 1235?

Does your trailer have clearance to run a larger prop? The Zieman has barely enough room for the 14". You can tell where one of the previous owners had hit the steel running it on to the trailer!
