Prop recommendation


Recommended Posts

I have a 2014 23LSV. I added two 800 piggyback sacks in the rear lockers of the boat. I have the 350 hp monsoon motor and I am running an ACME 537 prop. Needless to say the boat acted more as an anchor under full power. I could not get on plane. What prop is recommended to get this beast on plane and also allow a decent slalom session at 35mph??

I run the 2315 , but don't slalom , not sure what the rpm's are at 35 . I have the sumo 900's in the rear, and run a 650 In the bow.

Unless you run bow weight even the 1235 will lag a bit when trying to hit 11-12 when loaded.

Check the classifieds , teamerikson has a 1615 that would be a good option.

There have been several threads on this topic and I would summarize like this.

Most people didn't buy the 23lsv to slalom, the split wake and surf, (no one ever tubes) so if slalom is in your bag of tricks be prepared to run high RPMs and see your GPH in the teens. But you will have a decent hole shot, and enough prop to plane wakebording under load, and solid surf wave.

My neighbor has a 14lsv(with the 409) and the 1235, both he and my dealer at the time said I was nuts going with the 900's over the 750's and propping up to the 2315. (But I have better surf wave, and use less gas)
