I'm no help because I don't have a G23 but I'll bump your thread because I want to know the answer. I'll be looking for a used G23 in the next year or two. Ruining a smaller engine with a bigger prop has always worked for my needs. If I could find a 550 in my budget I would get it. But that's like finding a needle in a haystack at the price I want a G for.


It's like wakeworld has complete gotten away from the upgrading props, ballast and even sound systems.

It is probably a worthy discussion, but I am not sure if I would expect a whole lot of difference between two different 17 X 17 props, just different manufacturers. They can adjust the cup, but the bulk of the thrust is provided by the diameter and pitch nonetheless.

I am sure that OJ would let you test one out and return it as long as you don't ding it, for just the price of shipping. Relative to the price of the purchase, that is chump change to be sure you have the best prop for your usage patterns.

I bought a 17x17 from Eric and it was OK. I called Eric told him what it was doing and he said send it back. I am not sure what he did to it but once I got it back it out performed my ACME 17x17.

Fully loaded with 600# lead (OJ Prop)

Wakeboard 4100 rpm
Surf 3250-3300 rpm

A prop that floats, would be good.

hes in new orleans

chris my neighbor has a 2017 g23 with the 450 and hes running the acme 2569, it seems to work great. only time it wouldnt get on plane was wakeboarding with full ballast and like 14-15 people. we dropped the weight to 2000 and it was good to go.

I would not think this was the case since it lowered the RPMs on surf and Wake. Im sure it was some type of cup change.
