    Thumbs up Props?

    Been away from my ski for awhile and was trying to see whats the latest greatest craze. I was running a 15/20 then went with the 3 blade. 3 blade kicks but for wave jumping and am wondering if thats still the prop of choice for bottom end.

    Is Kanuck back?

    I have just jumped on a on a three and I aint going back. The loss of of top speed is worth the accel anyday. Hydrojunkie has just put a three in his latest rxp and loves that so maybe the day of killer accel over topend is here. I know which I want. Plus Im starting CC racing so having a three blade is the only way really. R88

    hi r88ory long time no speak.
    what 3blade are you running?and dimensions?
    i get alan to bend my stock p-x prob from 15/19 to 13.5/21 and it certanily has made a big diffrence.
    but id rather have more accel over top-end so am looking at 3blade and a 8400 remap.

    hows yous ski running?do you ever do to loch view in dumfries?

    Have u even tried the single blade? Word on the street is the "corkscrew" is pulling pure grunt. Guess nothing out there since the 3 blade bang. Well, I love the 3 blade on mine.

    3 blade is still the prop for thrust!

    Is Kanuck back?...
    Hoss, glad to see you back. The return of Hoss and Kanuck... gotta love it!

    Here is the latest offering... light weight, revs fast... slight reduction in speed though, like the previous 3-blade.

    I have the 3 blade and 4 blade solas and 4 blade stocker... hands down the 3 blade is the prop for me.... 3 blade keeps me glued to the water, especially with the kick on the leading edge and the setback mod... those two tweaks made a huge difference in staying hooked up.

    Just got my 3 blade back today, re-pitched to 16.5/23.0- for the b-kit

    What 3 blade prop are you using with the RXP-X? Who does the mods on them? I'd like to have more holeshot and hookup on my ski, so if the 3 blade improves that, I'd be interested.
