    RXP-X - Holeshot - 83mm v. 87mm Nozzle?

    I've heard people say that a Solas 15/22R can be modded to give the same (or better) holeshot with an 83mm nozzle as with the same prop setup for the 87mm nozzle. And that the 83mm gives more mid and top speed to boot. Has anyone found this to be true?

    I haven't timed it, but I can't really tell a difference between the 87 and the 82... Still lauches just as hard IMO

    I can't comment on how a modded 15/22 responds with those nozzles, but I can tell you there IS a difference going from 87 to 83 with a stock modded prop. I'm a stickler for holeshot and I can notice it without a doubt. Now, you may be able to get an 83mm and 15/22 to holeshot good or the same over stock prop 87mm, but I don't see how an 87 wouldn't give you better. This ski was made for holeshot, not chasing top speed numbers. Do the best you can top end wise with an 87mm and you will have a wicked all around setup.

    I'm running the 15/22R with an 82mm and I don't see a decrease in holeshot, but I think you would have to measure it somehow. Maybe it is less, but it's so strong anyway, I don't notice it. I think you would have to run them back to back and see. I picked up about 1.5 mph with the 82.

    And RPM?

    I saw a big difference in holeshot & accelleration staying with the 87mm versus the Pro-Nozzle & any smaller ring. It just lost the ZIP!

    I would imagine if you had a prop tuned for max RPMs with an 87mm nozzle, then put an 83mm nozzle on that the acceleration would decrease. I'm wondering what happens if you repitch that same prop for top RPMs with the 83mm nozzle. Does it regain the acceleration at that point?
