    To nozzle or not to nozzle. :0)

    Just about to install pro series nozzle on my rxp-x, wanted to know what real world speed gains can expect to see, The reason i am asking is, I dont want to loose my holeshot, for a measly .5 mph or so.

    I'm sorry - but I can't chat with you about "pump rings" and "hole shot" ... It's against my religion.

    Well anytime you reduce your exit nozzle size you will lose some hole shot because there is less volume of water flowing. But you will gain top speed because the water velocity is increased

    Check out this thread:

    Just slapping a smaller nozzle on will allways reduce RPMs and hopefully subtract some holeshot and add some speed on top. But there is some discussion with the RXP-X's that once you take off the stock grate and put on an aftermarket grate that the stock nozzle has lost its effectiveness, so in that case moving to a 83mm nozzle with a correctly tweaked prop for this setup will provide overall improvements. This is debatable of course as you'll see in the thread above.

    I stayed with the stock nozzle.

    Just bend the prop a little to get the desired rpm's after adding aftermarket parts.

    Speed is nice,but a killer holeshot is what i want,this doesn't mean you won't gain speed with a 15/22r,kanaflex,and aftermarket grate.

    That's my opinion.
