    Skat swirl or Solas DF?

    Can anyone give me some insight on what the better props are for the SHOs and my specific application? I have a etech wheel, powershot, intercooler, a few other things here and there, in a GPR hull. I'm looking for decent holeshot but want big top end. Is the skat better for holeshot, and dynafly better for top end? I seems like a lot more people are running Skat impellers on their SHOs and FZR/S's. I'm looking at the 13/22R (will probably have to get it repitched anyways) but wanted input before I pulled the trigger...

    Not a real good holshot prop.

    I had a couple issues causing cavitation.

    1) transom plate was not sealed
    2) midwall bearing was pushed forward allowing a huge water/air leak

    Both these issues are resolved now. I'm in the process of installing my new 160 mm pump with dynafly impeller and i don't expect much cavitation, if any at all.

    Even with my 158mm setup and the issues resolved i think cavitation would have been next to nothing.
