    You should keep your nozzle bro and buy something else.

    IMO - all you need is a 12" or larger adjustable wrench and a metric tape measure. Add 2mm to the trailing edge of your 15/20 and you should be fine.

    The best thing about the rings is yes you do pick up some speed and it also give you the option of fine tuning your setup when the weather changes etc.

    In summer you will prob be down 1-200 rpm compared to winter but by changing out the ring you can always tune for 8100 etc.

    I try to tune to the 82mm ring in the spring.so then when it warms up and i need RPMs i can throw the 83 ring in to bring them up..Then when it cools off i can put the 81 ring in and bring the RPMs down..this is just me though.

    I have been bending the crap out of my prop with all the temperature changes trying to dial it in. It seems much easier to just change out the size if the venturi and less stress on the prop. Surely all the bending can't be good for it.
