    Throttle after wave launch? Y or N

    I read somewhere that you should chop the throttle after launching off a wave to prevent damage to the driveshaft &/or coupler due to the sudden torque created on landing (little/no torque on the drive train when airborne).

    Opinions?

    Yeah let off before you land...you can bust your crank too.

    It's also very annoying when your full throttle while your airborne

    Your Spinning The Motor At Say 6000 Rpms, You Leave The Water, It Shoots Up To Say 7000 Rpms Cause There Is No Load On It, You Re-enter The Water With The Impeller Spinning 7000 Rpms When A Second Ago There Was No Load And Now There Is. Not Good

    I could care less about the extra noise. I'm out in the ocean anyway. My only concern was damage to the drive line by the sudden load created when re-entering the water.

    Thanks for info guys.
