Best Solas impeller for me? Please advise
I just bought a 97 Challenger 1800 with the twin 110hp engines
One of the impellers is a bit chewed up, and the other one looks fine but has a cracked wear ring. So I decided that since I'm pulling both sides out, I might as well get two new matching impellers.
The SBT exchange program is sold out for my boat, so that nudged me into getting two Solas impellers. I am looking for some feedback as to which would suit me better... the Concord SD-CD 15/23, or the X Prop SD-SC-XO 16.5/23.5
I don't tow any skiers or anything in the boat, so I don't really care about hole shot. I would like something that has good performance and a high top speed. Acceleration would be nice, but I am more concerned with top end.
Would the X Prop be a better choice considering what I want out of it?
If anyone has experience with either of these impellers and how they perform versus the stock impellers, please chime in!
I'd appreciate any help! Thanks!

Also it seems those props are WAY to big. I don't really know much about the older seadoo boats but if a stock RXP-X ski has 255hp, do you really expect each of your 110hp motors to have enough juice to turn it? I'd think you would need something with way less pitch.

Those are the (only) two props that are recommended on Solas's website ( see second row from bottom... 780(2) Challenger 1800 97-99 )
There are a few threads on here from people with boats similar to mine using the Concord, but I haven't seen any feedback on the X Prop

Call impros, they can recommend the best prop for you, I went with the 16/24 Sea-Doo Skat-Trak Swirl, we mainly use our boat for sking so we went with the 16/24, but from my research everyone recommends the swirl...
