    2005 RXP Stage3-What prop would work best???

    Help! What would be the best prop to use for my ski...2005 RXP with the stage3. I have a 3 blade in there now which feels great until about 70mph, after that it doesn't seem to be pulling that hard. Should I be using a 4 blade prop instead to get the best top end mph? Thank you

    You can go with a 15/20r but most like the newer 15/22r....Youll see more out of the 15/22 than you will out of the 15/20

    This, I had a Skat 3 blad and was against the limter and it wouldd only pull 77, I tried a 15/20 that was laying around and was still against the limiter, now I'm running a 15/22R and wide open I'm pullin 8240-8260, so I will have it "tweaked" a little after summer. Either the 15/20 or 15/22 are going to need a little "tweak", but the 15/22R gave me a better base line to start with.

    depends ont the temp...a normal s3 calls for a 3 balde but i dont like them...a 15.20 4 blade will need some added unless it it really hot out and 15 22 will need less....all depends on the weather and water temps...other mods..ect.. a 15 20 s3 boat without the ecu was spot on 8100 even in the fla heat.. now add the ecu ..and cool it down and i was all over the limiter ..repitched to 15 23 ..

    i now run a 15 22 ..with a stock 83 nozzle ..and have to add pitch to it..even in the heat..dont know what i am going to do this winter...
