160 prop for stage 1
Have any of you guys tried a 160 prop on a stage 1 FZ I am thinking about ordering a 13/18 as my basically stage 1 cavities out of the hole just asking before I buy one
If no one has tried it what do guys think about the pitch to much prop for a stage 1

I'm going with a 13/19 (160) Longblade with my present mods.
Will post RPM's and speed as soon as I get her in the water. Hopefully in a week or two.

I have absolutely no cavitation with my 155mm skat 13/23 for stage 1

same go with a skat 13/23 on a 55mm pump. you will loose alot of speed with a 160mm pump on a stage one.

i havent tried it but imo, its overkill.
i set up a buddys ski with stage one mods, air intake,ribbon delete, freeflow + good I/C and with a 155mm skat 14/21 there was zero cavitation, off course the grate/shoe was properly sealed, and im a heavy guy #260
with a lighter rider a 13 leading edge would have been enough.

I may do a little more testing (will try to get video) before I try the 160 I will try to post and see what you guys think if the weather ever clears up

Question for everyone: Are all 160 Skats "Longblades"? I ask because I've had two 160 Skats and they were both Longblades. Seems like a "Shortblade" 160 would be easier to turn.
