    17/29 prop question

    I was wondering how many people have changed to the Sola 17/29 prop and modified the intake grate by cutting out 2 bars. I have taken off the intake grate and wondering if the Sola prop is really worth the $300.00.Please let me know what your experience has been.
    Thanks in advance

    It seemed to add a little bottom and mid... I didn't see any top end gains... If you were running a Macc's boost chip I'd say do it for sure, but looking back... hard to say if I'd drop another 300 bucks.

    I did both these mods on my 06R12X, It's a lot better with the hole shot, and definitely stays hooked up better in the chop. I am also running the Macsboost chip, intake, wedge, and IC. I felt it was worth it for me.

    As I said, if you are just going to cut the grate (that helps in itself on take off) and not do anything else to your ski... I'd probably leave it alone, I noticed mine helping coming out of corners with two up...

    The solas is a totally different design from the stock prop.

    they dont behave the same. The solas has more midrange and better rough water hookup regardless of pitch.

    Mine is a different pitch since I have an R12 but it made a world of difference with Solas
