    What wear ring to get?

    Getting a new prop, gonna change out the wear ring too. Curious as to what everyone is running. Riva stainless, Solas stainless from impros, or OEM?

    OEM here. Too much shit and debris in the water I ride in. Really sandy as you get up river. I would stay with the OEM unless you plan on doing some racing. The stainless are also known for eating props every now and then.

    SS all the way. Alot of skis run SS Standard. I have had no issues with my setup.

    MS made a good point though. If you ride in a lot of shit, ss may not be for you.

    OEM here.. even with the turbo setup... too much weed, sand actually in the surf... damaged too many props running the SS setup... went back to oem wear ring and prop looks great even after 100hrs..

    SS if you suck anything up the damage its already going to be done. On ss it will chop up weeds and stick. On plastic all it takes is a pinecone to destroy a $40 plastic wear ring. I tested back to back ON MY SETUP a ss and a oem plastic and I had cavitation when towing. SS fixed my cavitation problems. All these tests were done with a new carbon ring and booth with 2 Orings keeping pressure on the boot.

    Just ordered a new oem replacement from impros. I figure it's cheaper to replace a 40 dollar ring than both the stainless and the prop when something chews it up. Thanks for the feedback!

    In theory, maybe. But in reality, the ss ring doesn't get destroyed when a prop gets banged up. I've had my ss ring for 150+ hrs and it still looks better than my oem ring did at 20hrs.
    This includes me sucking up rocks here in the desert about 80hrs ago rebuilt the prop at impros for $100 and was back on the water. Ss ring still hanging in there haha
