    Solas Impeller for 250x, I am impressed

    I know everybody bad mouths the Solas for the Ultra. But I have been sitting on a new one for around 2 years now. I got it before I read how everybody said they were junk. But this past Monday I sent my OEM impeller off to Dave at Impros for some freshening up and I put on my new Solas so I could still ride while until my stock one got back. I went out to the lake yesterday for a little fun. After warming it up for 10 minutes I got on it across the lake. With a full tank of fuel it ran [email protected] the first pass in light chop. Went back and forth 4 times and the slowest it went was 70.4. I was shocked. The fastest this ski ever run was [email protected] on glass with a near empty fuel tank and it went the fast on the return but never went that fast again until now. Cavitation? Everybody says it cavitates bad, But mine only slips real lightly on the initial hit right out of the hole and that's it. After that it's hooked and gone. By the end of my ride the wind kicked up real hard and the water got real rough so I didn't get a good run on a low fuel tank. Maybe I got a freak impeller, But it sure works for me. Faster top end speed at less rpm, Whats not to like

    well lowering your RPM'a and / or gaining speed is no different on this ski to any other out their.....
