    Props?

    Hello,

    After 15 years of sking I suck a rock and killed my impeller.
    Is there any difference between a solas 14/19 and a solas 14/19R impeller? refer to my tag for set up.

    thanks


    chris

    The "R" model means that Riva pitched blocked it before it left their facility to get an accurate pitch the whole way around.

    So should I go with the 14/19 or wait and order the 14/ 19R? I had the 14/19R and it worked well the last 2 years untill I killed it. I willpost the uglyness later.....

    I bought a 14/19 and had SFR mod it for my mods and rpm's I was turning. I couldn't tell the difference between the two. When I got the 'R' impeller, it should have measured 14/19...... One blade was 14/19 another was 14.5/21, 14/20 and 14/20. I had it 'trued' to the correct pitch and then tested it. Night and day difference.
