    What's your definition of "speed"? For me it's how quickly the boat gets to top speed and accelerates out of corners. IMO the Pro1200 hull wasn't designed for ultimate peak speed but for excellent cornering. At the minimum you need 91 octane heads and reeds. This hull is very sensitive to trim so for me it took some experience to find the right trim for the conditions I was riding on.

    You could try a 6 degree wedge if you are looking for more top end. What impeller are you running? A Nujet 7.0 or with all the other mods listed you could even try a 7.5. I will also be trying the Virage 17/25 skat prop on mine as well.

    Doug,
    Could you maybe post a list of the props you have tried and the speed results you got with them? I would be curious to know what's the fastest top end and what was the best holeshot. Right now I have a 707 a Nujet 7.0 and a 17/25 virage prop. This might answer sprinklerguy's question a little bit too.

    What kind of RPMs are you seeing? Should be around 6700 I think. Check the condition of your impeller and wear ring.

    If you're getting 62 MPH with a passenger that's excellent! I have the Watcon plate and Polaris sponsons and they work. The sponsons reduce the effort required to turn the boat and the ride plate alters a lot of the performance characteristics-better hook up in the rough, less pitching, etc. I always focused on handling improvements because I think this hull was designed to excel at closed course type riding. The stock impeller worked great for me but I always turned about 6,900 RPM. Supposedly the engine makes peak power closer to 6,700 but it doesn't accelerate as hard if the impeller is pitched to hold it at that RPM. I tried a Wet Wolf adjustable cone and that's what I concluded.

    the skat styles keep the pump hooked up better and have a better takeoff and snap at slower speeds.the 7.0 was the fastest for me in either of my 1200 skis.i don't like the 6 wedge on a pro1200 unless the water is glass.chasing that last bit of mph gives up too much every where else on that hull.i prefer the hard acceleration and cornering which it WAS made for.nu-jet props don't reload as quick as skats.i have lake and river setups for all my skis.
