    Wear ring damage - is this too much?

    Hey guys I thought I should post a pic of the damage to my wear ring and get some input as to whether or not I should be concerned about it. This is my 2012 rxt 260 that I have 3 hours on. It picked up a twig/stick that I was able to pull out with a grapple device I have but not before it did this. Let me know if this scratch is something I need to have taken care of or if I'm worryin' about nothin.

    + 1---It looks OK, are you getting any cavitation?

    I don't think I'm getting any cavitation. I'm not sure exactly when I picked up the stick but I was concerned enough after I got out of that river because it was so dirty from snow runoff that I checked when I got home. That's when I found the stick. But I didn't notice any difference in performance while I was out there.

    Thanks for the quick replies. I appreciate it.

    That looks normal as prop flex will do that to a plastic wear ring...if it starts to get deeper, or you start to experience cavitation then i would look at replacing it..
