    Question on S/S wear rings and the 1/2 stainless ones

    Has anyone used the 1/2 stainless steel wear rings with any success?
    the ones like this,
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/140743565164...84.m1438.l2649

    it is only $30.00 dollars cheaper that the solid stainless ones, but I just did not know if they would hold up, and how thick the stainless ring is?

    you can get a solid stainless one from impros for only $100. i wouldn't chance it when a known good one is only $20 more.

    I saw that, are they any good?
    It just sucks that some tiny clam shells can ruin your wear ring real quick,especially right before a race, when they would not really hurt the prop or a S/S wear ring,

    Look at it from the other way..... If you have the SS ring the only thing that can give is your prop. 329.00 versus 65.00 is definitely a thing to think about....

    I've been using one of those rings for the past two years. I've put well over 100 hours on it and haven't had any issues. I'd buy another - if that helps...

    You can just get the prop serviced and have the tips welded up. You don't have to chuck the prop in the trash just because the blade tips have wear.

    When you install one check your pump for play. Last thing you want is to wear your prop down early because your pump needs a freshen up.
