    Aftermarket Prop Nose Cones: Use them or not?

    I'm curious as to how many people use the nose cones that come with aftermarket impellers or not. And the reasoning behind. Please vote and then give your reasoning.

    I never have. I've seen them get stuck before, which is why I dont. Also, I assume the gain of running one is minimal.

    Aftermarket Prop Nose Cones: Use them or not?

    I tried using the nose cone that came with my new Solas, after five min of riding I had to pull the pump again to pull it off the front on my driveshaft and switch back to the stock nose cone.

    The one on my Skat was a bitch to remove so I took it off and haven't looked back!

    Aftermarket Prop Nose Cones: Use them or not?

    I have always used them
    The older ones with no lock screw
    You had to remove the air behind it or it would ride up the shaft
    I feel it's best to keep as much salt water out of the threads as possible
