Skat Trak Swirl Opinions...never owned one.
I see a lot of Solas and a few Nujet props pop up for sale, or listed in Signatures, but I rarely see any Skat Trak swirls. What is the general opinion on those for the GPR/XLT crowd. I found a great deal on a new one.

I know with my seadoos, the solas was always best for mid and top end so higher top speed, but if you want killer holeshot and punch down low to mid range the skat was the best!!
I just recently bought a gp1300r and plan to run a skat prop as the ski will be set up for wave jumping mostly!!
What pitch is the skat??

The skat is a 13/18, I'm currently running a solas 13/19, I'll change them out and see what happens when the warm weather returns. I too am more concerned about low end, but I don't want to lose any on top. My XLT is roughly a stage 2, so the 13/18 may be a bit on the low side. We'll see.

You are entitled to try as you would like, but isnt a 12/18 a stock pitch prop? Rpms will be waaaay up

Would throw in an Advent like you mentioned or vf3's if you're looking to wake her up.

numbers from one prop brand to another cannot really be compared. hub design, blade over lap, etc all come into play.
Skat makes an excellent product. go with their recomendations for your application.
