What is the best prop?
I am currently running a 14/19R with a Riva grate and am getting over 71 and 8100 rpms. I am going to add a powerfilter this year. Am I better to stick with the 14/19R or go to the skat 3 blade? Also, is it ok to run a 3 blade with a stock pump?

I have been hearing that the 3 blade is the way to go. I think I will be stopping at the Stage 2. I just wonder what pitch you would use with a Stage 2. From what I understand the newer 3 blades have been improved and you can run in a stock pump(no bearing mod needed). Of course I could be wrong. Someone else may want to chime in.

BoatAddict- How noticable was the change from stock to the 14/19R?

It gave me 1.5 mph and a stronger holeshot.
I thought that I read somewhere that someone was running 73+ with a stage 1 and a 3 blade?

I've hit 73.0 on a stage 1 + a riva sc wheel & a PPG power pipe using the 13/18 skat.
I'm a stage 2 now & got 75.3 last weekend with it repitched to 13/19.
here's a post of mine.

I was kinda wondering the same thing, i have a STG 1 with elminated resonator and BOV and i am going to be putting on a RR S/C Fan, Riva Reduction Nozzle, Riva rear Air Intake, Skegs, OPAS Block Offs, and RR Water Box. Should i also just stick with my 14/19R. Would i see a difference going to the 15/20 4 blade?
