    Leading edge pitch

    Hey guys anyone tried pitching the leading edge of your prop, I see some guys running 12-13 on the leading edge. Does this improve acceleration ? I bent the first inch of the leading edge experimenting any insight into this thanks.

    I would say yes. Ski only had 4" and SCOM back then. I think I'm just used to it now. Only ski that I have raced locally and lost to is Scott's and ECPchris. I'd say try 12.5 but no more.
    I've played with pitches all last summer and this spring. I'm at 12.5/21 now and happy.

    SFR pitched my Solas to 12.5/21 Acceleration improved while still maintaining 85+ top end.
    Tried a few other props but this one seems to work the best with my combination.
