Another Broken SOLAS impeller.....
broke another SOLAS concord impeller yesterday on the SJR, this time i was just cruising about 40mph (the last one i was doing a speed run) when the ski lost power and started shaking badly, at anything above 2000rpm i knew what it was right away and limped back to the ramp, about a 1/2 mile. am i the only one blowing impellers on a NA powered ski ?????? as you can see, it broker at the blade, not the root like the last one. and the funky cut/grove on the broken blade is where it was cutting my transom plate, need a transom plate now too, sold the one i had.....

I think I have seen two other VXRs that have broken Solas props. That's why I've stuck with Skat so far. I've liked Solas on other skis, but scared to invest in them for this model for this reason.

I'm running a Skat 13/16 about 8100 in Texas summer air right now. RPMs and speeds down. Ready for fall.

Holy crap...I've never seen a prop get that jacked up unless it ate something like a rock or piece of metal. Have you called Solas about the previous props and what do they say? Seems like they would replace it. I had Skat replace a prop because the finish was tarnished.
