    Honda prop... school me please

    I guess it could be considered a conversion question so hear me out..... from what I read the high root angle helps achieve some higher speed MPH at a lower RPM and were used by some in the higher HP/torque triple pipe or conversion skis.

    So here's my question.

    1.Anyone thoughts or have any opinions on how one may work in a newer kawi 300/310/310++? They make loads of low end torque but the way the charger is designed the power rolls off pretty quick past 8300ish RPMs.

    2. Are these props any good off the line/out of the hole?

    3. I have a set back 160 skat pump along with the stock if anyone feels any other options are better.

    I've heard of a few other high root angle props making good speed down low it's just nothing I have any knowledge about. Not trying to reinvent the wheel just not afraid to have a custom prop made if there's some hope it could work.

    I'm all ears, Thanks
    Mike

    my advise would be to get one of the prop / pump pros a 300/310 to keep for a few weeks... honestly I think one of the big things Yamaha has had going for it the past decade is the top tuners like Fernando, Jim, Kerry ect have all been Yamaha focused. I think one of these guys could help a lot. No disrespect meant to any of the Kawasaki tuners or others I did not mention.

    If I had one to loan I would. I know with time I'll dial it in but a point in the right direction helps ya travel down a few less dead end roads

    What you don't have a 310 sitting in the garage to ship to them?? ya I remember 9 years ago? Fernando sending me props to test on my 1300.... was not ideal but he helped me a lot.

    I guess I could also ask some more general questions that aren't so brand specific

    1.what are the benefits to using a high root angle prop

    2. why do you think most manufacturers got away from using props with a large root angle

    I can't even begin to give u a answer of how it would work on a Kawi but I know in the yamahas it's def does not whole shot but it is def faster on top end and doesn't take a lot of rpms to get good speeds.

    Not what you were asking but the difference between a 13-21 pitched lx prop and a 13-21 250 stock prop is huge, on my ski the lx prop would spin to 8500 on the limiter at 68 and the 250 prop was at 6k at 65. Same pitch, same tune, same motor, same pump, and same nozzle. The root angle, blade profile, and blade length all come into play. The solas 10-16 was about the same as the stock pitched lx prop 12-18 I think which was a totally different shape.

    So if I'm reading that right sean, your lx prop with less root angle spins a lot more rpm at the same MPH (or close) to the 250 prop which has more root angle?
