    To be honest I am about to redo both props and rings on my skiis and saw the ebay ones... I doubt they fit right... Clearance is very important from ring to prop... I would hate to do all that work and have it chew up the ring on the first crank...

    Any benefits on the stainless over the oem is the real question.

    PS 40-45 for oem is a deal. I would buy 2 at that price.

    I tried the "ebay" ones. The fit is good. The product sucks!! Go oem, the ebay one won't last you a month. The plastic is to hard. Instead of it "wearing" it breaks off in chunks.
    At least that's what happened with the one I tried. It as grey in color.

    Stainless is the way to go if you run clean waters and have no real worry of picking things up. It is a better performer. Remember, It's called a "wear" ring for a reason. I'd rather trash a ring then a prop.
    FYI with the stainless ring you will have to file any high spot on the prop that make contact with the ring when installed.

    I still run one of these and it's the best ring IMO.

    I would love to go stainless but I ride the delaware river in jersey. And it is far from clean lol. There is ones on ebay that says Oem. So at 45$ do u think its not Oem ?
