RXP: 3 Blade
This new 3 blade prop kicks asss! Moves some serious H2O. So much so as I could have gotten the back flip with only 2 gegrees of wedge. I couldn`t hold it as the ski`s bottom started to rotate faster than I wanted. I was scared. You need to be ready and apparently I wasn`t. The ski landed upside down but my hand was still on the HAMMER. DO NOT RUN THE RIVA REAR AIR INTAKE for big wave jumping. I`ve got a gallon of water in the crankcase. I pulled the plugs at the launch to try desperately to give it another stab but was shooting water 15 ft in the air outa all 3 holes for about 20 secs. Prob was I had a full tank still. So now I`m going with a 4" tube right under the steering shaft/mount. I never had probs with the rear intake until today. The damn lanyard stretched until the ski popped up and righted itself yanking my hand off throttle. Afetr that I had to get towed in by Chasing the Sun (Tony). He was even getting mad air on the RXT. Surprised the hell outa me but the waves were perfect.
If you want air the 3 blade is deffinately the way to go.
I know now I`m not ready for the back flip as I may just get killed.

Hoss, what do you consider big wave jumping? I hit some chop all the time in the OC bay but never anything too big. Hell, we don't even have waves too big up here on the East Coast.

If anyone is going to pull of thebackflipit's going to be you. Really need to starttapingthis attempts though. I bet Tony was not looking forward to performing CPR on you.
Should hold off and wait till MBIII to attempt the first RXPbackflip.

Hoss...Chest protector AND helmet. And if you do that again... the only safety equipment that will help you is a
RED shop rag in your intercooler
