    Which prop to run???

    Rough weekend ..Wife decided to beat her ski up....Tore up the prop,wear ring...ect ect ect..Sat here deciding if there may be a 3 blade out there better than the solas 4 blade..her mods are:

    4 inch custom air intake
    Riva intake grate
    14/19r(trashed)
    ride plate holes filled..

    She was running 71-72 at 8140-8160rpm
    Is there a superior 3 blade over the 14/19 4 blade ??or should i just go back to the 14/19r..Thanks Guys

    The 3 blades fit for that amount of HP don't provide as much top speed as the 4 blades. If you want more accel. you should check out some of ou812's posts. He has a number of posts with info on the 3 blade. If you look around for another 14/19r and can't find one let me know and I may be able to help.

    Skat 13/18 3 blade . .7 mph slower than the 14/19 but it out accells it all over the place!

    I have one you're welcome to try, I'm not ready to sell it yet & it's my spare prop, but don't let the wife ride it.. If you like it & want it, we might can make a deal.

    Stocker is a good prop. But he's running a stage 1 but without the wedge which I think is better.
