    What Impellor should I get for a stock 05' RXT??

    Just bought this 2005 RXT and already sucked a rock. Impellor is beat but still in working condition. Figure It will be down for a day or two for the SC washer replacement. Might as well replace the impellor at the same time.

    So my question is......What manufacture. style, and pitch impellor should I purchase for my stock RXT??? Looking for mid-range get-up-and-go as well as top speed. No plans for modifying this boat.

    thanks guys

    That seadoo pump loves suckin stuff up. I could ride a yamaha a year without a problem, with a RXP/RXT it's a weekly affair.
    What Bill said about the prop, that's a good one. I have a solas on mine. I have to pull the pump today bc something is in it.

    thats the truth RIDEALLDAY. I'm used to riding my GPR's and I could have sworn the water was atleast 2' deep. I gased it a little to swing it around and bang it sucked up a couple of rocks. One of the GPR's never would have done that. Now it needs a new impellor and wear ring. Go figure.

    the gtx/ rxt/ rxp all have the same pump which is stronger than the yams, they can hover the bottom better, so deeper water is needed before you cain it

    Cool

    imo a 13/18 solas is best or a 13/17 skat 3 blade swirl , both may require a tweaking to suit your ski . most props pitches needs tweaking to gain max rpm closest to your limiter so you dont lose precious hp .
