    Exclamation What pitch/brand?

    Hi guys, Solas grate worked, well, just great!

    Now looking to get a bit more bottom end from the ski and need some advice on what would be effective. (pitch & brand) Have looked on the net but would rather hear from someone who has done trial and error in this department.

    Also, is there a performance difference between stainless and aluminum? Less weight for the shaft to spin??

    Thanks in advance!

    If I remember right...you have a 96XP right?

    For stock a Skat Trak recommends a 17/22 swirl. But a 16/24 works better, especially with 85/88 nozzles. The 17/22 will kill your top speed about 1 mph, the 16/24 2-3 mph. You want holeshot...the 16/24 is it!

    Actually it's the '94 model with 650 (and I plan on keeping it even though I am searching for an 800)

    I 'm really not interested in top end, just holeshot.

    Again, just so hard to decide based on internet articles rather than word of mouth and I do appreciate the help!!

    Hi 96XPSS, what can I expect as a result from a 13/21 pitch solas concord and 650 NOZZLE KIT 85/88mm combination?
    Are the few hundred dollars going to make a noticeable difference?

    (Reason: motor is strong, but as I weigh 220 lbs, need that little something? extra to pull the ski out of the water faster when I spin out)
