I was asking myself the same thing I even ended up buying one, couldnt turn it down for the price.

yea, i can't believe people are asking $300 for them too. especially for USED ones. a new one is only $315..
mine was new and i let it go for $260 to some lucky guy in Il.
now that i have the riva ecu and plan on using it, i kind of regret selling my 15/19r. well, i've had my hands on several so i'm sure another one will come my way soon.
i guess we just have more top speed fiends than accel fiends in the middle of summer. the extra 1-2+ mph wind cooling you off at WOT must be the decision maker

I don't know either but i'm still torn on which to buy. I keep seeing these 3 blades go cheap and really am tempted. I wish i could test a 15/20 and a 15/19 back to back.

Once I get my 15/19r dialed in perfect, I will do a back to back test between it and the Solas 15/20r.

man... i watched two very competitive skis today.... one running a 4-blade and one running a 3-blade.... the 4-blader was turning less rpms then the 3-blader.... and the 4-blader won all across the board everytime out of the hole, from a roll, no matter what it leaped ahead for that first stab at the throttle...

I did do a back top back test with in 10mins of each other for the pump swap. I had 3 pumps loaded with prop ready to go and the out come everytime was the 3 blade prop romped the 4 blade out of the whole and felt so much more fun in the ski, BUT I always had a faster ski top end with the 4 blade SOLAS. So I went with the Skat 3 blade as I love the pull and fun factor it gave me.
My actual 2 cents in 3 RXPs.
