    For Those Skeptics....................

    Just a little update on my 1500 single..........When I got my ski from Ben it was only running 74mph. Stage 2 RXP's were beating me...... Thats no more.....every time I tweak my prop add more gas the ski gets faster. Today went out, no humitity, no wind and no sun, rpms were 7210 two turns out on the highs and she ran 78.1 Prop is 15-26. I had no problems whatsoever. I know 80 is there with more prop and more tuning. I'm almost at my goal, then I'll be working on my second GPR, 1300 tripple. I know some of you are wondering how my ski is doing, and others could just care-less. A 4mph gain from my little tweaks here and there. I said it before and I'll say it again.......I'm happy with Bens build in my 1500.

    Great to hear your progress Frank!

    Start looking at your setup before tweaking that prop anymore. I went backwards after 15-25.

    So far the same for me, lost rpms and speed after that.. Back to a 14-25 for this weekend..

    Just keep up with ben he will get you going to your goal. Your 1500 should go way into the 80's Is this prop a dyna-fly 15-26?

    Well for sure on that dyna-fly I was spinning a group k 1390 it was at a 16 -26.. I know that big ol 1500 will out spin that dyna-fly. I am actually trying one of the vx props on my bb I will let you know whats up. On the 1500 set up your dyna-fly will just not have enough root angle, i pitched it as far as a dyna -fly could go and still ran out of prop.The vx is gonna get you were you need to be
