Prop gauges is a good tool to have!
If you guys/girls are not checking your props and matching them to your setup on your ski your not getting the best performance out if it as you can. Why spend hundreds of dollars on bolt on go fast parts " reeds, carbs,big bore cyls, heads, C D I, H O pump, porting" and not matching your prop pitch to get the best out of your ski is major over sight on your part./ The quality and accuracy of prop from the mfg. is very poor at best. Just ask the guys that are fastest if they re work there props and they all will say yes. All the HP in the world won't make your ski faster if the prop is not correct. This was not done as a profit maker for me. Most places sell gauges for $80- up. It cost me almost $50.00 each to make these gauges. Check out the for sale section of the forum

Hey Tommy... I look forward to getting my pitch tool from you, but one question....
How do I pitch my prop to run as fast as you ?

I tell you what somebody should come up with... the prop TOOLS to bend the props. That would be nice, and I would guess, would sell pretty nice.
Too many damaged props from monkey wrenches out there!!!

Mine was made of aluminum, and had wide 2" jaws that fit the curve on the props. It had a long handle on it.

It lasted a few years. It was around 2" thick on top and bottom. It finally gave way, after many bends.
