    New Solas Impeller Being Developed

    Oceanside Bill and I have been in direct contact with Roger Tsai from Solas. He is the manager of Reasearch and Development. He is working on a Dynafly with a higher pitch. I'm not sure what root angle they are looking at but I think it will be a 15/22 or something close. It sounds like they will have one soon. This will be good news for the Big Bore GPR community. I know a lot of people were looking at VX110 impellers and all the BS it takes to make them work.

    They also have intake grates that use a much better quality casting method than current aftermarket grates.

    Of all my stops at World Finals this was the best. Solas was very receptive to what we were telling them.

    Rogers email is [email protected]


    Hello, Jim

    We will develop higher pitch YG Dynafly soon. And about SRX800 intake grate, I think we will make some prototype in a few days.

    Regards,

    Increased root angle processes water better and this will be able to be pitched higher than a 14/20 can currently go.

    Would this be a good prop for the GPRXP conversion then?

    I believe it will, but there is much debate as to what will work best here. I know Mark and Joe are working on this issue as well, with a different approach. We will have to wait for some to be delivered and then start the tweaking process to see what the true benefits to the various platforms will be.

    Won't the vx110 prop work on the hybrids? I know they're tall enough! Dave had a few in his shop I saw that were getting re worked.

    This should do the same thing without the $500 price tag.
    The problem with the VX props is the cost to modify them to fit the GPR platform, then you are depitching it work. If I can buy something that works out of the box for half the cost it's a no brainer.
