    Who likes the Skat 3 blade over a 4 blade?

    I am just wondering if there are any gains to be had? I lost my pump in the mail (13 days now) and I am just going to have to order a new pump, SS wear ring, Triple Bearing, ect.. I am also going to get a new prop...should I go with there 3 blade or 4 blade?? Pros and cons? I ran a 13/20R on my ski and had almost perfect rpms with my mods. Thanks for the help guys.

    Since you dont have any other mods go with a 4 blade.

    You do not make enough power to sling one of these 3 blades Glen and I have been working on.

    Here are all the Solas 4 blades for Sea Doo

    I would say a minimum of a Rotax Racing stage 3.

    So a Riva stage 2+ (thermo and hood additional) wouldn't have what it takes to spin one of these props (or would it just require some more pitch experimenting that hasn't been done yet?)

    For a GTX 4TEC, you cana use the Skat 16/21 3 blade. It is different than what is used on the RXP/RXT skis. It has very minor harmonics and is fine as long as you don't bump the HP & RPMs way up.
