    15/22r prop concerns

    The fact that the prop might not be exactly what we expected I am wondering a few things.

    The first is, and I am sure we should see some feed back soon, did anyone see a gain from a modified 15/20 to the 15/22?

    Also if one want to be sure it is what is supposed to be is there anyone on the East Cost, preferrably Virginia and northward (shipping times) that is modifying them to a truer 15/22?

    Thanks
    Scott

    Go with Eric at Speedfreak or Carl at Island Racing. Both do very good work. Both are in New York.

    I'm confused...the post is vague to me, are we talking the P-X or T-X application? And as far as not meeting expectations, is this an inference or has someone actually got one, installed it, and stated disappointment? I'm also told that this prop needs the reduction nozzle to see its advertised gains - is that being done with this set up?

    Many people are just starting to get these impellers so i'm sure we'll read a lot of input soon. Beachbum has already run his in his X model and it was 1 mph faster than his pitched up stock impeller.

    A member posted that he purchased 3 15/22's and none were the same.. we have also learned that these props aren't from a factory mold but a factory 15/20 tweaked by someone. It makes me want to check my prop for accurasy or blems... so how do you do that... I can check the bends at the top and bottom, but what about the rest of it?

    You really need an impeller pitch gauge but measuring at key points along the blade edge can check one blade against the other
