    Repitch Solas or the new Solas from Riva

    I'm confused on what to go with. I have everything Riva states as a Stage 2 except the prop. My question is should i repitch my Solas with PPG or should i get that new 15/19 Solas prop thats part of the Stage 2 kit? Please let me know what you think.

    If you are thinking of getting your prop repitched, I would have Dave at Impros do it. He's the best in the business and has the equipment to do it right the first time. The only problem with repitching a stock prop is the stainless has a "memory" and if you try and bend the prop too much...as in what's needed for a Stage 2 motor, the pitch may not "hold" true after some use. If you decide on a new prop. I can get you a Riva 15/20 for a great price. They are listed on our website.

    I have talked to people that have tested the new Solas 15/20 and it kills your RPM's.

    If you want a stock repitched prop Dave at Impros is your man.

    If you want a Solas that will rip your arms off with the acceleration then PPG has the "magic" pitch for that!

    I'm running a PPG pitched Solas with insane accel and 77+ mph on top end.
