    OEM Steering Nozzle vs.........

    Which steering nozzle is the fastest for top speed only. I don't care about turning, 2 up riding, etc. I want to know which is the fastest in a straight line. There a few different brands out here and then the plastic OEM one. Lets compare and contrast!!!! Thanks...

    Most of us use the stock steering nozzle.RX951 had good luck with an aftermarket one.Might ask him.

    I use an R&D nozzle. I seen a .7 gain with it vs. the plastic stocker. Back to back test on my ski. Unported 12R
    Due to the extended length, its a little harder to trim vs. the OEM nozzle.
    The aftermarket ones are stronger also.

    Protec

    Im using a protec one right now but I didnt get to do any back to back testing to see if it is faster or not. I understand it is better in the long run to go with aftermarket just wandering about results...

    I don't think you are going to find a nozzle that is 'faster'. Just my opinion. It's all in the exit nozzle not the steering.

    I did not get any more speed out of my R&D nozzle on my stock 12r. More reliable for sure.

    All my spped runs have been done with the Pro-Tec +12mm nozzle. I do this for the same reason I run an aftermarket grate "Safety" now as far as speed goes Spud ran his unported 1200 to 77.8 on a Pro-Tec nozzle I will that speak for itself.

    same here, but I do think the steering is ultra sensitive...
