Thread: GPR/SHO nozzle

food for thought. worth trying in my opinion.
If the GPR loses 1 mph using the SHO steering nozzle, will the GPR nozzle provide 1 mph for the SHO

I've done some research on it as a cheaper alternative to an R&D replacement nozzle for my GPR. The SHO nozzle is oval shaped 90hx86w whereas the stock GPR nozzle is 92mm round. They are the same length. Some think the SHO nozzle is taller than wide to help make the trim more effective on the long heavy ski. Most of the reviews I have read report no top speed loss on the GPR with it but a slight loss in acceleration and more loose feel to the steering. I tried having one bored to 92mm but the machine shop f'd it up by not centering the hole, so I picked up another one(luckily the're only $30). Just haven't gotten around to finding a different machinest. I hadn't thought about trying the modded nozzle on the SHO but maybe it's worth a shot if it will accelerate better and make the steering more responsive.
