    Here's what Solas says about the X-Prop's:

    X-prop - High Speed & Ultimate Performance
    The SOLAS X prop qives you the most powerful propulsion in the water from an advanced design that incorporates a high compression hub and cambered blades. Enthusiasts looking for speed and acceleration from the novice to the professional, will be satisfied using this impeller. You can trust the harsh field testing of he X prop by Team SOLAS.

    Here's what I say about XO props...

    They are the best all-around prop, combined with a an R&D 85/88 nozzle set. Holeshot is better, and equal top-end compared to the stocker. The nozzles give you much better steering control of the ski too.

    I'd at least get one fixed by Impros to keep.

    no need to use red loctite on props, if you don't get it all cleaned off or forget to heat up the prop's snout before taking the prop off you "can" run the risk of stripping threads. Use Anti-seize compound, and torque to proper specs
