    I know Spud prefers cutting his don't know what gains there are to it. He has a pro-tec nozzle and shortens it to factory length.

    I prefer mine at the extended length. I seen a slightly faster speed and better turning. But the downside I personally found was it is harder to trim when running WOT.

    When you say trim at WOT are you talking about the changing the QSTS?

    Can you adjust it on a stock ski at WOT? or do you have aftermarket parts which allow you to do it?

    If it's safe to adjust at speed I'm gonna be mad, I've 55 hours on it and always let off the gas completely before changing the trim

    I can adjust mine at speed, sometimes it's difficult at WOT and you have to let off for a split second to take the pressure off. I usually have the bow trimmed down for the holeshot and then trim up as the ski planes out, never letting off.

    Wow, I could have used that technique so many times but was scared because of the owners manual. Thanks for the info

    I use the pro-tec 50mm. I haven't noticed any loss in speed from stock nozzle. It helps reduce the slide in jims plate in sharp turns. It also fixed the handlebar alignment problem my ski had with stock nozzle
