    Solas or.............

    I think my prop may be beyond its best (lost a couple of MPH and seems to cavitate at slow speeds) and am considering my options for a potential replacement

    My ski is a 2003 F12X, totally stock and I mostly ride lake but do use it for wavejumping occasionally

    I have heard of Solas and Skat Trak but dont know their advantages/disadvantages or if there is any other/better brands

    Thanks in advance

    I too would like to know... any one that has tested both props on a stock boat...

    Will the honda always cavitate coming outta the hole? From a 10 punch on it's knarly, but romping on it coming outta turns or trying to get some pop off a wake is.... needs improvement!

    I reckoned that may be the best bet

    Any idea where is the best place to get one?

    ParkerYamaha.com did have the best price on both the Solas Impeller and the Solas intake grate. They are a great combo, no real speed increase but acceleration and hookup are improved.

    I am gonna change the Prop in the winter but will order the Solas 17/29 as that is the one everyone recommends

    I hadnt considered the ride plate as I didnt realise that Solas made one for the Hondas

    I looked at Parkery Yamahas website but couldnt see a Solas for the Honda - am I looking in the wrong place?

    I recall reading somewhere that aftermarket intake grates were breaking up (causing lots of damage) but I think it was R+D - can anyone confirm this? I assume the Solas does not suffer from this?

    It looks like Solas has quit making intake grates for Honda. I am glad I got mine when I did. I will keep looking.
