    Impeller ?

    OK, so I was looking at my impeller and noticed a few nicks etc... Reading previous posts it seems that an aftermarket impeller is hard to turn without increasing the RPM's. Here is my question. Is there an impeller I can put on that will be an improvement over the stock without working on the motor??? Keep in mind that I'm on a lake in Montana at about 3300'. All I've done is fill the pump shoe, 1200 grate and Jim's plate.

    Thanks,

    What are you looking for out of a different prop?

    Are the nicks in your stocker hindering performance?

    Really, I couldn't tell. The thing is running great. I had to pull the back 4 bolts and remove the rear nozzle section to get a broken bolt fixed. That is when I looked over the prop and noticed a few dings. I figured this would be a good time to change it out while it's off but may wait until next season. A little better hole shot would be nice but like I said most threads I've read suggest it's tough to turn an aftermarket impeller with a stock motor at higher elevations.

    The stocker will be best for holeshot. The only other option is to have a 14/20 dynafly depitched but I have no experience with that. Someone else will have to chime in but I don't think it would be worth the cost.
