    06 RXP215 stage1 - 3blade or 4blade impeller

    Hello from Greece!

    I'm glad to be member of this great community.


    I own a 06 rxp215 with 3" front air intake
    (Soon.. Riva intake grate, Riva opas block offs, metal washers, impeller?)

    I ski on salt and choppy water and i want hook up and acceleration. Now i'm running
    8180-8200 with full tank (stock impeller)


    What are the advantages and the desadvantages of installing the 3 blade skat trak and what of the 4 blade solas?

    What are the recomanded impellers for my stage 1 ? (skat and solas)

    Also what top speed (+ -) i'll see with the skat and what with the solas?

    4 blade= best for top speed but cavitates down low
    3 blade= acceleration monster but falls off up top

    Solas 14/19 would be a great prop for you

    it sounds like you need an RXT instead of an RXP - due ti the water conditions... Ron

    3 blade or 4 blade

    There is a skat 3 blade recommended for stage 1?

    How many mph is the loss of the top end? (skat vs solas)

    Thanks guys for the input..

    13/18 skat for a stage 1 & tweak it up if you run more than a stage 1 (14/18 for stage 1.5-2) till above a stage 2 (XS/riva IC, X charger, 4" air intake, etc..) then go 15/19 3 blade.. I found it to be not quite 1mph slower than the 14/19 solas on a stage 1. There is a big difference in acceleration using the 3 blade over the 4. For ocean 3 blade all the way!

    3mph difference? maybe stage 3 & above but not on a stage1 or 2.

    maestro... don't listen to these guys!

    They are lonely, pathetic souls who just happen to know what they speak of...

    Question RXP stage 1 3blade??

    Guys i just received a recommendation from the technical department of skat trak about my stage 1 impeller: 15/18 159/83-28 SD Swirl Super Pro, You will need a billet Nose Boot

    I saw all the types of 3blade that you recommand above .

    I'm comfused!!!

    I know that the solas 14/19R is a safe option. I just want to have an alternative option on a 3blade. But what is the right one??

    I dont care about 1 mph loss on top, if the difference in acceleration with the 3 blade is so much noticable and the hook up on chop much better.

    Does anyone knows about how much rpm with the 3 blade are?
