    RXT-X prop help

    I need to decide which way to go with my prop. RDperformance 13/23 or the Riva 15/22, or add a mm or two to the stock prop. The stock prop feels good in most situations, but I would like to bring the rpm's down to 8000 or so. I am seeing 8100 to 8160 at 80 degree ambient. The boat will get the Riva wheel and cover with 50# injectors. I want to be sure to spend my money wisely.

    I'd like to know about the r/d prop as well.. what people think about it.

    It's not nearly talked about as much as the solas/SKAT impellers.

    T-X
    I have run both R & D 13/23 and the riva 15/22.
    In the winter with good air both props are on limiter with 83 nozzle. I ran a 15/23.5 this winter.

    I just got off the water and with 92 air and 5,100 ft RAD I ran the R and D with 83 nozzle and it was dead on. Ski would pull 8,000 rpm and creep to 8,040 and 8,060. The R and D has best holeshot over the Riva and flat out performs on the T-X IMO.

    Unfortunately, the R&D is $375. That's a bit too rich for my blood at this time. I'll just keep experimenting with my stock props.

    That's why I have 2 oem props and I'm pitching one for summer and one for winter. I want a better prop but not at these prices. Not right now anyways.
