Pitch advice for RXT with X S/C
Got out on the water with the new mods for the first time yesterday - all went well and it definitely feels like there is more power there
On take-off the revs can jump right up to 8150 almost instantly, and although it was too choppy to max the ski out im fairly sure on the top end it would be in the limiter.
Does anyone have any pitch advice for an RXT with the mods listed in my sig?
Thanks for reading

Usually guys go with a 14/19 first then as mods build up move to a 15/20 and then 15/22. That's what I did on my RXT.

Whats the stock props pitch?
Could we re-pitch that to take the rpm down some? I've seen the guide about on here somewhere, but im not sure about the amount of pitch that its capable of accepting?

Thanks for your help
To anyone that has repitched the stock/knows about it, any guidance on how much to add? Or if its significantly worse than a new impeller?

I don't think you can bend a stock prop enough
to get you where you want to be.
You might be able to pull a 14/19.. depending on altitude, temp, etc.
A 13/18 may also be a place to start as well.
Either way, you will prob have to do some pitch "tuning"
once you get it going. You don't want to ride on the rev limiter
very much at all. You will do a lot of damage that's far pricier than
