    really it should be a yes or no type or response...yes, it worked for my setup I gained (x) amount of speed. Or, no it didn't work for my setup...here's what my setup is.

    Just my .02

    I guess this was a 2 part question. First part should have ben put in chit chat and second part should have been put in the performance section. My Error! My Intentions were to find out if it helped or not? I was NOT trying to Start some BS Like we have seen in the past. I am all for keeping this forum Professional and not a pi$$ing match for those who like that type of forum.

    I tried it on my ski with some other mods. The inline restrictor richened my ski too much. I can say it didn't overcompensate for it.

    Tommy I tried it as soon as I got home from bug, well I will sayit ran .3 faster without the nose cone then I got to loosen the boat up a little by removing some washers and gained another .3 with better water direction into the pump (IMO) which the boat did not have any buck so it did gain alittle and I think for sure it helps with the buck.

    test

    I did TWO back to back test on the same ski with and w/o the nose cone. The ski gained 10-20 rpm,s and some runs were the same speed and two runs were .1 tenth faster. I did not feel the ski handled any better or worse at all. IMO There is no diffrence with or w/o nose cone. This information is based on our current set up on my ski. Others might find different results on there ski. Please post if you have any results. Thanks
