    stage 2 SHO prop?

    I recently finished my Fzs stage 2 SHO this past summer, except for the prop. Asking for opinions on what to run. From my searching around it seems most of the info for my stage 2 SHO, was from several years back, and it seems like back then everyone seem to like the Skat prop. Now here recently on newer models most guys are running a solas. I would also appreciate pitch suggestions. ski info is below.
    -r&d r3 tune 8850 rpm limit
    - average top speed I am getting is 79.6mph
    - rpm I am getting is usually bouncing between 8600 and 8700

    I guess maybe a better question to ask would be.. since my rpms are pretty good, would I still benefit any by running a aftermarket prop over my stock prop?

    Have you pitched your stock prop or is it untouched? I think at 8700 rpm you should be a little faster.

    no it's untouched, I am in Louisiana high humidity and hot, so that could be a factor in my mph, really would love to gain a couple mph.

    Best I can remember is with the 155mm pump the Skat was faster but the Solas had less cavitation. On the newer 160mm pump it is recommended to use a Solas
