    Question Anyone seen this kind of funky impeller pitch?

    Picked up this used impeller, came with a very funky trailing edge pitch, never seen something like this.

    Did someone fubar this or is this some magic pitch

    Fullboggie told me thats an old trick they used to use on the GPR's. Never heard of it being used on anything newer.

    That's referred to as a "kick". In certain instances it will help with holeshot cavitation or blowout. I've done it to a couple to drop peak rpm and keep the low and mid right where it was.
