    Solas vs stock prop

    Someone teach me about props and pitchs.
    I felt like my stock prop ski went faster than my 13/18 prop.

    Best i've gotten at 8700rpms was 80mph on GPS, but when I was under 8500rpms on stock prop I was able to clock 82mph easily.
    I will however say, the acceleration feels amazing.

    Need more information. Mods ect. Sounds like at 8700 you're on the limiter.

    It sounds like itís pitched for acceleration and not top speed. Like changing around the gearing on a car. You accelerate faster but hit the rev limiter sooner. More torque but less top end.

    Youíll be needing a 13/20 Iíd think.

    The Solas SVHO impellers are night and day better than stock, both in acceleration and top speed. Sounds like you are on the limiter with the 13/18. Pitch it up to a 13/20
