I should have done a poll. This truly is a debate. Not sure how to do a poll though.

Pwan , what size are those tips and where did you get the billet rear vents??

Seems like 5 inch may be the legth, Im' still storn between angle and straight. KEEP THE PICS COMING GUYS!!!!!!!!

Call me weird, but I like the straights w/ flappers. I don't trust the internal flapper.

BGIII, that's a good point. Anybody have any problems with water getting through to the motor without the external flapper????

Straight tips only for me. Had the long angled tips before and they were ugly. i run eddie marine short tips and no flappers at all.. No water problems. Even changed my dads, he had long angled ones on his baja. Put short straight ones on his too.To me angled tips on a boat is like putting 25" rims on a chevette... its just ghetto

straight tips i tihnk personaly go better with the old school offshores(cigarette etc.), while the angled tips go better with the west coast style (nordic etc.)
