What are you running these on and with what power ?

You will probably like the 1.61s better, major torque multiplier
which gives you incredable midrange acceleration where 90%
of your boating is done anyways. And with todays props you can still carry the top end.

Locally Nauti kitty ( Parnell ) changed his 41' Saber which is the old apache from 1.5s to 1.61s runs touch over 100 mph.

Next Curtis Ganos chaged his 38' top gun to 1.61s to after riding in Parnell's. Curtis runs right there to like 98 ish

Anyway's something to think about and mine are 1.61s

I have 1.61's on my Top Gun as well. Does anyone have a #6 gimble ring laying around that they want to part with. The paint is peeling a little bit on one of mine around the high-stress areas. I'd like to get my hands on one now so if a problem arises I'll have it already and minimize down-time
