    Speed or acceleration

    I bought a 25 drag 3. It should arrive tomorrow and I am a bit excited. Itís been the usual long winter.

    I will be going for acceleration to start the season. Usually I prop tall but seldom actually use the potential. Too much traffic and waves.

    The holeshot is always a guaranteed smile on your face and alot of fun for anyone you may take for a ride, but there's always that point at the end of the day where the lake empties out and you'd rather be flying on a pocket of air..........

    I like the G forces of acceleration. Seems like there's always too many boats to string it out. Even when it looks clear the occasional roller from a wake boat may continue across the lake.

    Both?
    I drive a lot of fast cars that accelerate like crazy, so I get that out of my system! When I am in the boat I like to walk the V and go for some speed.

    Any pics of the boat yet or???
    And yea both speed and acceleration.
    Like he said nothing like a good hole shot...but then airing it, out pushing it, tapping the trim etc for the last little bit.
    If talking about your own rig.
    Granted mine isn't small so don't want flat water it's alot more fun in rough water.
    But even when I had my 19' Lazer it was more fun with a bit of chop..but would fly on flat water..damn I miss that boat
    Sometimes I talk to myself...then we both just laugh and laugh

    I think the new prop should go mid 80s and accelerate hard
