    I had the same problem. Couldn't find any prices for the HS on the web. I couldn't even find a part number in the micro fich. You'll have to do some calling to dealers.

    Call Kevin Turner. Got back to me super quick.
    His price last spring was better than that, even for a high skew. I don't know if it's changed. 636-797-2628

    Just curious if your going to use the standard impeller, why not just have yours rebuilt and add a SS liner. It's much cheaper. I think it's Greatland welding in anch that rebuilds them. Or it could be another, im not familiar with that area but I know someone in Anch. rebuilds them.

    Default Greatland Welding

    I think Greatland is out in the Valley. I was on the phone with them last week, they said $350 for the wear ring, and $350 to rebuild your current impeller, not to bad.

    Im having greatland put in the ss liner but got a one new ss impeller for 350 and the second one for 325. Gary at greatland is a great person but for the cost I went with two new ones and Ill have him do the SS liner

    Greatland is great....Gary is as honest as they come...he's done a handful of rebuilds for me....take in one of your new impellers and leave it with them, I've had 4 liners done and they all end up with a touch more clearance...a SS wear ring isn't going to make you happy if you end up with a .050" gap when you drop in a new impeller.....

    All mine were done at the same time as an impeller rebuild and they've always come back nice and tight...the rebuilt impeller must have always been built up just a fuzz over the stock diameter....

    Several friends have work done at greatland and all were pleased...

    I hope I am not hijacking the thread, but have you guys ever had to deal with warranty issues after upgrading the impeller or the sleeve? I bought the boat off the floor last year and got six years on the opti. So i am a little nervous doing any work? Thanks

    I don't know for sure but I can't imagine anyone giving a warranty on the impeller/sleeve...if so, I'd sure like in on that deal ....i'd run your boat just the way it is, when you notice a loss in performance great enough to make you unhappy just have the impeller rebuilt..if the liner is worn too much have the SS insert put in too....you should get at least one impeller rebuild in before you have to worry about your liner, depending on the type of water you run..

    Plan on taking one of the impellers in when I have the ss ring put in. For anyone who hasnt done work done by greatland like T said I have had them work on three of my past boats they are fair when it comes to pricing and do great work

    Did you price any through Riddle? He's set up a deal there and is having they dynamically balanced now... seems to give even a bit more performance out of them. Also, I cant say enough about the hi-skew advantages when it comes to load lifting and hole shot thrust... I probably have a couple standard pitched ones laying around if anyone is looking for that route let me know and I'll do some digging.
