    I don't know how much difference in performance there is between droops. I was going to get an Aggressor droop, but we're back ordered.... ended up with an American Turbine droop....it was ok, not near the quality finish as the Aggressor though, I'll be taking it off smoothing it and repowdering it here soon. I rather have gotten an aggressor if they were available

    I don't know the performance difference either Tony, but I did do a little bit of research and I did notice that droops are built with varying degree's and lengths. Might not be a big deal if a diverter is used but if it's a regular or a race nozzle it might make more of a difference.

    (edit) I've also read a few idea's or theory's about the divider's in some droops, some have them, some don't, some are vertical, some are horizontal, there has to be reasons other than just to be different.

    My choice of droop was made solely on cost and I bought it from Tom at Jet Boat Performance.

    I bought mine from Eddie Marine and cut the divider out of it.They sell them fairly cheap.

    Duane at HTP sells a snoot also, you might want to give him a call and see what he thinks about using one on your boat
