    Scott- i've never ran anything but a droop on a tx19.Just late week bought a snoot- may help my boat may not.I'll have to take it for a blast to find out! So at this point i'd say get ya a droop-$225? vs. $500+...

    Actual testing on a Warrior tunnel. Place Divertor half droop was 5 mph faster than an original Berkeley full droop. Straight snoot with 4 degree pin angle was a tenth of a second quicker for 660 ' but same et and mph in qtr mile. I am running the half drop now as the boat turns and handles much better. All these tests were performed on the same day and with identical nozzle angles. Increasing or decreaseing nozzle angle showed no improvement. Planning the same test on a Performer as soon as water warms up a little. I know y'all are talking singers but hope this info helps. I have 2 Berkeley drops. 1 polished and 1 painted. 150$ each.
