    I've always run the old style berkley but with the place hth and the "snoot" wonder what seems to work the best for my next trial ??

    Tiger tested some on his old lake boat and came up with the HTH was the best and for the most part he is rigging everybodys gullwings out with them.

    the Snoot IMO is snake oil.

    i have had 2 and will have 1 up for sale soon off of the ole mans 19


    lots still run the long droop as well

    The Place Diverter Short Droop seems to be the best allaround! I have tried them all just ask! Info that was given to me stated. Full droop quickest, HTP snoot 4* was fastest and PD short split the difference between the two!
    I am running a HTP Snoot now with 0*pin and 7* up wedge I will post on my findings when I change to the short droop soon!

    I switched from a full droop to a snoot w 0* pin angle and 7* of wedge...i think the full droop left harder and without a hop...guess i'll follow the herd and try a half droop next!

    Did the older Berkeley droops have more than 7* pin?

    You will have to add 3 degrees more to the P.D. short. Their pin angle is 4 degrees. I think you will like it. Dont go by the seat of your pants. Look at the speedo.

    So how is the HTP snoot with 7* wedge doing for those that have it on the gullwings? Mine is installed just waiting for a day that is not so damn hot to go test.
