How restrictive would the reverse chute be on a standard nozzle?

I am considering cutting most of mine off if it would be of benefit while i am saving/collecting parts for a diverter.

Or Does anyone have a stock nozzle for cheap that i could cut to try? i'd leave some of the chute left to have a little reverse. Kind of like an AT nozzle.

What say you?

Cut it off. (Saw'd Off !, lol) Reverse is over rated, and nearly useless with a rideplate anyway.

Mine doesn't drag, but I don't have a droop, either, just a diverter and rideplate.

Rideplate to reverse chute is nearly a foot on mine.

My panther is similar to what you have (chute only obviously lol) I sharpened the leading edges of the chute. On mine it sorda scoops up and makes a lil roost.  I obviously didn't really do it for any gains or anything, I was just messing around, after that and a couple other things I did notice slight improvements though.

You'd be surprised, my reverse works pretty good to be honest. I have a line on a stock one for cheap, so ill cut this one and see what happens

Steve at WOT your reverse bucket should be out of the water for the most part.  I have seen this with big cruisers with a go pro video not just on the faster boats.  Check into it before you kill your ability to have a reverse.

Use a leash on the go pro.   :thumbup:

I've watched mine at ~35 mph, and it is just out of the water. rear jump seats work good for that.

I could see with a droop, it would be closer, and maybe drag some.

Higher speeds less dragging? I don't know.

Think the idea is higher speed. More lift less drag

Oh. No I know the gate opens up all the way.

I was asking about the chute causing drag, but after seeing your pic and the one I got from Jim. It looks like mine "should" be out of the water.

But yes my gate opens all the way
