re: Work sharp - TheLSUriot
If all you are worried about is your EDC pocket knife, then a stone is fine. But if you plan to sharpen your pocket knife, your father's/son's pocket knife, your entire kitchen, your neighbor's kitchen, etc...then get the worksharp. I asked for a ken onion edition last Christmas and highly recommen...

re: Gif of the sun setting on Mars - TheLSUriot
Mars is roughly a third the size of Earth. In your example Earth is the basketball; Mars is the baseball. Mars rotates around 850 km/h. Earth rotates around 1600 km/h. ...

re: Space Shuttle was a colossal waste of money - TheLSUriot
Ace, You are absolutely correct, Enterprise (OV-101) was nothing more that a test vehicle that ended up at the Smithsonian in '85. Was having lunch at my desk as I typed that and didn't mean to imply anything contrary. Columbia was the first flight worthy shuttle and Discovery was to be the first s...

re: Space Shuttle was a colossal waste of money - TheLSUriot
I almost wasted part of my lunch break to explain things to a gnome. Rather, I will simply state that for anyone who actually feels the shuttle program was a waste or somehow a mistake should take the time to educate themselves on the history, particularly early history, and changes in government/mi...

re: If Trump wins will you take the plunge and start your own business? - TheLSUriot
Have been seriously considering but extremely hesitant due to a drastic increase in government intervention into that marketplace immediately following Obama’s reelection. It has been insane to observe what has happened to small businesses. So many have simply closed or sold out to larger entities. ...

re: Congressional black caucus upset with Loretta lynch and DOJ - TheLSUriot
I listened to Hannity last night for a while. He is absolutely correct in this analysis. While Geraldo sounded like an blubber idiot at times trying to make his counterpoint. The biggest take away for me was how truly moved I was by Mayor Giuliani's passion for doing the right thing to save lives an...

re: Questions on my Xpress H22 setup - TheLSUriot
You got me, it came from a website. This is the first powertech of its kind I have seen up close. I thought it has an aggressive look to it didn't question what I read. I had calculated between 14-16% slip as well. The load on that run was full tank, 2 grown men, fishing gear, cooler loaded down...

re: Questions on my Xpress H22 setup - TheLSUriot
Good point about the speedo. The analog gauge is crap. Sometimes it works other times it gets stuck at various speeds. Not very sensitive at all so it gets ignored. Already looking to see what else I could put in that spot. I go by what the Helix 9 GPS is telling me. My mistake, I misread what yo...

[quote]my buddy's h22 with w150 and no JP did 50-51 [/quote]That makes me feel better. Guy I bought it from said it topped out at 59; he must have misspoke and meant to say 49. You made a good point about a 4 blade lifting the rear and flatting the ride. That should keep the wife happy. Based on ...

re: Questions on my Xpress H22 setup - TheLSUriot
I know I threw a lot out there. Thanks for the input to get me started. Is 52 mph respectable for a 150 on a H22? The set back will remain as-is but that prop was a big question mark. Seemed like something thrown on at the factory/dealership. Would probably avoid the trophy so as to not deal with...

Questions on my Xpress H22 setup - TheLSUriot
Learn me what I need to know, oh wise OB. I picked up a 2013 H22 over the weekend. F150LA with only 60 hrs and a OFX3R21PCL200 Powertech prop on it. From that code, I gather it’s a 21 pitch 3 blade but can’t find it listed on their website. 6” hydro-jacker with the mounting plates for a Talon set...
