StingRay™ XRIII Hydrofoil Stabilizers™ for Boat Motors
did not need product
I have the Sting Ray XR3, it did install like the directions stated, OK. On my Triton TR 19 OptiMax 150HP, hole shot in 12 seconds. With the StringRayXR3 I can punch out at 5 seconds. Is it worth $250 dollars for 6 to 8 seconds, I dont thiks so. If the fish I am after leave town in the 8 second delay so be it. If your boat does labor on a hole shot I mean more then15 to 25 seconds then it might be worth it. That is my 2 cents worth I hope this helps. Anyone need a StringRay ZR3 half price, Buffaloman

StingRay XPRIII Hydrofoil Stabilizers
This is the second stabilizer I have purchased for my boat. It is a 150 HP Champion and has always been a bit diffulcult to get on plane. The stabilizer more than compensates for this and makes fishing, and watersports (ie tubing, kneeboarding, sking) much more fun. I reccommend using the supplied bolts for attaching the stabilizer, even though it attaches very well without, Neglecting to do that the first time is why I ended up buying a second one. Still, I believe it is well worth it!

I recently purchased the StingRay XprIII hydrofoil for my Triton bass boat. I have to admit I was pretty disappointed. The logic is smart ,but the mounting design is flawed. After mounting to my motor there was a lot of play and several spaces at mounting positions. I never tried it on the water because of the questionable mounting flaws. Instead of losing $150 I'm just going to ship it back.

Hello, I have recently purchased XR III and installed it on my Rinker's Bravo three drive (inboard). After few days of testing, it looks OK and do the right thing, as explained in the brochure. The only thing is that it is not fit on my drive as explained on the papers, my Zn-protector is mounted more inboard and cannot be seated on the place designed by Sting Ray. However, I have fix it on my drive using 2 suplied bolts and it looks OK now.
