I have not tried either one of these pumps ^however I have a Maxx setback 148 in my 730cc freak setup for surf with a skat 7/14 cutback 5mm and it performs very very well. I’m sure the Torrent would be awesome too.anyone ever run the solas 148 and a torrent 148????
Brian told me the same thing the other day. Non set back 148 is like paying the price but not getting the proper performance. I ordered a setback 148 torrent for my reaper.I did talk to torrent and they said “We no longer manufacture non set backs. The reason being is they are the same cost of manufacture, and the set back performs better in all applications. Surf and flat-water, by staying in the water longer and holding more water in the pump tunnel. Our proprietary pump design is superior in its all Stainless construction, for longevity and performance.”
