Yes in the past they had a problem with tubes ripping off, OK now. That's why many go for the hard nose.
why would people choose a hard nose if
its so prone to stuffing?? doesnt make sense.. and why would a hard nose stuff more, they tend to cut through better and are usually a feature of most ribs that have problems with stuffing... please dont say its to do with the forward bouyancy of the tubes cause that will start the old hard boat v rib debate...
besides there is natural bouyancy in a hard nose due to the internal space and air inside. the 2 psi pressure of a tube has little difference to a hard sealed rp formation.
i have to challenge you simon, im not a scorpion owner so not biased, whats confusing me is that your opinion seems to be different to 99.99% of ribnet population, rib magazine, motorboats monthly every other publication that has ever been in a scorpion and even scorpions major competition. I am not saying your wrong, i am open to all opinions,experiences but could you please justify your comments, how do you know all this about scorpions?? why do your feel your right? i will ask graham tommorrow about the screens when i pay a visit to the yard, maybe he will have a theory
