The model dependence of high L partial waves in nucleon-nucleon scattering for Tlab=400-1000 MeV is studied. Unlike at low energy, model predictions are not unique. This is due to the delta isobar, which plays a major role in determining high L inelasticities as well as real phase shifts. The differences between various model predictions are mainly due to the use of different delta propagators and delta vertex functions.
