    Everything I've read and from what the owner of Shredmaster rideplates said, toploaders are only going to help you in really rough water and in fact they can slow you down a few MPH when you use them on smooth water. In rough water they are needed to keep the pump loaded but in smooth water they only create more drag.

    ok, Thanks for the information. your reply is going to make me test both the Riva and Stock grates within a couple of days of each other. I'm just not going to silicone the grates and see what my speeds are. I will post the results ASAP. I don't want anyone to blow $200.00 if they don't need to
