    That looks like the size wedge that belongs on my project! J/K... I think that would be a 4* wedge, but don't quote me on it... I have been known to be wrong once, a long time ago... Honestly, not sure, but if you choose not to use it, package it up with my other stuff and I will test it out for ya!

    Edit: If I calculate the difference between the height of the one side to the other side of the wedge to be about 10mm. That would make this a 4* wedge. So I think I may be correct on this one!

    If I did that, I would need to do it before you get your Pro in the water, then when you punch it and fall off the back I will simply keep going and beat ya! Unless of course you use the velcro gloves!!!

    Use some of your new Polaris gloves and put some new grips on the ski. Also make sure you use that UMI finger throttle so you can keep your grip on the handlebars. That is another upgrade I may do later if the parts show up for a good price. If all else fails, at least make sure someone gets video of you launching your ski and flapping like a flag in the wind when your hands hold and your body slides off!

    polaris only used 2 aluminum wedges and they were painted black,ones a 4 wedge the other a twisted wedge(junk).all the other factory 4 wedges were plastic.the 2,3,5,6 were bought seperately and not painted.

    Here's a short video of the PSI triple pipe,No Hydroturf, and the trim rod had come lose. Watch at the very beginning,My feet slip which put me into a full Flag waving,Superman. Took a few seconds to position so I could let off the throttle and still hang on.
