Handeling with Pump extension.
I think this subject may hev been sort of covered before but I want to be more specific.
How does the extension effect the handling of the ski in the corners as in CC bouys???
I know it gives much better hookup but does it turn harder, softer more control or what any feedback from people running it on stock plate RXP.
Thanks in advance R88

It improve the handling because the turning nozzle is farther out in turns you should be carful because if turns instantly when you had a sharp turn. That’s with RIVA sponsons

IMO it did not turn as sharp after installing the pump extension but I also had to remove the OPAS at the same time so that may have also been a contributing factor. Because of this issue I just installed Riva sponsons but can't test til spring.

My ski did does not turn as sharp either..It does handle the chop 110% better than it ever has..But as far as cornering it doesnt turn any sharper as it did before the extention was added..I also have the Riva sponsons too..

I am sorry to say that Riva sponsons will make it turn worse !!!!! I use them for paper weights, stock are 100 % better for turning

and yes if you have been used to turn with OPAS on , you will have to re learn the turing without them as OPAS helps a lot in turning
