    R&D vs JIMS plate on stock ski

    OK, so I know an out-of-the-box R&D rideplate will yield 2-3mph, and the JIMS plate will yield around 5mph, and the JIMS plate is also made to take advantage of a fast ski. Question: What is the aproximate difference in MPH of the R&D ride plate & the JIMS ride plate on a stock ski?

    Jim's plate handles alot better first of all. I tested back to back with a stock plate vs. Jim's plate and saw 4.7mph gain! Jim's plate is probably
    2 - 3 mph faster(average) with better handling. Its fast!

    Thanks Woody...I was reading the l-o-n-g thread posted back in '08 from SPUD on rideplates & saw where JIMS plate has evolved--from what I can gather --to best/fastest overall rideplate there is.

    Thanks for the quick response.....
