    15F R&D Plate Questions

    My friend put the R&D plate on his 15F and when I looked at it today I thought that it looked like it might be hanging too low. I ran my finger across it and it seemed like I was able to feel a tiny bit of edge that might be causing drag. Take a look at the pic and let me know what you think. Also, he installed a 2 degree wedge with the plate. Could that possibly creating too much lift? I compared the stock plate to the R&D plate and it was night and day. The R&D plate looks like it gives a ton of lift. Let me know what you think about that combo. He no longer can use his reverse bucket cause the wedge moved the nozzle out far enough that the bucket couldn't go down. As of now, it has been removed.

    Take the wedge off, with the plate it will porpoise, the plate creates plenty of lift, I actually had to shim the plate down with SS washers so it wouldnt bounce riding 2 up with just the plate.............JMHO......


    Mine was the same way, it hung down like a MM , I took a belt sander to it to smooth it out.............

    Thanks! I'll have him remove it. But I don't ever remember him having any porpoise with this setup last year.

    My plate used to fit perfectly. I had both wedges 1 and 2 degree. Neither did anything for speed. I miss that ski. It was so fun to wave jump with.
