    1* Pump wedge question

    I have a 1* R&D pump wedge that i am going to install. It has a couple of arrows and "UP" stamped on the wedge. During installation of the wedge (as per arrows pointing up) it would tilt the rear of the nozzle downwards. I would have thought that the idea of the wedge was to tilt the rear of the nozzle up to lift the bow for more speed. This may sound like a dumb question but is having the thicker section up going to be correct?

    Wedge the reduction nozzle up. You are correct. I'm looking at a wedge now and see your delema. Sorry never noticed the arrow before.

    So the tech guy at R&D says thick side up for CC racing for better handling, and thick side down for more top end speed.
