    Smile VX plate with Jim's mod

    I finally tried my plate yesterday. Had the chance to tried it both on glass water and chop.
    Well, I like it A LOT!!!!! Waouh!
    Definitely night & day compared with the stock plate.
    The ski is much much faster now!!
    Besides slight porposing (will try using the shims included), handling is really good (though the ski feels a bit loose).
    Haven't GPS'd my top speed yet, but with stock plate I was running a consistent 76.4 (77.1 once) so I guess I'm pretty close to 79/80 mph.
    Thanks Jim!! I REALLY like this plate!!

    Glad you are happy with the plate Mr. Gomes, Yes the shims i supplied add to the back and that will get rid of the little porpoise you have, On speed with gps you should see an average of 4 mph. gain over the stock plate. Thank you, Jim

    Wow 4mph gain average that's impressive. Is this really what people are seeing on similarly modded skis to this?!

    If that's true I would not see any reason why everyone should not have one!

    Anyone else have one fitted with gps test results?

    you get a 3 mph gain with a stock VX plate so there is no reason why you would not get a 4 mph gain with jims mods
