    I like mine (original style--not CC version). However, they are a bit looser than OEM's.

    I would say it depends on what you're looking for as there are some brands that are much more aggressive than other.

    I've been thinking about trying some adjustable ones.

    I run them and they are definitely faster than stock. I think I got about a .5-.7 gain but can;t remember exactly. They are quite a bit looser but I like the way they make the ski track in rougher water. IMO for my riding conditions, the SHO handles better loosened up a bit. I run the JD speed sponsons and Jim''s modded stock ride plate unshimmed when I run the rivers and lakes around me.

    If I want to run a course with some buddies I will shim down the back of my ride plate and switch to a set of R&D sponsons.

    Yep that's exactly how mine look. Powdercoating or anodizing them black would look awesome. I'm going to do the same thing at some point.

    i wouldnt powdercoat them, every rideplate, intake grate, steering nozzle ive had on my ski that was factory powdercoated always ended up peeling off or partly peeling wich looks worse.

    those sponsons are clear anodized, youd have to stripp em and re anodize them black.

    +1, If it were me and I really wanted them black I would have them re anodised black, powder coating is not really that great.

    I ran a set last year...they loosen up the ski in high speed corners and let you drift through your turn...I took them off because we ride creeks pretty fast and I dont like mud on my ski....They seem to be pefect for a drag racer or rec rider that dosnt want their ski to dig in too hard...they are solid billet and the ultimate in strength. I run the R&D sponsons now set in middle position. fyi
