    Who knows about ride plate angles for R-Pot Ride Plates?

    Just looking for some information about the best way to set up an R-Pot ride plate. Anyone run any back to back tests?

    Thank you!

    Also wondering if anyone knew how many different designs R-Pot had for their GPR rideplates.

    That's the two plates they made. I have both as well, but haven't spent much time with either one. That long plate is a great offshore plate, as it keeps the bow even, but doesn't get too effected by cross-hatch waves and other ugliness.

    The other plate is a copy of the R&D plate. Adjust it accordingly. Get the front of it, just above the shoe, and the back around .9" and go from there.

    I'm hoping the R-Pot is a little better quality casting. When i was at WFO's shop he showed me 3 different Shreds that were completely diffeent from each outher and none bolted up. I fix too much poor quality shit as it is and would never take on something that bad without assholing out on the owner.

    Sure. The Rpots are all carbon fiber, and you have to "build" the spacers. They were not ever designed for a setback, but I'm sure can work.
