    Riva OPAS Blockoff RXT Handling?

    I've heard reports that the RXT's don't handle that great @ all with the Riva OPAS Blocked off...In a week or so i will be putting them on with the sponsons and the wedge and skegs and all that..I have these as a temporary emasure until my RE blockoffs come in. I was jsut wondering though, is the handling really bad when you take the OPAS off and put the Riva blockoff plates on?

    I think the handling is just as good as with the opas but requires more rider involvement. For example if you want to turn hard you need to concentrate your body weight over the back of the ski. If you want to goof off and spin out try the same turn but put your body weight towards the front. I don't know how the skegs will effect it but i would assume they would have a positive effect on handling.

    with the opas my gtx handles good i'm leaving mine on i think it helps turning but my ski is onlly going 2 run 69-70 mph
    with the riva block off plates the word is tracking a stright line is harder
    in heavy surf and 73+ r&e block off is the way 2 go

    Without the OPAS it's amazing how much body posturing actually affects handling. If you're into a little more of a work out it's tons more fun.
