    the aftermarket tabs are made from material other than plastic, to avoid any flex? also they are longer than stock to help combat the porposing problem. some companies claim to increase speed, while most people see a loss of speed. i have actually seen both myself. it just all depended on the type of water i was riding in. right now , i run the stock tabs with shims

    Aftermarket tabs are thicker and at a slightly different angle than the stockers.

    Shooter is the only one I know of that has tested the aftermarket cone with the HO pump. Ask him.
