    I have not, but will say if you dont have RE blockoffs, the 2.5 WILL make the ski porpoise bad.

    I have the 2.5, but it's on my RXT. I think getting as much as possible of my cruise ship's hull out of the water, the better...

    I will be trying the R&D 2.5degree this summer against the Riva 2degree. That will be 3 months away though, freaking winter.

    Question on the 2.0 wedge

    My ski has the Riva intake grate. I have just purchased the 14/19R. I was thinking of installing the 2.0 wedge at the same time. I was just worried about porposing? Will I need to put the Opas blockoffs of some sort on. Should I hold off on the wedge? I have read some people dont like the way the ski handles after the wedge is put on without the blockoffs.... I guess I could install and test and see what how it reacts....

    i'd put it on and see. if you don't like it you can always sell it here. you can get close to what you paid for it since they don't really loose too much value.

    On the RXT the 2.0 wedge kicks asss. Did a friend of mines along with the Riva grate. Noticeable upgrade. Well worth the bread. On the RXP I have a 2 and love it. But I very rarely ride glass so it helps tremendously. When I`m tired I just trim up and take it easy in the rough. And if you ain`t getting air,,,you just ain`t getting.
