    i have the regular opas block offs and i plan to get a set of the pro series ones. mainly for the porpoising issue but i am also curious to see how they affect handeling.

    Only if you suffer from porpoising. It helps a little with that.

    I'm interested in this one too. I have then in a box at the house, but haven't put them on yet. Do they scrub speed? Change cornering? Help in the chop?

    Yep! Worth every penny!

    I didn't notice any speed loss with my setup. I probably gained speed because I wasn't porpoising so bad.

    What exactly is porpoising? The last time I was on the lake it was almost glassy, just a slight roll of waves comming from about the 10 o'clock position (they were so small I couldn't see them until I stopped)

    anywho I was running at WOT 8150rpms and the front of the ski was bobbing up and down. I wasn't really comming unhooked, but this is something I'd never experienced and it didn't make me feel real confident in the safety of going as fast as I was.

    that bobbing up and down is porpoising.

    Definitely helped with the porpoising and seems like it wanders less in the rough with a slight improvement cornering. Overall, worth it to me.
