    NEW WORX FZR Sponson 2013 re-design

    Has anyone tried these?

    Worx is offering this FZR/S Sponson
    re-design for 2013. Looks like quite
    different geometry PLUS the backing
    plates offer an up or down option.

    Thx

    dont think any sponson out there is more aggressive than the WORX.other sponsons are shorter and with more adjustability because even though you can put them on a CC ski they are marketed mainly for the recreational rider.id only put WORX on a CC ski they are too long for recreational use and will make bow hunt in the chop all the way down.

    They look like they are more adjustable than the previous ones. I have the older version on my '09 as far up as they go. I don't have bow hunt with them in chop. Honestly, the MACC Sponsons look like they are made better and easier to adjust, and I think the price is about the same. Worx are made from some kind of plastic/teflon, and I believe the MACC sponsons are aluminum

    Damn, didn't realize Maccs were so much more. Haven't really looked at the price because I already had the Worx when the Maccs came out

    A deep blade won't cause bow hunt, but adjusting the sponson too far forward will. I have my Macc sponsons all the way down & all the way back, & my ski is rock solid stable in the chop.

    Actually the R&D VXR Sponsons were specifically designed and tested for the VXR
    also. Lotta time and effort went into that project. They were not just 're-badged'
    FZR/S sponsons. And they work very very well. But, jmo for CC, the WORX VXR specific
    sponsons are the best. I have not tried Macc's, or Farthing's sponsons.
