sponsons or skegs
sponsons or skegs or both?
Which will give me the best handling on a RXT, I already have a wedge and intake grate and have my opas blocked up.

For an RXT running thru the chop of Lake Lanier you definately will enjoy having the skegs.
Sponsons would put the icing on the cake.

Im assuming that since u have block ups, u still have a little functionality from the OPAS to turn the couch. I think unless your doing close course, the oem sponsans will be fine. The skegs would probably be a better bet for tracking/handling.
I believe most of the RXTS I've seen doing endurance use the OEM sponsans.
Can anyone here give feed back on skegs for RXT??

Loc Tite Aquamarine Epxoy. I tell you exactly what to get (complete with pic) on the instruction sheet.
Shibby put Skegs on his RXT so he'll be able to give you some more input.

I can help you out on this as I have a set of skegs on my RXT. The best thing to do would be find another lake to ride on cause that SOB is rough on the weekends! My set-up is like yours, blocked up OPAS and Riva grate and I highly recommend the skegs, they improve the rough water ride and handling dramatically. I spent most of last summer with skegs only and only got to ride with the grate maybe 12 hours but decided that I liked the ski better with skegs and without the grate and suggest that after you ride a couple of times with skegs and grate that you remove the grate and really feel what the skegs can do for you. The skegs are lifting the ski and smoothing out the ride but the grate is pulling it down. It will corner like it's on rails with the skegs so go slow and aclimate yourself to how it turns and increase your speed a little at a time cause it will toss you if you are not prepared and yank the bars like you can on a stock ski. Get'em, best money you'll spend on your ski.

If you like it rough now, you will love the skegs.
Best thing I have done to my ride- period.
Have over a hundred hours on a set and would not take triple for them!
Like they say, acclimate yourself before you go for it wot in the tight turns, wow.

But this cornering issue with skegs,,isn`t that why I removed OPAS to begin with? Now I wanna break my wrists again.

I too loved them! Cant wait to have my ski back to put 'em back on the new rideplate.
