    Thumbs up SKEGS!!!

    i must say that the skegs i got from jerry are unbeleavable.....was on the water almost all day yesterday and i couldn't believe it...those two little pieces of aluminum make my RXT feel like its a little two seater, very light on the water!!! i installed them along with the RE blockoffs and must say, those two together are the best money i spent so far.....so to all of you other couch riders, get a set of skegs, you wont be disappointed......just my .02

    About theses skegs, Has anyone ever lost one? It seems like they would get knocked off pretty easily if you were to spin the ski around (by hand & motor off) in shallow areas like on shore or sand bar. I'm thinking about getting a set.

    i have the wedge already, thanks and yes i think i did see an increase in speed .....kinda hard to test back to back cause the weather changes day to day here and to be safe i let the epoxy set over night ......but it feels real light and fast

    I rode my rxp for the first time yesterday with them on. I didn't do very much carving because I was getting wet and the water was freakin cold. I did really think they help though. Wish the water was warmer

    Ross, im glad you liked the skegs bro. I knew you would. It seems they have more of an impact on the GTX/RXT platform.
