    What 2 buy 1st: RE Block Offs or Jet Wings?

    Hi:

    Will I get a bigger bang for the buck by replacing the OPAS with a set of RE's Block offs or should I start with replacing the factory sponsons with a set from Jet Wings. I eventually will be doing both. (I think).

    Most of my riding is done in some sort of chop, and the ah... "boys" (if you get my drift) are not really happy with the seat slamming into them.

    I'm also looking for tighter turns at lower speeds for doing donuts and spinouts.

    Am I trying to cover too many bases? If so I'd say that improving the ride in the chop is my priority.

    The GTX SC is a huge improvement over my Polaris Virage TXi in that regard. I do understand the differences in the hull shape, and it's effect on the PWCs ride.

    Thanks for reading..

    Hobie

    I dont think youll be doing many donuts or spin outs with jet wings. I hear these things grip extremley well in turns.

    I havent really hit any turns REAL fast and hard, for fear of falling in cold water, but I dont see spinouts happening with jetwings.
    I would go for RE blockoffs first. If you want it to be loose in the rear for easy spinouts, get Riva sponsons mounted on the bottom holes.
