    Exclamation Riva Plate Vs: Group-k Plate....fyi

    FYI:

    Riva plate vs: Group-k "mod stock plate"

    Real simple..............I had the pump wedge on both set ups.........

    Switched plates and back to back testing:

    Riva plate is faster:..........+1.7 mph on my Stalker.

    Handling is very good. Medium chop runs right through it.

    The boat feels so much lighter and quicker it is really hard to believe..........

    HOLESHOT IS AWESOME!...............

    I did see a gain with the Group-k plate over stock

    right at .8 mph gain...........1.7 + .8= 2.5 mph gain.

    That's what I was wanting to say..... lighter and quicker. I felt the same way. I did not have the wedge in. I'll put it back in later and see how it runs.
    What speeds are you running?

    I saw it! It looks like the ski is higher out of the water in the front, and your ski sounds bad ass!
