    Wedge = Porpoising

    Ever since I put the 2 degree wedge on, I have been porpoising like a BI__CH! I put the riva racing sponsons on, and havent really helped at all. Im ready to remove the wedge? Any suggestions?

    Geez...I don't know what could be causing that especially on an RXT. I run the PPG 2.5 degree wedge and it's smooth as silk. I did run a 2 degree for a while but I like the 2.5 better. I still did not have any porposing on the 2 degree.

    I'm with Rocko Every ski should order the skegs when they order the metal washers. Skegs are the best performance add-on no matter how you ride or what level ski you have.

    Are the skegs fins that go on the bottom rear of the ski?? Those have to be glued on, sanded down and painted ...right?
