    Talking R&D VS. RIVA Wedge?

    I was thinking, but do not remember if anybody did back to back testing on this wedges . Because i was just searching thru all my spare parts and found a R&D one. So before i do the testing i had to ask .

    between the riva 2° and the r&d 2.5° people have found the 2.5° is too much for the rxp as far as speed gains and porpoising. Some with 3 seaters like the 2.5° though because they are so much more 'stuck' in the water to begin with.

    comparison:
    I agree. on my 3 seater I have a riva 2 degree and find it ample, I`m 200#`s, now Lenny is taller and heavier so I would think he would need the 2.5 degree. Def put in the weight factor when choosing...PR...

    On the 3 seaters, once you go S3 + the wedge seems to hurt more than anything, in my case at least. The boat would not stop jumping from the hole, and when it stayed planted....it would propoise like crazy at high speeds.
