RIVA Sponsons ??
I've been considering getting the sponson kit because my RXP doesnt turn for shit. Will the RIVA sponsons work much better than the OE ones even if set at the highest setting ? I really dont want to sacrifice my top end speeds by running the sponson kit.

You won't lose much (if any) speed with the sponsons, I know I didn't. I run mine in the middle position most of the time. On my RXP I've got the Riva's, skegs and still have opas...it sticks pretty well.

The sponsons don't usually touch the water are full speed.
Buy skegs if you don't have them already. They should get you turning just fine and save you a good chunk of change as well.
One thing Riva sponsons don't do is automatically avoid floating tires/wheels. But I can't blame them I guess since stock sponsons probably wouldn't either

Are you saying to not get the sponsons and just get the skegs ?

i got rivas there great you dont loose any speed ,the skeggs are no good for spin outs if you are in to that sort of thing

I find that constant turning is important because the guys on the other skis never catch on that your top speed is as low as it really is.
