    In my experience they make handling more predictable in chop and reduce porposing in all conditions. They are worth every penny. Get them by all means unless you can find a pair like the RE OPAS blocks that extend back farther.

    Where do you have your Riva sponsons set at? You can still spin out with these OPAS blocks. They won't prevent spinning out.

    set rour riva sponsons all the way down,get RE'S and skegs and handling will improve 10 times more you will carve like a pro the skegs dig in the turn so hold on tight or you will be spining off the sea-doo.

    Sorry, I wasn't asking where you purchased them. I meant how low or high are they? The Riva sponsons are adjustable. Adjust them so they are as low as possible. This should help reduce the spinning out a little bit and help the ski carve better.

    Well add the skegs like daverxp4 recommended then. If that doesn't work then maybe it's something you're doing because I run the stock sponsons, stock steering nozzle, stock VTS, riva grate, and riva pro OPAS blocks and only spin out when I try. Do you trim down in turns?

    I guess if spinning out is really annoying you then you should swap to the R&D grate to stay hooked up better and keep the rear planted in turns more. Also try the XPL steering nozzle or the R&D 15mm extended steering nozzle. Both of those combined could scrub a couple mph though. If you run a wedge you may want the VTS extension rod so you can trim down more in turns.
