pump wedge and intake grate question
I was looking at the riva web site at the pump wedge and in their description it says they do not recommend using the wedge without the intake grate or you will get unpredictable handling. I haven't heard of this before.
I'm asking because i was just going to do the wedge at first, then get the grate later. I ride mostly in smooth water so the grate is not a major concern yet.
Does anyone have any feed back?

If your riding a RXP, IMHO I recommend only the Riva intakegrate. The RXP already has trim and you can pretty much dial in your ski for speed runs. When you combine the wedge w/ the trim you start to limit your overall handling. I know several RXP riders who started off with wedges and now have removed them.
As for the RXT/GTX the wedge seems to work well. But even some RXT owners have removed them and went back to stock. Especially when you get to stage III speeds.

Yup, as stated above, I removed mine too. It only added to the porpoise issue in choppy waters so I took it off & accepted the .75 - 1mph loss on glass water but gained the handling in the chop back.
