    1 degree vs. 2 degree

    Here's the question,

    I know that with the Riva plate, a 1 degree is the choice. Most of you are modding for speed 1st and foremost. I tend to pack a ton of shit in my front compartments (medical bag, food, drinks etc. not to mention the added weight of the speakers and amp, cleats, Orion off shore kit, gps...yada...yada)
    I already have the 1 degree and Riva plate, not installed yet. Is there any reason with my normal extra weigh, I may want to use a 2 degree to keep the bow up or will the 1 degree and plate be enough?

    Thanks, Marc

    I'm not sure about this. But I'm looking to dump my 2° for a 1° if your willing to trade.

    trade may be option, I need two if I go that way. Does the 2 degree still allow reverse?

    Yes, I'm running the Riva ride plate. Some adjustments to the cable were needed to make the reverse bucket work properly.

    If you have the resources or the know how just go out a buy another OEM 2 degree wedge and just mill it down to 1 degree alot cheaper than spending the money on the R&D 1degree wedge. I did and havent had any problems with it.
