pump wedge ??
Hey guys here is a question ? What is a pump wedge and where is it located?
What do the different degrees do and can somebody post a picture?

Here is a 4 degree wedge. It kicks up the angle of thrust to help get the nose of the ski more out of the water. Less hull in the water = more speed to an extent. Also helps give it a better ride in the chop.

I think all but a handful of the Polaris pumps have wedges. If you look at the Polaris, Atlanticpowersports, babbits etc. site you can check the parts catalogue and know if your year and model has a wedge.

All but a handful?

actually, in the chop, you fare better with less degree wedge. You will porpoise more with say a 4 or 6 in chop than say a 2. you will gain speed in smooth water with let's say a 6 than a 4. It's all about what you ride in. I've ridden mine without a wedge altogether for a while, and just now am throwing a 2,4,or 6 depending on which lake I'll be riding.

Thats cool. I wasn't aware of that. All I know is, you don't see them on ebay very often.
Damn, I thought Al just posted? Must be the drugs.
