    If you are going to go 80mph, get the SS.

    What if you plan on low 70s. Is the SS a must?

    you shouldn't use any of the Riva or R&D double bar grates - they could break on any ski

    grates that don't have a breaking problem are:

    Worx 1200/1300 grate
    Riva or R&D 1200/1300 single bar grate
    Jerry's SS 800 grate

    How is it that the single bar RIVA 1200 is stronger than the dual? Does it have the same hole shot characteristics as the dual?

    I'd like an answer to jpa1300's question, too. I'm running a R&D 1200 single now on both my GPRs. One I'm planning to mod this offseason to run in the low 70s the other will stay stock (maybe a FF plate).

    the following is pure speculation, but I think the design where there are dual bars on one side of the wing and only a single bar on the other creates a stress point on the wing that fails

    the single bar doesn't have this stress point - possible the single bar is able to flex instead of breaking

    single bar grates have been used extensively on high hp triple pipe race skis without failing
