    I never noticed any gains on either of my skis..BUT once you add a wedge you force the jet up higher with the potential for it to hit the bucket..Add a wedge and take some GPS numbers and then cut it,GPS it again and see what and if anything has happened..Even once you cut it it isnt gonna effect your performance negatively.
