    It has so much to do with personal preference and riding style.. I personally love the feeling of be locked into the water by any means (Sponsons, Skegs and block off's) but other don't at all.. Some say loose is fast, I say loose is scary..
    Getting rid of the OPAS will make your boat handle speed better and adding aftermarket sponsons will make it handle much better.

    Good luck!!

    That info is so bogus! Any more than 1 " is a waste on any "p" "T" or X model... No IMO, Fact! Ask or PM Jerry!
