    Preferred Wedge: Riva or R&D?

    What do the majority of the individuals on this board prefer Riva or R&D? Are you guys getting more speed out of the R&D 2.5 wedge with VTS rod over the Riva 2.0 with VTS rod? And if so what real world speed increase are you seeing?

    RXP stick with RIVA
    RXT/GTX go for the R&D

    the VTS rod mainly helps holeshot and turning.......trim in or around neutral produces highest top speed

    Are you all seeing enough difference in speed increase for the money? The reason I ask, is I have tried wedges on my skis in the past and I never did like the way it made the ski handle along with the minor speed increase(maybe a .5 speed increase).

    I have used the Riva 2.0 wedge for 3 years. On GPS I did gain 1 mph in calm water and no gain in the chop. It took me a few time out to get comfortable with how my RXP handles and am happy with it and will not remove it!

    The wedge will gain you close to 1mph in calm water, but another thing I like about it is that it makes the ski ride drier too. I like mine (Riva) ...
