    pump extension or wedge

    I have the 2 degree wedge that riva claims is good for 1-2 mph more. I was going to order the extension which also claims 1-2 mph, and a improvement in handling. I have read on the site people have said don't use the two together. So other than handling I would see no gain in top end getting rid of the wedge would keep me at the same speed.

    You are going to see a solid 2 mph gain with the pump extension.
    I never did see more than 1 mph gain with the wedge.

    with the extension In choppy conditions you will be able to fly thru the water far faster than you could without it. The difference is incredible!

    I would test it first if you want to run it with the wedge. I can tell you that with the pump extention and trim all the way up it was quite interesting especially in heavy cross wind.

    I never tested the wedge with extention but its last on my list for now.

    wedge never got more than 1 mph.
    handling improvement is where the wedge shines

    I had my wedge on for 15 minutes & took it off. Hated the handling. Felt very squirrely. This was on an RXT-X. Had to try it though.

    I couldn't agree more on T-X. Which is strange as most like wedge on the RXT/GTX. Must be something to do with different intake/tunel on T-X. I have tried the wedge on T-X twice and it doesn't do anything for me. On my RXP I like the wedge if not running set back pump.

    wedge or extension

    I thought my RXP felt comfortable with the wedge but it looks like the extension is going to happen.
