    shredmaster results

    guys i finally got to test my shredmaster on jump boat today,(thanks steve)

    got a good feel for the plate within the first 20 mins and was very happy with the ride over stock plate..

    gained a respectable 1.9mph over the stock plate in the smooth but as you know thats not what this plate is made for...

    carves and turns sharper than stock, and seems to hold the back in line on the very tight turn which stock plate wants to spin out and try the 360..

    rough water was great as it kept the nose higher and helped with the skimming effect off the top of 3-4 footers and allowed for more speed and did a slightly better job keeping the pump fed

    i would stick with a stock plate if wave jumping is your ONLY thing as the stock plate seemed to give a better launch from tick over IF your waiting on a set of good waves but once it was up and running there is nothing in them,or so it seemed to me...

    smooth water bounce is still there @ about 40 ish and you can eradicate this by shifting your weight as you would expect and i'm sure you could smooth this bounce out some more with trim tab spacing which will also help with rough water hook BUT i'm staying right here on my tabs for now but will try some fine tuning mid summer as ive got lowell boat to break in next as the better weather is on way and jump boat can be layed up for the summer months

    to summarise i'm very happy and regard this as a great buy if your conditions dont allow a ff or island speed plate...

    "00" trim tabs
    1200 grate
    shredmaster
    all mods less porting

    just my findings,hope this helps

    On your stock plate thoughts:

    I have a stock plate that I had 3/16 slots cut the lenghth of the center of the plate. I used a 3/16 ball nose cutter so the slots are rounded at the bottom, and 3/16 deep. They are 3/8 of a inch apart.
    I did this to see if I could gain less surface contact at high speed, do to hydroplaining.
    What I got was a plate that YOU CAN NOT SLIDE. Hard to break loose.

    SORT OF like haveing TRAINING WHEELS. really. If you would like to see I can post a pic? I still have it, I thought of putting an angle on it to see what it would do from there.
    I like to slide in the corners, So it is not for me.

    JUST a FYI.

    its not as grabby as riva sponsons but does seem to dig in on a turn,slight tighter curve..

    Paul, is this a stock shred? I had a more planted feeling when I tested it, and lost mph over stock plate. Not bad, just sayin...

    In my original testing in 2004 with the Shred it had the same top speed as a stock plate.

    In 2006 I compared it to a mod 4 IR plate and the Shred was 3 mph slower (typically this IR plate should be 4+ mph faster than stock, so this would make the Shred 1+ faster than stock)

    testing routine - R&D tabs shimmed .100 in, half tank fuel, sitting on seat, 1300 unported stage II, R&D 800 grate

    I am a big fan of the Shred plate and it has basically been on my 1300 ski non-stop for the past 2 years

    It is not as grabby as a R&D, BUt really holds a straight line.
