    good - Riva or R&D pro single bar (they are both identical)

    better - is the R&D pro single bar grate and R&D pump shoe, this grate is different than the grate above and you have to use the R&D pump shoe with it

    best - is the R&D B transom set-up, this set-up includes the R&D single bar grate, a different R&D pump shoe and billet R&D transom

    (The complete handling package made by bullet is also very good)

    I agree with Philip, Riva single bar is great for rec rough water use and so on.

    I have had a Rd aquavein 2 since my 1st GPR in 2000 still in great shape after being on 3 different GPRs I have had. For rec riding it works great.

    my comments above apply to close course

    the only time these single bar grates don't work well is on flat water using and angled aftermarket rideplate

    I use a R&D shoes and single bar grate on my ski that I ride most often
