Thread: OPAS block off

  1. #1

    OPAS block off

    Riva has many kits available. The pro series is $335 while the performance one is only $100. why such a big difference and what is the big difference in terms of performance between these two? I want something that will add top end and increase handling but i prefer buying the cheaper one. Any input is appreciated about what everyone runs. thanks

    I guess there are some new blockoffs coming out. They look great. Never used block offs so someone else will have to chime in.

    The pro is the ONLY way to go!!! The performance is only a the kit to remove your OPAS... the pro actually fills the void in your hull from removing your OPAS and prevents your ski from bouncing at high speeds..

    I have run the cheap block offs... They suck. Porpoised all over the place...

    Don't go cheap on this... Go for the Riva Pro ones, or try to find a set of RE's or XBO's used. They are the only way to go...

    You will not be happy with the cheap riva ones as soon as you break 72MPH... that's when you start bouncing....

    RE is Race Engineering... Jerry was selling them in the store, but I don't know if they are still making them or not.

    And XBO is a RE knock off that a member was selling on here. He didn't make too many of them.
