    It's ok for rough water but defiantly not as good as the stock plate on the boat and the stock plate is faster also. The best think to do is send the stock ride plate to Jim's performance and have him put his cut on it and then u will be in business

    Send the stock plate to Jim. In my experiences most of the aftermarket plates perform worse than stock in rough water.

    i know your referring to the svho's. but with the SHO the riva ride plate was good in chop, and out run most other plates,put it on glass water against a stock vx plate i saw 3mph difference between the two.

    seems people are getting great gains from stock modified plates.
