    Riva vs R&D Trim Tabs

    Have to replace the factory plastic tabs on my 300PX, both options out there are aluminum. But I'm leaning towards the R&D due to the fact they are 1inch longer than the Riva which share the same dimensions as stock. I know from my performance offshore boat days that longer tabs will provide better hi-speed stability and aid on getting on plane quicker. But more surface area equals more drag, thus I loose a little on the top end. Anybody have experience running both of these and which one is preferred and why?

    the larger tabs also effect the slow speed steering
