    08-11 fx sho R&D ride plate opinions

    Whatís the thoughts on the R&D rideplate for the older fx sho?

    i know Jimís cut is the plate to have but being this side of the of the pond means shipping is slow and expensive thinking of going for an R&D then sending oem for a Jimís cut?

    I had the R&D on my previous ski, felt nice, no hopping, It sits alot closer to the hull than the deep oem but i didnt feel a necessary loss of rough water handling. I'd get it for sure, before they run out

    Same here mate, never ridden a lake in my life, the ski handled fantastic with the plate and Worx grate, felt like it tracked better too.
