    Polaris 6 degree wedge question

    Hello
    I've read on here that a 6 degree wedge will increase speed. I understand that because 1996 SLTX has a 4 degree wedge and it gets an increase in speed when my wife is on the back rather than just myself. I'm currently working on a SL 900 that came with a 6 degree wedge. I'm sure its a dumb question, but is a 6 degree wedge on a jetski with a trim much of a benefit? If it isn't I may just put it on a 1997 SLTX that I just bought.
    Thank you,
    Clayton G

    Best bet is to experiment and see what you get. It's really easy to swap them out and do back to back testing.

    I used to beach the ski with the back end on shore and do it right there.

    I found the bigger wedge works best for top speed on smooth water. On choppy water, the 4 is what I preferred.
