    Sometimes a small bowl extension (2") can help reverse function, that helps keep the reverse thrust from getting trapped above the rideplate.

    Both trim systems work very well and are quite similar in design , if you haven't expiremented you might try different up and down trim positions to see what positively effects your reverse action Also what Josh suggested, moving the steering back (spacer) I honestly think you have limited options (re the actual bucket) Tom

    Truthfully it's probably a coin toss between the two as far a function, the Place Diverter is the more popular unit. The Turbine Trim requires it's own unique transitional housing, there for it will only work on Split Bowl equiped jets.

    As far as your reverse issue, you may try experimenting with the trim in various possitions while reversing. On my own boat, I found the reverse to be better with the trim in the max up position. This pointed the reverse chute just below the ride plate, rather than trapping it above.
