    Default Dana or Bennett trim tabs?

    Looking to install some trim tabs on my 25ft Nordic rage. Are Bennetts going to get the job done or do I need high performance Danas? I'm running a stock 496 HO.

    How fast will the boat run? Bennett Sport tabs will take you to about 70. I can supply you with either.

    I can top out at 72-74, I'm trying to keep the price down but not at the coat of safety.

    I have Bennett's on my Checkmate. They are the best thing that I have done to my boat. My boat runs about 70 and there is zero minuses to them. Some of the others are really cool, but the price for them is absurd.

    I agree, anything billet is ridiculous. What size do you recommend, 30x9? I'm not looking for speed just balance and stability, I sometimes get nasty chine walk in rough waters. And are they through bolted? Or "lagged" in?

    Hi Checkmate 21 I am going to be installing Bennett tabs on my Checkmate, and you send me a few pictures of your installation?

    Thanks

    For balance and stability, I would go with something longer and stronger like the Dana's. You can move them further towards the outside and get more stability because of the leverage with less drag.
