I believe the original Thrust Vector fins will require a trim and I don't think we've actually done a trim template for them. If I were you and if money does not prevent you from getting them, the Thrust Vector X or XV will make life much better for you around the dock when compared to the original Thrust Vectors.

Hope this helps.
Thanks for the quick reply. I wish I could - but don't think it in the budget especially if I'm looking to upgrade with the LT's which I presume would see the greatest impact? Whats the difference between my original TV vs the X or XV?

The difference in slow speed control is literally night and day when you go from the original to the XL or XV. You'll definitely feel like it was worth the investment. Lateral Thruster equally improves your reverse control so you have to decide where you need to focus your dollars. You can't go wrong with either. It comes down to your specific needd

Update, I am ordering 3 xv yamahas, 2 for my sx230 and 1 for my nautica jet tender (FXHO drive). They thought that would put it at the 25% at this point and thought it may already be at 25%. I am calling back in a couple hours so they can get accurate tally.

Yep, we'll get there. I am about to post the update on our newsletter and things will start to get interesting. Typically folks wait to get in till the last minute when the discounts are largest.

I think Im in, but have a question, and read so much I confused myself I think. Ordered Sea Dek and trottle lock for the wife (just plain easy- wish it was thinner). My question is, 17' 212 LS, so I have the rudder. Bought it with the Cobra fins on it (although bent from the boat lift). When the Vectors move up while under power, and towing a boarder or tube, does the boat "wash out" or does the rudder prevent that? If so, i like the TVs, and would do the trade in, and buy (+1) for the LTs.

Thanks...this site has been incredible. Boater for well over 20 years, first jet boat!

I’ve got the same boat & in my limited experience so far there is no noticeable wash out from a 180lb guy on wakeboard either while driving or on the board. I have no steering enhancements yet.

We never get phone calls from people complaining of the stern washing out or being pulled around. I think it is a non issue on newer style boats with the keel. Maybe it was an issue on older flat bottom style Yamahas but again we really never hear that sort of complaint.

The Thrust Vector / Lateral Thruster Group Buy is currently at max discount on both items so you're going to save 35% off on both if you order. During this program we do not combine discounts so you'd need to sell your cobras online. We don't take them on trade and give 35% off.
