    How many paddles did you go with?
    I am being told that makes a difference, Any advice for me when buying paddles ?

    The blue looks really good.

    Thanks I like the blue as well. The tires have 12 paddles. My son bought them for me last year for our Can-Am commander and it was too much. We're heading to the Oregon dunes mid June I'll let you know how they do on this machine.

    Definitely a must have in the sand. I did experience a little wheel hop under certain conditions, I think it was due to the suspension.

    Nice. I'm thinking of getting paddles for mine to use at Glamis. Let us know how much of an improvement it makes over the stock tires.

    The wheel hop is most definitely due to the rear springs being too stiff. I installed the Shock Therapy spring kit and the wheel hop in the sand is gone on my R. Not sure what improvement it will do on the X but their kit adds crossover rings to the X to make it a true dual rate spring and that should provide a lot of improvement.
