Are you planning to add one to the other side to see if it helps with face shaping? Maybe like a mini convex V hull extension Tige trial.?.?.?.?. That where my mind ends up!

Olds - Slow down buddy :)
 
The whole theory behind the asymmetrical wake plate is to help clean up the goofy side wave due to the left handed prop rotation.
On my boat (F-23) with the goose slappers, my regular wave is way cleaner than my goofy side (unfortunately for me as a goofy rider). so that is why I am trying this out (and the jury is still out so far, but I am having some better results with the tab deployed around 1/4 to 1/2)
 
On both the F-21 and 21 WB it seems to be the opposite with slappers (Goofy side is cleaner than the regular side) Not sure if this is because of the different hull design, length or weight of the boat or what but from what I have experienced so far
with proper mounting of the slappers, and weighting of the boat, you can get an outstanding wave on the goofy side without any modification to the plate.
 
So my suggestion would be for you to not jump into modifying your plate until after you have dialed in the slappers FWIW

lol thanks for the insight! I hadn't planned on diving in yet, I've been talking about it for 3 years and never thought I would get the results I dreamed of, similar to my previous outside tabs I had trialed lol
