So I have been looking into this slapper mod. I had 2 questions. Has anyone ever added holes to the slapper in order to creat more turbulence something like a mission Delta? And also what size is everyone cutting there slapper to for a f21?

Not sure why “more turbulence” would be a desired thing. Or if holes would even create that effect? Or if Bigfoot is real?

Thewhile turbulence question came up because I saw a add for a new mission Delta 2.0 and it talks about the turbulence and says how it cleans up the wave. Then I started thinking I wonder if it would help on a slapper....

I think it is just MD “new” innovation that others don’t have. It’s gotta be better. Right?!
If it was easy... everybody would do it!!

That's pretty much what I figured, you guys all have such great looking waves with zero holes. Hopefully olds gets his drill out and shows everyone what they have been missing.

I saved that piece of paper when I picked them up at Tap Plastics thinking it may be useful. Thanks to Russ for making it and placing my order.

agree with the above pic...most people do around a 12x24" slapper with good results as that is close to the original malibu size.
