Has anyone used these for better hole shot and getting the bow down?
I am thinking about using them on my Shadowcast 18 instead of trim tabs.

No but they will work tremendously. My last boat had a very negative degree transom built in. Hole shot was immediate regardless of load or balance. However, trim up quick so not to bow steer. Not a replacement for tabs. Tabs adjust ride. For hole shot the wedges will beat out tabs as tabs need the boat moving a certain speed to work. Motor tucked way under does not need speed to push bow down. The angle naturally pushes boat up and bow down.

And if you don’t like them. Send them my way. I have an awesome holeshot solo. But would like a little better holeshot with 2 heavyweights on the boat. My other option is have someone cut jackplate and reweld it in a negative angle.
