Got a message from Wakemakers about these new pumps. Has anybody seen them in action yet? Mike, do you have these insalled already? LOL.

These were to have been released last year. Not sure why they weren't.

I don't think you plumb this system in. It's a fast(er) fill portable system.

doesn't the flow and swell systems make ballast bags as useful as cd's

you are correct. I remember reading and watching the vids on them early last spring. it's all portable systems, nothing built in.

I'd be surprised to see this as a built in system in the near future.

and no, jm, you still run weight with those setups. they enable you to weight both sides evenly and switch quicker.

These are made by Ronix, they are portable Ballast, using a 3700gph pump, and 1.5 inch lines.

They are not designed to be plumbed into the boats at this time.

I was just talking to Spencer last night when I saw the video.

this might be the easiest to go with the outback..the 1100 flyhigh i have in the back is a pain to drain if out on the water

There are two options available from Ronix. Telescopic bags and the non Telescopic (like std bags). Both types have connection's for plumbing into boats for IBS

Makes me kinda mad that I spent all the money I did on Flyhigh and this comes out over the winter.
