    I talked to a gentleman from SC at the Milwaukee show and he told me the flow bracket is held on the boat by a 3M adhesive and screws/nuts. My guess is a similar adhesive GM has used to mount doors...

    In person it looks fairly simplistic in design..I would almost go as far as saying it looked cheap and out of place on the Mojo at the show...IMO

    If I were to purchase a boat with this installed from new or install on my existing boat I would definitely get the components powder-coated.

    sometimes simple works.
    not sure why powdercoat? it looks very nice when not deployed and when it is deployed, you'll be in the water and moving so what difference does it make then?
    the unit I examined in milwaukee looked to have some pretty tight tolerances. powdercoat could mess that up.

    in it's current state, those that know what it is will examine it, those that don't will ask what it is since it doesn't "blend in" with the boat and you get an opportunity to school them on Moomba wake technology. win-win

    At some point in Centurions recent past they used to offer the Switchblade as an option. My buddy bought a 2006 avalanche with it installed. It works OK, definitely shapes the wave, not sure it does much for size or length of the wave.

    The Switchblade was a 3rd party offering. Its still around and a few folks swear by it. It makes me nervous from a safety standpoint with swimmers and the force it would seem to exert on the transom.

    I think that Centurion's CATS fin is certainly something that they are using to delay convergence. And they have asymetrical trim tabs (they call them wing tabs). So I would say that Centurion is most certainly using tech. Their rep claimed that by using their cats fin to delay convergence, they are doing it from the center of the boat and not from the rear like everyone else and they claimed that allows them to have more push... Whether it's true or not, I can't say. But they're in the game.

    Supreme and MB are displacement only...

    Hey Everyone I saw this link on youtube about the new flow system. I know people were wondering what the surf wave would look like with regular ballast
