    Default My ballast package arrived!

    Man, that was awesome service by Wakemakers! Ordered on Tuesday around 1pm and my package arrived today at around 11:30am. Took advantage of that Free 2-Day Shipping promotion.

    What'd I get?

    (2)Supra BagBuster Kits includes:
    (2) 750# Fly High sacs for my rear lockers
    (1) 1,100 # Fly High sac for my bow locker
    (2) extension hoses

    (3) Supra Vent Upgrade Kits + all fittings

    I am pretty excited to test this all out. Have to call WM just to check again on installing the vent kit to each bag, just have questions on "where" to locate the vents by cutting the stock system hose near the thru-hull. I'm a visual guy and reading the instructions has left me with a couple questions.

    Got all the bags in though on my lunch break!

    Is the bow sac the 1100 or the 1180? Do you have the playpen locker?

    I do have the playpen locker. Packing slip says 1,100lbs kit.

    Are you asking because of fitment issues there to get the full 1,100 lbs which is the W719 Model bag? I wondered this.

    Fitment is what I was getting at, yes. The factory play pen bag is 1180 lbs.

    Factory playpen bag (w842): 88x19x19
    1100 V drive bag (w719): 50x24x24

    Wakemaker's knows that, though. Seems odd they would pair a "jumbo v drive sac" to a shallow bow area? I run the w719 in my rear lockers and its not even close to the same shape as my playpen bag.

    W719 is too big for the 21v lockers, though. If it's anything like the 05 21v, the 750 is just right back there.

    Yeah that's what I figured. But my factory playpen bag is only 650lbs and dimensions I don't know but it's longer than the stock 400s by a considerable amount.

    I don't think that it will fill up entirely because of width but should be pretty close, I'll have to see this weekend.

    I would agree that Fly High should have a sac made that would fit better in a playpen locker but not be as long as the stock bags. You have a 24ssv right? How wide is your playpen?

    KG, that bag you referenced is the Gravity Games playpen bag and is like $330. Just spoke with Jason and he confirmed I probably won't get full capacity but I am ok with that as I can still use one of my leftover 400's to put in the bow because we generally don't use it.

    In to tackle my project now!

    That does seem kind of odd. My basement/playpen fits a 750 (50x20x20) almost perfectly and ends right at the start of the bow seating. I just picked up a W842 to replace it but don't think it will get completely full up in the nose. Yet to be seen.

    No way an 1100 surf sack in there would get a good fill on it...

    Hmmmm?

    Berg it should work the w842 or 1180 is what I have in the xlv and it gets almost 100%

    Can't see the 1100 jumbo surf sac in the center locker though, it might really press on the side walls.
