I have searched past threads but can find no consistency in the answers. What is the capacity of the factory ballast bag in the current X-7?

Probably not much help frankb, but I installed a 'factory' system in my 197 last season and bought the Fly High rear seat sac. Apparently that is what MC uses - it's capacity is rated at 680+ pounds.

If you take out your back seat, and put in a fat seat you can get up to 800 or more pounds in the back of the boat without loosing any seating capacity.

800 pounds is way too much, unless you have a substantial amount of lead up front.

You dont need that much on that small of a boat, but if total weight is your desire its very hard to match the capacity and function of the fat seat.

I found one new on ebay for 100bucks, then bought a high speed/high capacity pump for 40 bucks.
