I have one, its the really big one 1800#, i used it in my prostar 205 and it went pretty much to the back of the driver seat and filled the floor.

I had to patch it once, throw me an offer.

How much weight did you have to throw up front to offset all that weight in the back. I know we are talking about much different boats but just curious. Also do you have a extra pump or do you still use it.

my pump broke, i picked up a tsunami for my new sacs. I put 500 up front. The nice thing about this fat seat is that it is 3 separate compartments. So u could just fill the back up if ur boat cant handle the weight.

I had one in my last boat and had mixed feelings about it. It takes up a lot of space. It's not comfortable. If you want to surf, it's really hard to shift the weight to one side and keep it there.

It does do a good job of getting a lot of weight in the boat.

That's what I use to surf with my '95 190. I fill the back and one side and then put the backseat in the upper position ideally with people sitting on it. Probably should add some weight to the front but have yet to mess with it. Works well and i'm happy with it. I am much more into skiing so perhaps I am not anywhere nearly as picky as some would be but I can definitely ride without holding the rope by using it.

In my 96' 190 the wake gets pretty soft/sloppy with the weight too far back. The best we've found is a 750 on each side of the doghouse. I'd bet 900s on each side would be even better, but the Fly-High 750s fit perfectly.
