View Full Version : Prostar 209

My brother and I have gotten pretty good at wakeboarding and can do tricks such as 360s and tantrums. We have a 2001 Prostar 209 with a x9 tower. My dad said that we can get an x2 in a couple of years once we are out of school so in the mean time we were looking at getting 750lbs of ballast under the rear seat and around 350lbs in the center compartment. Will this extra weight make any difference or should we save the $400 or so dollars?

form everything I read - make sure you are putting some weight in the front ski locker as well.

400 is a lot. We have an 03 209. I got 2 750# bags for 110 each, pump was 99. Takes about 7 min per bag and they are well worth it. I put the rear seat up, put one bag full underneath. Put the other in the rear compartment and fill about half full. I don't know if that floor can hold the 750. Good luck!
