ok after reading a few post I tried a few extra bags this weekend, we ended up running a 450 bag in rear locker and a 750 bag in center center. the wake was way big but still had alot a wash at top.
We then started playing with the center tab, we found that running the center tab down around 20 to 25%. the wake ended up with a ton of push and a long pocket.
But we still had wash at the top, any ideas what I might be doing wrong.

What was your speed?

Wakeplate needs to be between 35% - 55%

What ballast tanks did you have filled up?

How many people are typically in the boat?

Woon, I did read over the hole post, to many peeps with diff ideas, your wake looks perfect but your post is kind of hard to figure out what your actually running where.

900lbs back port locker (750 Sac and lead), 850lbs under the port seat, 300-400lbs under the Starboard bow seat, factory port full, factory kgb full. 2600-2800 is what we run plus people and there's only usually 4 of us out there in the boat.

With the stock prop 30-40%. With the 5 blade zero %

Or we could just drop my stars and stripes on your gunwale and call it a day. No, that wouldn't be enough weight.

2800 lbs just to surf seems like a lot of work filling up all those bags. How is the wave with just the factory plus the 750?

I only have to fill two bags and I have two pumps so its quick.

Ya it's probably only 5 min extra time. It's just a bit of a pain switching sides, that's all.

The pics of your waves always look perfectly shaped and tall.

woon, does the 5 blade prop make that much difference in the wake shape?

No but it makes a huge difference in getting on plane and how much bow rise there is

How much top end did you lose by going to the 5 blade?

The best setup that works on my boat are when the trim tabs are set as follows from left to right: 20-25% , 20-25%, 75-80%. That is set up for left side surfing. obviously the opposite for the right side

None. Still the same in the upper 30's close to 40
