Any fellow MC'ers use the Booster Ball to tow their inflatables? Good/Bad/Indifferent results? My harness and tow rope often get caught in the wake and the booster ball looks like it would help towing performance.

Thanks,

Mike

I know, I know. Still have kids and other non-skiers that come along. It is fun making them hold on for dear life to the tube.

They keep the rope from dragging, they work well.

Thanks, I know they look a quite odd but 99% of the reviews were positive. Just wanted to see how they worked behind a MC. My transom lift hooks are pretty low.

Just giving you a hard time man. Every MC owner is free to use their boat as they please. At the end of the day when I can no longer grip a ski handle a good ride on the tube with a beer in hand is common for me too.

No tube ever pulled behind an MC can ever compare to the X Star that had a trolling motor that was on here a while ago lol.

I don't care to do that much tubing either but it's funny when you get that person who tries to hold on until the bitter end. In this case it was just that much better because it was my son. :D

Same here. My sons are 15 and 11. The 15 year old has actually held on and saved it a couple of times when the tube was perpendicular to the water. Reminds him that Dad always has the upper hand.

There is nothing like a good old tube war with 4 or 5 single tubes behind the boat
