View Full Version : If I get an integrated bow sac do I still need my KGB?

09-15-2013, 10:47 PM
I have a 2001 X10 and am getting ready to replace all of my ballast system as the KGB sac and one of the hard tanks are leaking. It just does not work well for surfing so I will be upgrading to a 1100lb sac in each rear locker and a 650 lb integrated bow sac.

I am wondering if I really need to replace my KGB sac or if the bow sac will do the trick by itself? That would save me from having to add an additional pump and plumbing since I can just use the KGB pump.

What are your thoughts?

I replaced the rear tanks on my X2 with 750lb sacs and added and IBS which fills from the KGB. I decided to leave the KGB in for added weight in the front. My hull really likes that. I had considered adding a dedicated pump for the IBS but I was surprised how quickly it fills from the KGB. We ski, board and surf, so just time the drink or swim breaks while the ballast is filling or emptying.

I'm just not sure that much weight on this hull is necessary. It is the maristar 210 VRS hull.

The current pump is a 800 GPH pump and it don't want to have to wait to get them both full. I would think that the added weight that far forward would work better than just the KGB.
