Howdy!

So, I know there is some custom options for the x14v but to be honest it is more than a little pricey. So I am wondering if there is a good option that may be a bit more work but I don't need to use it all that often. How do you all think these would work in the x14v lockers?

I like the Straightline option because of the "link" system. I am thinking that would make getting the water out of them easier given the confined space of the locker. Am I totally off base with this? It is like $1,000 less expensive.

Thanks!

350s are fairly modest ballast. How much room do you have in the lockers? Guessing the SL 550s or 800s are only marginally more expensive. Personally, i prefer a bag that is a bit larger than the space so it is not completely tight and ready to burst.

That makes sense to me. I am totally new to ballast. I am a slalom convert.

Do I need to worry about getting the pump to drain the bag inside the locker or is that pretty easy?
