2005 X-Star Ballast System
I am adding some weight to my 2005 Mastercraft X-Star.

I have been shopping at

What do you all think about the:
Size: 50"L x 24"W x 24"H
Weight: 1100lbs.
Ports: 2 fill/vent - 1 drain
in the back

and the:
Size: 40"L x 22"W x 6"H
Weight: 250lbs.
Ports: 2 vent 2 fill/vent Size: 40"L x 22"W x 6"H
Capacity: 250lbs
in the front?

Also has anyone used their PiggyBack systems?

Here is a picture of my rig here:

PiggyBack System?
Has anyone tried their PiggyBack systems?

How well do they work and does it take too long to fill?

Does anyone have pictures of the made to fit 750 lb bags in the rear v/s the 1100 lb bags?

I have a set of there 750's on the way and plan on hooking them up piggyback to my stock tanks. Our local dealer has done a few piggyback m systems and I have read we real forums with people using them and it seems to work great. I will have mine in before next weekend and will let you know how it works.

THX bro I will be posting pics of mine here too!

I ended up going with the larger 1100 LB sacks in the back for Wake surfing.

It took WakeMakers too long to respond with their discount code so I refused to order through them. Kind of bad advertising in my opinion to say that you will give a discount and then make you jump through hoops to get it!

I ended up going with Paul at casanovasoutdoor (262) 783-6456

They are right down the road from Mike Seipel at Barefoot Intl. (561) 523-1947. He is 2 time world champion Barefooter and an amazing guy to talk to! Super knowledgable and friendly! They makes all the Fly High equipment.

From what I hear all distributors order from Barefoot and they drop ship. So you might as well order from someone close to the manufacturer.

I use (2) 720 lb sacs made for the X-star and when full there isn't much room left. I don't see how an 1100 is going to fit unless it goes forward where the batteries are and under the seat.
The rear compartments are not 50" long, more like 42".

This thread was the main reason that I chose the 1100 lb rear sacks.
