Talk to anyone who rides a Malibu with a lot of weight. At least from the good riders I know, nobody uses the wedge with a lot of weight
I will second this. I have a buddy with 09 malibu. We made him put the wedge down for the first time this summer this past week. We have around 2,000lbs of ballast and that is all that is needed in that boat. The wedge did change the wake, but nothing that was even needed. It definitely creates more drag and pulling the back of the boat down (as if more ballast in the rear), but I prefer the wake without the wedge down.
In my opinion only, the Malibu wedge is on the only style that theoretically makes sense to work.
