These last few have made some good points. Especially about slack in the rope. With the right amount of weight you could do damage in a snag or slack.

I have noticed this risk while I pull anything I want from my tower. And I happen to not let things go beyond their limits. I have killed the fun on the tube because of a need to kill the throttle. My boats more important than their fun.

With that said. I feel all the warnings not to tube from your tower, are comparable to the warning to not do burnouts in your car or truck because you could lose control and crash. It means some people will take that risk to have some fun. But I've never crashed from a burnout. Nor has any tube(s) caused any damage.

I personally have the ski pylon removed from my boat. So its not an option.
