SportsStuff Booster Ball

Any fellow MC'ers use the Booster Ball to tow their inflatables? Good/Bad/Indifferent results? My harness and tow rope often get caught in the wake and the booster ball looks like it would help towing performance.

Thanks,

Mike

I know, I know. Still have kids and other non-skiers that come along. It is fun making them hold on for dear life to the tube.

I don't care to do that much tubing either but it's funny when you get that person who tries to hold on until the bitter end. In this case it was just that much better because it was my son.

Just giving you a hard time man. Every MC owner is free to use their boat as they please. At the end of the day when I can no longer grip a ski handle a good ride on the tube with a beer in hand is common for me too.

No tube ever pulled behind an MC can ever compare to the X Star that had a trolling motor that was on here a while ago lol.
