Did you guys buy the whole fly high system listed on wakemakers or did you buy the bags and a few components. I am wanting to order over the winter but want to make sure I buy the right stuff.

From what I have read my 06 does not have timers?... If this is correct do I just watch for the bags to be full, and don't have to worry about resetting timers.

Sorry, not familiar with the 06's but the system piggybacks into the factory ballast tanks and overflow comes out of the thru-hull fittings. Wakemakers is great to deal with. I've bought a lot of stuff from them. I would call them and tell them what you're wanting to do (wakeboard, surf, etc.) and they'll hook you up with what you need.

Thanks, I guess I will give them a shout and order over the phone. I was a little hesitant, I guess I was worried they would over sell me if I don't know much going in.

If you're just starting out wakeboarding the factory ballast would be more than enough. If you want to surf you'll need more ballast. They have some different configurations you can lookup on their website before you call them so you have some idea of what you're looking for.

If you're looking more for surf ballast here's a thread about the X2 and surfing.

http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=49816

I wouldn't worry about them overselling you. I have found them great to work with. Recently, I was working with Jason on my surf ballast setup. I was thinking about a custom bag which would have been very expensive but after talking with him he recommended their 1100# bag which cost $190.

There are no timers on the 06 models. 07 had the 5 minute max timers, which someone on here can reprogram. With the 06, just make sure you have the bags plugged into the factory vent lines and turn them off when water starts coming out the vent lines.

The guys at wakemakers are very helpful and have great customer service.
