Augh The guys at Fly High decided that OEM orders there were more important than my order. Paul @ casanovasoutdoor just let me know that the sacks won't be ready until tomorrow. he is making me pay the difference to have the parts shipped for Saturday delivery when he had promised them by Friday. Hmm sketchy!

In the meantime the extra parts that I ordered from www.wakemakers.com are already on the way. They have been great to deal with as soon as they give you the promised discount code.

THX thamax!

That is what I was hoping! I doubt I will use them at 90% full for wake but I will when we surf!

THX for the reassurance!

puckhead - did you get your sac's installed?

I added the 750's on Friday. It made a huge difference in our surf wake.

I have the 750s in the rear lockers without any issues. For up front, I saved money and bought the V-Drive set (pair) at 400# each, I just fill them as much as the space allows. The V-Drive bags won't work with a piggyback system if using them up front as you can't fill them all the way, but if using a Tsunami, it works great. A 55# Fat Sac brick works well for adjusting for people in the boat if more heavily weighted on on side or the other.
