your still going to need extra weight to make a bigger wake. check into the fly high custom bags designed for the x2.

The more ballast you have, the taller your wave is going to get. If you put all your weight in the rear, you will get a very rampy wave with a small pocket. If you add some weight to the bow, you will get less height, but a longer pocket. Of course every boat setup is different and wave characteristics will vary depending on a variety of factors that include, but not limited to weight distribution in the boat, boat speed, Wake-Shaper deployment angle, water depth, etc....

We have tried without any ballast at all and Wake-Shaper still produces a decent surfable wave. We tried just filling the stock hard tanks and the wave is great! We also sacked out the boat and the wave is better, but not needed for most riders.
