New Xstar ballast rear bags

Anyone happens to know which is the most sizeable rear ballast bags that would fit the new xstar (no need to keep the hard cover/lid in the trunk)?
Many tks

They need to be custom. There are a few stars out there with larger than stock bags. Ask your dealer though I’m not sure it’s allowed yet. They are made by flyhigh

maybe the 1100lbs fatsac http://barefootinternational.com/FATSACS.bifh

but probably custom sacs for $500 a piece, what does the dealer say, does MC eventually already have custom sacs to offer?

Many tks I will check. The boat is too new and has a lot of room. The very best way is really do something customized in the biggest size the trunk can accommodate so we see the wave this baby can throw up. 7.4 should withstand good amount of weight.....

I cant imagine how the wake was. Huge? Did you wakeboard or surf?
The 2 under the side seats?
Do you know if the I can buy the PRO directly from MC?
Many tks for the reply

Doubt MC is going to offer bigger bags than the boat comes with in the back. The liability risk would probably prevent that.......

I'm sure wakemakers will have something before long....

Yes I saw these bags (Pro) in TBS. I think it is possible to put an even bigger sac so the customized bags is really the way to go I believe. With the 7.4 I trust we can test the limits of the boat, of the wake vs weight.
Tks for the reply
