2000 X-Star Ski Locker & Bow Bags

I need a new Ski Locker Bag and I'm thinking about adding a Bow bag under the seats. What are the best bags for those locations? Thanks!

The IBS will work under the front seats, but you won't be able to completely fill it. A custom bag is the only thing that fits perfectly in the ski locker.

Our ski locker measures ~12x12x80. I chose the Straight Line Big Bag 375, which measures 14x14x65 and cost ~$90. There are no premade 80" long bags, and a custom one from wakemakers is $200+.

Also, the stock KGB bag on my X-Star was 65" long, not 80" long.

That's perfect. The extra space with the smaller bag would allow a few small bags of lead to be placed in a nice hidden location...

I have this in my ski locker: http://www.evo.com/fat-sacks/fly-hig...campaign=17719

It's rated for 375#. But probably only fills up to 350 at the most. For bow weight you'll probably find that the IBS won't be enough weight up front if you're running anything more than 400s in the rear lockers.

I have 2 pro X -260lb sacs inline
I have a "Y" from my pump to go to both.
Still dialing it in but I think I have it. Just want to fill every inch of the locker forthe biggest wake possible

Are you trying to replace the factory one that came in your boat in the center belly locker, then you need a W704 with 3 W736 fittings, 3 w740 fittings, and 3 w742 fittings. You have to cement the 3 w736 fittings using NOTHING but PVC cement at room temperature. NOTHING else works.

For under the tip of the nose under the seats, it would be our W711.

The w704 will conform to the size so do not worry about it. Much cheaper than going back to MC for the sac.

Also, that is too much weight in the bow if you use both. Let me know what you have in the rear and if you are wakeboarding or wakesurfing because there might be some more help I can offer.

I hope this helps.
