Ronix Wakesurf Shaper?

Has anyone seen one of these?

Seems pretty steep for a block of polystyrene and some velcro, but on the other side of the coin, thats an easy mod for anyone to do.

Carbon fiber according to WakeMakers - I'd be interested to see how well it works.

The video looks good - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEiVxBCH388

$600 seems outrageous to me. Plus I am not going to ride around with giant velcro strips stuck to the side of my boat. That is as bad as the people that ride around with their bumpers hanging off the side of the boat.

Word is that it falls off about as often as most prom dresses.

$600! That'll buy quite a bit of plywood. For $600 you could nearly outfit every 205v on TT

Velcro would be pretty lame. Vacuum suction cups would be a much better idea. Probably just need one in fact.
