Mission Delta Wakeshaper on PS 205?

Anyone using a Mission Delta Wake Shaper on a ballasted ProStar 205? What is your experience? Work OK on that hull?

I am using the nauticurl device. Lots of room to mount these devices with suction cups on my '99 PS205. i am working on some video from this weekend I will post. Stay tuned...

I have the same hull and using ballast plus any wakeshaper (delta, nauti, or a homemade version) makes a nice surf wake.

Thanks

Appreciate the comments.
Found I need to put ballast bags as far back in the stern as they can go to maintain steepness of the wake, position the device as far astern as it will go and slow from 11.2 down to 9.8 mph to get rideable wake w the shaper. Will keep experimenting.

This is the same setup that has worked best for me also with 96 Prostar, 2000# in back, nauticurl as far back as possible, with a few passengers up front, speed 9.5 to 10.5mph.

Pro Star 190

New to wake surfing and I have what is probably the worst boat for doing it, a PS190.

That being said, what specific ballast are you using in your PS?

Have you tried the couch shaped ballast bag?

Does it function well or is it a gimmick?

Is there a problem with the air vents on the rear above the swim step, getting water in them?

Anything else your experience has shown you?

We have access to a few different surf specific boats and they are great, but we love our PS and would like to find a way to make it work.

Thanks

fat sacs

I have been using 2 x 350# Fat Sacs and one Fat Cube ~ 75# for off set. Just ordered a 750# 20x20x60" Fat Sac which I'll experiment with next week on vacation - to supplement the 2 x 350# sacs. Haven't tried the "Chair" - not sure what beam size that is made for?

You should see an improvement with the extra weight. I run 600s on each side of the doghouse and a 900 in the rear seat position. I also partially fill another 900# bag in the walk-through depending on how many people are in the boat. With a homemade suck-gate I get a very nice wave. Next I'm thinking of trying an ACME 543/1229 to see if I can bring the RPMs down?
