The Right Ratio Of Ballast

Whats the best ratio of ballast Front/ Rear for my 1993 pros star 190
I have a rear fat sac that can hold 1500lbs & about 150lbs sac in the front.
whats the best weight ratio for this boat front & back? Do i need 50/50 30/70 40/60 front - rear split?

cheers ant

That's debatable, but my opinion is 50/50 or slightly more in the back.

True...there are a lot of variables, but as a general rule of thumb it's about 60/40 favoring the rear.
