To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

The one thing I have learned on this amazing site is that even though I have owned and loved my Prostar for 11 years, I have alot to learn. The members of this site are by for the most knowledgeable Mastercraft enthusiasts I have encountered. (the humor is pretty great as well!!)

I think the powerslot is also a velvet drive. I believe the 1:1 and powerslot trannys are both made by borg warner in that year. You should look on the ID plate on top of the tranny by the dipstick and it will indicate the gear ratio. Also, why are you selling it?

The identification tags says Model 10-17-004 with the 1:1 ratio. The owners manual and ID tag say Velvet Drive...so I'm going to say she is not a power slot. I'm selling because my L4 and L5 vert are getting worse with every year. I'm going to continue to ski, but very limited. This 93 makes me want to ski hard and ski all the time. When I ski behind my friends Response, I don't pull as hard.

Banana George Blair had back problems in his 40's so he learned how to barefoot as part of his "therapy".

Maybe you just need to slalom less and start barefooting?

Check your prop size stamped on the hub......13 X 13 is for a direct drive, 14 X 18 is for a powerslot.

One thing (far-fetched) that comes to mind is that your working harder behind the 190 than the Response. Check your speed to see if the 190 is pulling correctly or if the Response is pulling you hot. Hard work usually indicates lagging in the water for one reason or another. Wake characteristics will also make for a hard pull when comparing. Technique will suffer with different wakes to navigate when on edge(s).

The 190 is typically considered an adequate tow boat, however in my younger days of skiing, I have seen (or more-so heard) Kris LaPoint pull a MC down like it had an outboard on it at 28 off for a warm-up pass... thus the R&D soon after those years, for the Powerslot (then to come).

I've taken a few passes on my feet...always seem to end up with my eyelids peeled back over my forehead (just can't hold onto a boom). She has a 13x13 prop. Thank you so much for the help.

Feet further out front. Bend knees more, feet will move forward. No more face plants.

Any tips on getting a better grip? (still on the boom) I seem to concentrate so much on the feet and knees that I don't realize my grip is slippping...then the plant!

Go to a short rope with a handle. Or better yet, just go long line behind the boat... forget the boom...

Gloves will help. Or a new extension piece that will have a new knurled surface.

A rule of thumb in trick skiing.. if you look down, you go down. Don't look down at your feet.
