Which extended pylon

Hey there, I have a 92 Prostar 205 and am looking to get an extended pylon for it. Between flyhigh and skylon, which do you have experience with, prefer and why? Both seem to mount the same, secure to the bow the same and are the same height except for one of the skylon's. Any input would be great.

Also, for those or you with fat sacs, where are you putting them, how many do you have and what pump are you using?

I have a '95 PS 205 with a skylon pole. I usually put 2 370's next to the motor box. This weekend I a friend brought 2 400 lb. bags...one in the bow and one in front of the motor box... got a nice wake with nice pop. I won't do the bow 400lb. bow was riding way too low for my liking..

I have both Skylon and Fly High. My FH is for sale. I just did not need 2 pylons and the skylon had the board racks attached to it so I chose that one. They both perform the same.
