Line Length / Speed - Your Favorite?

I usually ski at 32 MPH at 22 off. What does everyone else like? There's a little bump at 22 off, but 15 is a hair long.

Obviously some experimentation is needed, but what do you guys think about 28 off?

Free skiing, 32 mph at 15off. Need to drop it to 30 though.
Course, as slow as she'll go; 15 off.

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.

I free ski at 15 off and 32 to 34, but since I been on the course, I've gone to full rope and 28 mph. 3 balls is my best, but I'm getting real close to getting 4.

Sorry, should have clarified my numbers a bit . Open water: 22 off @ 32 mph. Course: 15 off @ 30 mph.

For me free ski at 32 at 15 off.

Start the course at 28 at 15 off. Best I ever did was 6 balls @32/15 off.

Novice here no course experience, full rope length at 30-32, any shorter or faster and I feel a yard sale happening!

Free skiing is 15 off @ 32. Still waiting to get the boat to the lake with the course. I'm sure it'll be full length @20 and still only get 2 or three though LOL
