I have a new Malibu Respone LXI and i am having trouble getting the wake up to scratch...ie its not 'punchy' enough...I do not have a wedge & only want to use weight (lead & water sacks) to achieve optimal wake. Does anybody (who doesnt use a wedge) have any advice on weight distribution in the boat??}

You may want to ask Robert. He sacks his boat down and does not use a wedge. He has a sunsetter Lxi though.

A 60% rear and 40% front weight distribution is all ways a good starting point in most boats.

I have a DD too and find that to be good for wakeboarding.

Oh yeah, I rode behind a response once with a fat seat in the back and a full size sack up front and the wake was pretty nice. That was with the wedge though.

i have a sunsetter lxi and highly recommend the wedge. right now my wedge is awaiting a part and I can't use it, so we are using the boat unwedged and the wake just isn't the same.
