Which brands are in the middle to upper as far as quality??

Just go FlyHigh ProXseries and go happy!!! What all are you looking for?

Definitely get the Fly High Pro X from barfoot int'l. <BR> <BR>The quick connect fittings are the shiznit and you don't have to deal with zippers and covers.

Just looking to see what other Brands besides FlyHigh were good. My ski locker is not as deep as the Fly High ski locker tube and I want most of the ballast to be put away so the kids are not climbing on it.

fly high can make you custom sacs.

The bags without the covers and zippers... are they just as durable?

anodyne 08-23-2006 11:03 AM

Yup (from Fly High at least)... They're made out of river-raft material, which is just insanely durable. Moreso than other materials!

i found the launch pad fat sac to be of extreme quality....very tough thick cover and bag with multiple openings for installing into a system. I also have a get high 700 lb fat sac....the bag is tough.....I have had mine for 4 years with no problems......but it is not as well constructed as the launch pad.

kgoings 08-23-2006 11:36 AM

So are the Launch Pad fat sac's made of the same kind of material as Fly High??

tparider 08-23-2006 11:47 AM

Only FlyHigh ProX Series are made of the river rafting material.

Adrenaline Junkie (kgoings: <BR>We (Fly High) are the only Mfg. Co. that uses this Valmex material. No covers three valves come standard and there are 3+ in some of our other Pro X sacs. <BR>As far as your ski locker is concerned the tube sac part# W704 it will fit perfectly in your ski locker. Sacs are built to fill the space that it is put into. So if the ski locker is not as tall as the sac (10" high) you will just fill your sac until your locker is full. <BR>Give me a call if you have any questions. <BR>Chris- <BR>Barefoot Int. &amp; Fly High <BR>414-964-3668

the launchpad sac seems to be be thicker and somehow feels like it is reinforced (compared to my get high).....dont know about the fly high.

Just did my own complete custom ballast in my 06 Sanger V210 with the help of Chris amd Mike @ FlyHigh and from what I've seen the product is second to none. I did my own dimensions with the quick connects, they are awesome. Those guys are top notch to deal with and know a great deal about custom ballast systems in various boats.
