<BR>I dont have PP is that really something I need? pros &amp; cons ... anyone?

It's such a must have i would never buy a boat without it. You will feel the same way if you ever get it or ever drive a boat with it

If I were given the choice between a tower and a PP, I would take the PP, no doubt about it. <BR>I will never own another boat without one either.. <BR> <BR>B-

at first I thought "how good can it really be?". you quickly find out................it is a must have. In my opinion, probably one of the most useful boat innovations in recent history.

Serious, I need to hear it from more people. Tell me how it is so worth it. Is it because after a turn you are still going same speed? Is it great because you get to speed quickly? Or is it because that once you load your boat up it is harder to maintain speed unless you have Perfect pass?

It makes ALMOST anyone a perfect driver. PP is worth every penny you pay for it. I find it comes in especially handy on double ups. I love it for the busy days on the lake when you're watching other boats and other riders and you don't have to worry about your speed. You can sit and talk to everyone in the boat, turn around watch the rider, talk on the phone, change CD's whatever. It makes driving easy. <BR> <BR>Sometimes I sit and ponder how many marriages Perfect Pass has saved.

It does 2 things for me - it means I get a solid pull from anyone that I trust to drive the boat, and it makes driving the boat much less stressful (actually relaxing). I've been doing a ton of wakesurfing lately and it would be about impossible to keep the speed steady within 1/4 mph without PP. The only time it's turned off is when I'm driving fast from a ride spot to the dock. <BR>

For my family it is not only a great stress reliever but also a safety issue. we are on the delta so there are many things you have to pay attention to and by eliminating the need to worry about speed it gives you that much more time and energy to focus on other things like the rider in front of you and the one you're pulling.

If you wakeboard it is a definite yes, ive got one on an I/O even. I bet my perfect pass can keep speed better then you or i can?

My dad says he doesnt want to waste money on an expensive cruise control. He even wont let me buy it w/ my own money. "it is 1/4 the value of the boat"

Waste of money.

You don't have to have PP if you have good drivers in your crew. <BR>True, it's nice for the driver so he can concentrate on other things. <BR>True, it's almost required for good wakesurfing. <BR>True, it's probably saved many a marriage (that's some funny chit Dogg). <BR>However, you can have great pulls w/o PP if you have great drivers. <BR>Even the best drivers slip up occasionally, so if you're looking for a flawless competition style pull every time out - get it and hopefully your driver can learn to use it and deliver.

I found for larger people, especially ones that edge aggresivly "I am 6'3" 220" It is even more critical. The driver has to be that much better to come close to PP's performance. I have not found one yet to even get close on a pass, compared to my PP. Mine was broken for a few weeks, and I missed it dearly, rode with it again for the first time last weekend and my riding improved 100%!! Thank you Perfect Pass!!!! <BR> <BR>

Could you guys start a donation basket and contribute to it so I could get PP, it would save my marriage, tear tear. Continues crying, looks around to see if anyone notices.

wakeguru 07-07-2003 1:48 PM

Bwuhahahahahhaha! <BR>Priceless!

ponchevez 07-07-2003 4:38 PM

<BR>Which one is recomend for wakeboarding? Wakebaord pro, digital Pro, wakebaordCruise, etc. <BR> <BR>What are the diferences? <BR> <BR>Also, Is it hard to install, I live in Mexico and dont have a way to take my boat to the USA again. Wait for your replys, and thank for all the good info.

We have Wakeboard Cruise, when I bought it, the sales person said it's basically the same as Wakeboard Pro. But $500 or $600 difference. I am not sure of the extra benefits of the pro version, but for us, the cruise works great!
