You'll get more replies on CenturionCrew, but the boat likes weight in the middle. Sometimes run stock ballast and a 500lb between the driver and pass seat. or my buddy just upgraded to FH 750's in the rear lockers and puts that 500lb between the driver again. The 750's are not full so about 500lbs. We never had to run bow weight.

You'll need to upgrade your prop for sure if you have the 350mag engine. surfing wave is very good and meaty. 750 in the corner, 500 on the seat, 10.5mph

any suggestions on the prop upgrade?

Prop: Acme 1579 has been everyone's fav. I run Acme 1631 which is the same specs but a tad more cup for an extra 1-2mph top end. A person or 2 didn't like the 1631 as they said it put slight more turbulance on their surf wave but they were running an Enzo, I run an Avy, and you're talking about the Falcon (that I ride weekly).

If you pull the tanks and add 750's or do in the right way from the beginning and buck up for custom sacs like H2O, you'll want some bow weight to balance out so much in the rear.
