Weighing a 230
I've go a fly high piggie back system coming for my '09 230. It consists of a 650lb belly sack and 2 400lb locker sacks. For the last few years, I've been using movable 400lb vdrive sacks and pumps to add ballast to my boat. I'll be interested to see what kind of a wake I can get out of the piggie back system alone.

How do you guys or your friends weigh the 230's you ride behind? Seems like I always hear something different. At the pro tour event, Jd told me something crazy like he puts 4k in weight in his 230.

you should probably throw the bags you have now into the bow and sink that down, i have never sacked one out or ridden one but nose weight never hurts and from what i have seen in that jimmy lariche video he slams the bow

I currently own a 2009 230 Team and when I purchased the boat I had the Fly high system installed, the kit contains two Vdrive sacks and a bow ballast. I love the boat sacked but I really think that it could use some extra weight in the bow becasue the boat likes to propus some when loaded so you have to play with the gate
