I ordered just the bags, then filled them with scrap lead. Plus 2 of my neighbors did the same. It took them a while to fill each of the orders. Like 10 - 15 days.

Call them & leave a voicemail with your email address & phone #. I don't know this for sure, but I get the impression that this is his side business & he has a real job too. Might take him a little time to fill the order if he's only doing it evenings &/or weekends, especially in the summer when it's busy.

I orderd 400lb the same way you did and got an email 2 days later that I needed to use a buisness addres because they come truck freight. Almost 2 weeks later still nothing emailed back and they said order slip was lost and they had to redo it week later they were here. worth the wait wake is nice and even now good luck

I ordered some a few years back and shipping was tricky. The bags had to be drop shipped and were basically undeliverable. I had to go and pickup them up at the local shipping hub. A little odd, but well worth it. We have pop bags hidden in our boat and riders can never figure out why our wake is so sweet.

That's my little nephew JB for ya!!! 'Ol Uncle Johnny really tries to sack the boat out for these kids! All it takes for JB to get big air are a few bread sticks! Keep the pop bags hidden...under seats, front cut outs, storgage areas...the key to greatness is being invisible!!!
Quick hijack...Here is one of my favorite video clips of JB going big!

Pop Bags are definitely the way to go. We've had the same bags for years. Still holding up.

Bill, I have thought about ordering just the bags myself. I have some lead I can put in a few. Do the bags have a zipper? Or how do you close them up once you fill them?

The black bags you see in the pictures are a sort of rubberized canvas with a velcro opening. Inside there is a heavy duty plastic bag that I filled with scrap lead & then just taped it shut with packing tape. I think I have about $120 invested in eight 40+ lb bags.

Good to hear their on their way to you, Matt. It's worth the effort.
