That seems like a pretty good speed/rope length. What tricks are you landing? Unless you are advanced, I wouldn't go past 75'.

75' at around 24 or a little faster if we have extra weight to keep the wake real clean. start speeding up a little if you want to do more advanced tricks. the added line tension will help you with a lot of inverts and even more for raley based tricks.

Thanks guys. Went out this weekend and road 22.7 at 75 ft. It's amazing just how much a little extra speed can do. And the added line tension was helping a ton with my spins.

Color me confused but you said that you typically ride 22.5-23.0 at 75ft.

Now you are saying that you increased the speed to 22.7 and that the increase was really apparent and helps with your spins.

If you went to 22.7 from 22.5, I doubt you could feel a difference however if you were riding at 23 before, you decreased your speed.

Something just isn't making sense. (No, I am not digging on you, just trying to make sense out of your post).
