Hello first time posting here,
I just got my hands on a 2011 Malibu VLX and I'm extremely stoked about it. I was just wondering from those who have ridden behind a VLX quite frequently what your preference for weight was while riding (and wedge setting). I would also like to know what rope length and speed you rode at as well.
The boat itself has 3 hard tanks and a power wedge. (I've read most of your discrepancies against not having the front tank, I plan on adding around 350lbs up front to compensate for it) I am an intermediate-advanced rider coming over from a Supra SSV where I used to ride at 75' around 23mph and around 2000lb of ballast (ended up being +400 stock).
