I had the best weekend I have had in a long time on the lake this past weekend so I thought I would share my excitment. I have always rode just using an old SL ski rope so last week I finally sucked it up and bought a fire jacket mainline from wakeside.com I wasnt sure if it would really help me that much but it was the best $75 I have ever spent. I spent the weekend at my parents lakehouse on Lake LBJ and over the course of the weekend I was able to take all of my ts and hs 180s wake to wake and I finally nailed the 360 after many months/years of frustration. I landed it 3 times in a row. I also realized that if we up the speed to 24mph on our i/o it actually firms the wake up and makes the boat alot easier to keep on speed. I dont post on here often but I was pretty excited so I had to share.
Thats really cool! I'm happy for you. i know one of my friends parents have an i/o and he trys riding on it and he had a really hard time keeping the wake. but you also need the right prop to. that might help . just a thought!
Yeah, we trim ours up too and with about 4 people and 800 lbs of sand it throws a decent wake. What would be a good prop for this setup? We currently have a 3 blade, not sure of the pitch. I was thinking a 4 blade might make it easier to hold speed. The boat is a 21ft Larson with the 5 liter V8.
