I have a B52 and I love the wake it throws. I want to add more weight(with 1600 ballast filled) but I am not sure how much more to put. I usually only ride with three people. Also what is a good rope length. I ride currently at 70 ft but i heard a longer line will give you more pop. Any feedback would be great!

you can add whatever you want but i recomend adding equal portions to both the front and the back, otherwise you end up with a wake that is soft and super lippy or a wake that is way too wide. i would start with 500 in the rear and 500 in the front.

as far as a longer line you will have more room to cut out and more time to load up the line and go bigger and have more hangtime. keep in mind that for every 5 feet of rope you add you usually add about one to one a half miles an hour to the speed of the boat.
