I went out for the first time this year today. It was a blast. I am almost to the point where I can drop the rope. I didn't even get out the wakeboard. I was wondering if anyone has retro fitted the FAE to work with the wedge. Larry thought he might have something out this year but he informed me thay have been to busy with production to do the research.I had a friend out today that was getting horrible headaches from the Co2. I so want to put on a FAE but do not want to give up my wedge. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks, Mike

It should not be a problem. Talk to larry I am sure that they have already made some for your boat. I have a wakeplate on my boat and he said no problem

FAE and the wedge will work together, only the wedge cannot swing; it can be up or it can be down.
You can replace the two bolts that hold the wedge in place with two quick release pins. Then you just remove the wedge, and then put it back on either up or down. This needs to be done on the trailer or in shallow water. It is a pain compared to just swinging it, but then again, carbon monoxide is an even bigger pain.

does any one like running without the wedge for wakesurfing? We don't really use the wedge for wakeboarding that much. Thanks, Mike

I use it for both wakesurfing and wakeboarding. I use that and 880lbs (twins) with the the wedge in my sunsetter and its makes a decent wakesurf and wakeboard wake.

I was hoping they would come out with something for my LSV with the wedge. We dont run that much weight for surfing so the wedge seems to help. For wakeboarding all the stock ballast and the wedge is the perfect amount for us. I guess I could deal with taking it off and puting it up every time but thats quite troublesome. I think I'm going to email mr. FAE.

I was thinking about doing two seperate down spouts into the water from each outlet. Use the down turn exhausts available from the manufact. and add an extension of a pinched tube down into the water. the actual exhaust outlet is smaller than the 4 inch dia tube so im sure you can get away with a fairly small area to decrease the drag of the two pipes projecting below the running surface. A few support rods going up to the swim platform to help the side to side and up and down. I think it would work. Any comments?

mgg- We stopped using the Wedge on my sister's boat early last year and the difference it make in the wake was incredible. You'll need to run more weight but the transition will be a lot smoother providing a more enjoyable ride.

agreed with sean. The wedge adds a steepness to the wake and without it you get a less subtle tranny, less kick. I like the wedge though.
