What have you Moomba owners found as the ideal weight set up? I just have 500 lb factory ballast in the front and am adding lead weight to the back. The front bag alone with no weight in the back actually shrinks the wake. You can quote ratios if that make more sense.

In our 2003 outback we have the stock ballast. Then we add a 250# up front, two 375#s on each side of the engine, and one 250 in the back. Maybe i can dig up a picture if you like.

In my 03 LSV gravity games I ran 350 on both sides in the back, 250 sacks plus 100 in sand, 150 on each side under the seats, 600 sack in ski locker and another 350 sack in the bow + 100 in sand each side in the front under the seats. 2150 lbs with no people, the wake was sick...... Just got out with my 06 LSV and still playing with waight, ran 3,000 lbs today with wake plate at a little over half. it was the S%#ts.

sounds pretty sweet randy, i demoed the 06 lsv before i demoed my xlv and i was really impressed with the wake with just the 1100# of stock ballast, i'm sure yours must be killer at 2000#+ :-)

my xlv is gonna have about 2300# this weekend when i put the new bags in, i can't wait to see how it looks :-)
