usually more weight in the back. From a couple other posts you want about a 60/40 ratio rear/front.

600 on each side of the engine......Ski locker filled, and 600 in the walkway directly between the driver and passenger on top of the ski locker........... not all the way in the nose. That is how they used to weight the PWT boat back then.

I run only 500 in the rear, 400 in ski locker, 400 in the nose all the way up because I like the hard rampy style a little better.

here's how i weight mine. plus 3 or 4 people in there. i have a jump seat so you can fit 3 people nicely right across the middle. ride at 85' at 26-27, and the wake is awesome.

is your 370 center sac the factory KGB? if it's not, and you can move it i would put that as far forward as possible. try and get a 50/50 to 60/40 rear to front ratio. i forgot to mention that i have 2 60 lb tubs of lead that i move to where ever's needed to balance the boat out.

i plan on up grading to all of pro x series sacs next season. 750 on each side of the engine a 750 behind the driver, 370 center ski locker, the integrated bow sac and the big 1200 lb open bow sac. probably also get two 250 side sacs...they are nice and easy to move around to anywhere needed.

sounds like you might just need more weight period. Here is how we run my friends X-1.

Rear-Fly High 750s, not quite full, probably around 600

Center-Stock, probably 300

Walkway- 400

Nose- Integrated bow sack, probably 300
600 in lead all in the bow

Misc-100 in lead to move around the cabin

We've found this set up to work pretty well. The wake is big and firm with a good kick. Noticed a huge difference once we added the additional sac to the walkway in the bow. The 205 hull likes bow weight.

add more to the bow. it'll make the wake harder.

I run 400lb flyhighs in back KGB belly sac and 600lbs of popbags under bow cushions, plenty big for me.
