Alrighty Girls! Question for you! What length rope is the best to use? The boat that I just bought comes with one with it. I'm not sure what make or length it is. Just wondering what was the best. And another thing! What speed do you like to be pulled at? I usually go around 24 or 25.}

22 mph 65' rope...will vary with the boat and the amount of weight in it.

There is not one answer to what is best. I say go with what you like and you can vary it for whatever you will be doing behind the boat. Same goes with speed. If you want to try a new trick, you may want to do it one wake, so you can go slower and/or with a longer rope. Or you can also go really short so that you don't have to go so fast to clear the wake. It is all about what makes you feel comfortable and safe.

I usually ride 60-65' and 20-21 depending on weight on the boat. But I can go 18 with a 50' rope to try something new.

Any speed that gives you a clean wake no white washy. I ride at 24 and 70. the longer out you are the faster you want.

I ride at 80' at around 23-25 mph depending on weight and the type of boat.
