I just have a quick question if you ride fully weighted on your malibu how long do you ride your wake rope and at that length are you closer to where the boat prop makes the bubbles or are you closer to the mush. and what speed do you ride at

thanks i know its a wierd question but this will help me out alot

What is "mush"?length and speed depends on the rider... if your not clearing the wake, move the line in or stop slowing at the wake(take a progressive edge into it) You should never be around the "mush"
