I don't have any experience with weighting down an x1, but you're definitely gonna need more weight up front. I would try a 500lb sack in the walkway to get a 60/40 back-to-front ratio, which would be a good start.

you need more up front. We run a 400 integrated sac up front, 350 in the locker, 600 in each engine locker, and 400 in a bag in the bow walkway. That should get you good and dumped if you fill up the boat with people. This boat responds very well to weight and never really hits a limit. You'll feel it out to your liking in no time, just make sure you get some weight up front

I own the same hull. With the 2 600's in the rear you want at least 400-500 in the nose along with that 350 in the locker. Then it will be GOLDEN

If stock ballast is full (2 rear tanks 1 center) then it depends on how many people you have in the boat. I ran side sacs in the back (250-300) each with about 500lbs of lead in the nose. With say 3-6 people in the boat the wake is really nice. You don't have to overload the piss out of the boat, it'll be a nice clean wake. With 10 people in the boat the wake is bigger but more vertical, like hitting a wall. bottom line, whatever you add to the back you might want to consider almost that amount in the nose. If you go 800 extra in the rear, 5-600 up front is plenty.

swatguy, what brand 600's are you running? I run the flyhigh v-drive sacs but there only 450's.

i've only been in a x1 once, but it had about 2200 lbs of ballast & the wake was NICE!!
