Looking for a bigger wake? These Fat Sac Ballast Bags will kick up the wake. These ballast bags are sold as a pair. When filled each bag weighs 400lbs for a total of 800lbs ballast. They were designed to fit in the back side compartments of a v-drive but you can put them anywhere in your boat. These Fat Sacs are also proud to be Made in the USA!
This Fat Sac is super easy and convenient to use. All you do is place the empty bag where you need some extra weight, hook up the tsunami high flow pump (not included) to the quick connect fill fitting, drop the fill tubing into the water, turn on the pump and load the boat up for a killer wake! The tsunami high flow pump is regarded as the best "portable" pump on the market. It fills extremely quick and it very simple to use. It pumps at 1200 GPH (gallons per hour) or roughly 167 lbs / minute. There is no need to cut holes in your boat or hard wire into your boat. Just hook up to the ballast bag and place the fill tube into the water. To power all you do is plug it into the 12V socket/cigaret lighter in your boat. The other option to fill these wakeboard ballast bags is to hook them up to a reversible pump. This is a more complicated install and requires more permeant work (wiring and ports through the boat) that we would recommend having a qualified marine professional install. This is the best way to make an integrated ballast system.
This ballast bag is made by Fat Sac (Barefoot International). They are the original and gold standard when it comes to wakeboard ballast. We use them in our boat and probably 80% or more of the wakeboard boats on your home lake also use them. The new Pro X Series Fat Sacs are constructed with a white water rafting material called Valmex. These sacs are unbelievably durable and no longer need the support of an outer shell. They also come equipped with our Quick Connect Valve system making filling and draining these things an easy task. Furthermore, the placement of our valves makes it possible to daisy-chain them to create the perfect integrated ballast system. All sacs are available in assorted colors to customize the look of your system.
We have a 1990 mastercraft maristar 240sc and we have a 400 lbs in it now and liked the difference it made so for Christmas I got him 800 more lbs. They fit great in our boat can wait to see his face when he gets them.
