    Question on Slalom with 08-RZ2

    My Daughter has gotten into doing a little Slalom skiing. I understand my boat RZ2 was not designed for that really. Was wanting anyone knowledge of how they set theirs up? Do you weight the front down?

    Thanks

    Tiges tend to like a little bow weight in the front to soften the wake. 100-200lbs in the front and TAPS at 2 usually tend to work decent.

    I don’t have any experience with the RZ2...but I do with the Z3. In the end, it came down to just having a couple of people in the boat for the best slalom wake. With 6-8 people in the boat and a full tank, it was a brick wall. With 2-3 people in the boat and a quarter tank it was a fun ramp. I’m guessing the RZ2 will be similar.

    my old 22ve- same basic hull- got much better slalom reviews than my buddies mondo. we found, as bakes mentioned, less people in the boat and no ballast weight(we always had 2/3-3/4 tank of gas). it still has a couple humps to get over but the guy skiing- id say and 9 out of 10 skier- said it was better than some boats. he skied at 35-36 and did some crazy fast cutting.

    that hull is no boomerang but it'll do.
