Hello, I have a 2015 t23 with factory ballast plus PNP WITH 1100# sacks in each corner and 750 under bow. No matter which setup I try I can’t get the wakeboard wake steep enough. What’s are you guys who running to make it big and steep.

More weight in the front? Wedge, ect?

Drop some rear weight and drop the wedge.

So tons of weight in the front? I have tried it with a second sack on the bow and that helped. guess I’ll keep adding more lol

I run 550s in the rear with middle and front full. Plenty steep. Maybe too much weight in back?

1100 in the rear for a wakeboard wake might be a little much.. I would try and not fill the entire back bags.

I have been normally running the back bags halfway or a little less if using the wedge. I think I’m going to try a second bag on top of the front seats.

1100# plus wedge is A LOT of weight with only 750 in the front. Is the boat going fast enough to get a clean wake with that set-up? Remember the more weight you have, the faster you have to move it to make it clean. That set-up probably requires 12 mph. You might get a better wake if you let a few hundred pounds OUT of each of the rear bags. Try it and experiment with the speed a bit.

this makes no sense. I have a t22 with plug and play 850 s in the rear 650 up front if anything try and drop a bag in the center on the floor near the front. it might be a pain but how many people on the boat? where do they sit. etc your wave should be huge. if i drop the plate it gets steep and short no plate for mine..

I have people shift around and it makes a big difference .

Funny how the last 2 replies automatically assume the question is about the surf wave but the question is about the steepness of the WAKEBOARD wake. I never had a steepness issue with any of my Axis boats by 60/40 to 50/50 rear to front weight distro then I drop the wedge at 21.6mph to 22mph depending on how I feel that day. Axis boats need that extra bow weight to firm up the wake that gives it more pop. Also, have someone see where you are riding in relation to the wake. Wake might be a little steeper 5-10ft behind you. I wouldn't add rope length just to find steepness because I ride short line at 60-65ft plus handle but maybe you would.

Gee sorry i mis read and you thought it was funny. i still said ad weight up front its the same wave just faster without surfgate. I look next time for WAKEBOARD WAKE. My question would be why do you feel entitled to make dumb comments about others trying to help. Glad your such a pro.
