Centurion is on the leading edge of that trend with three models that handle more than 4,500 pounds of ballast: the Ri237 (5,100), FS44 (5,050) and FS33 (4,550).
MasterCraft's all-new X23 boasts 2,450 pounds of hard-tank ballast, complemented by 590 pounds of plumbed bags for a grand total of 3,040 pounds. Malibu's quad hard-tank systems max out at 1,825 pounds, but the company's Plug N Play option allows advanced riders and surfers to add two 550-pound rear sacks, taking the total ballast capacity to 2,925 pounds. Tigé's XL ballast package totals exactly 3,000 pounds, while Supra's Liquid Lead system maxes out at 3,200 pounds in the flagship SE. Axis doesn't have a model that eclipses the 2,850 mark, but it has four models that break 2,500 pounds: the A24 (2,750), A22 (2,650), T22 (2,550) and T23 (2,550). The Mojo leads the Moomba line with a 2,500-pound system.
