Speed: 23.6 mph
Rope length: 78 feet
Custom settings: I set my SmartPlate at 25 to 50, depending on the day; 25 will make the wake a little steeper and give the top a little more lip. If there are a lot of people in the boat, I may bump it down to 30, 40 or 50 to decrease the steepness.
Ballast: I fill stock ballast to 100 percent in all three zones, and I add an additional 1,500 pounds for pro-level training — about 650 pounds under each seat in the cockpit area and 200 pounds in the bow.
