  • Picklefork X2 hard ballast removal

    Has anyone attempted to remove the 2 rear OEM hard ballasts from an Picklefork X2? I have a 2008 and it appears that they are too long to be able to pull up and out and would need to be cut out and therefore useless, never to be used again?

    They should come out. Takes a little squeezing

      One side will come out, the other side needs to be cut before it can be removed.

            I’m not sure on an ‘08 but on the ‘10 it is impossible with out splitting the hull or cutting the tank.

              I am seriously contemplating doing this as well on my X2... maybe we can get wakemakers or another provider to make us custom bags together to help keep the cost down? So far anything I see in the L configuration is for a bigger boat. usually a 24' or so. What's your thought?

                Custom surf bag would be around $550 and 1000#

                  They have a custom bag available afaik. Our old friend KnoxX2 was the test pilot, iirc.....
                  Prior boats - (3) X14's, (3) Prostars, and a Tristar.

                    Knox did have a custom bag made for his 200VRS (X2) with no tanks, since he sold the boat I now have the custom bag. I called Wakemakers a while back and they did not have any info on it (I wanted to have a second one made for the other side).

                    I don't use it that much, it works better with a 750 in each side. If I were buy bags again, I would get something 50X24X24, a 1,000 or 1,100 pounder. The 750 fills out the locker long ways but has quite a bit of room left on the top and sides. The picture is from my boat with the 750:

                            Does the X2 benefit from the bow sac for surfing?
