Wakemakers.com for all your ballast needs. If you have time and looking to save a buck ebay / Craigslist.

For diy surf device go here and look for the bob v5 design by bet on black. It is the favorite these days, i have one and like it.

I would work solely off the dimensions. The capacity is very misleading with ballast bags...

For instance the 50x20x20 Straight Line Sumo sac from 2016 stated 750Lb. capacity whereas the 2017 version of the 50x20x20 states 850Lbs.

someone did a write up on this and found that most sacs are under rated... the advertised weight is just marketing spin. dimensions tell the true story IMO.

I think the 50x20x20 bags are perfect for most Vdrives. However this will leave little to no storage when filled. I had Sumo Sac 600 in my 2007 X star (40x20x20) and let just enough room when filled for about 4 life jackets.
