The FIT series ballast bags line from WakeMAKERS includes three ranges: UniversalFIT, ExactFIT, and CustomFIT, ensuring every boater can find a ballast bag that fits their boat’s dimensions, desired performance, and budget.
Why does FIT matter?
The better the fit, the more weight you'll actually get in the ballast bag. Other bags may have the rated capacity of 750 lbs, but if they don't properly fit the dimensions of the rear locker (hint: most of the time they don't), you won't actually get that 750 lbs once the bag is filled. That bag may only weight 500 lbs once filled due to constraints from the locker space. You get more weight and better results from a smaller bag that fits correctly and can fill to maximum capacity. One size does not fit all when it comes to adding ballast bags to your boat.
UniversalFIT Ballast Bags
UniversalFIT ballast bags offer a premium fit at the price of a standard off-the-shelf ballast bag. There are four different styles of UniversalFIT bags designed to properly fit within different zones of an inboard boat: rear locker, center locker, midship, and bow. Each style of bag is available in incremental sizes for the length, width, and height, allowing a premium fit without the expense of a custom-made ballast bag.
ExactFIT Ballast Bags
ExactFIT ballast bags are the most advanced ballast bag on the market today as they are designed and built using a 3D laser scan of the boat’s compartments. The result is the best possible fit using all the available space in the compartment, maximizing the bag’s capacity to create bigger results with the boat’s wake while at the same time offering as much storage space as possible.
CustomFIT Ballast Bags
CustomFIT ballast bags are built to the customer’s exact specifications including the dimensions as well as the number and location of ports. From the initial bag design to the time the bag(s) are installed in the boat, the customer works with a WakeMAKERS ballast expert to ensure a smooth, seamless process. This is a great option when ExactFIT bags don’t exist for the application.
