Have not seen any info on the group buy yet, but wakemakers.com has some good info. If you are like me though, once you get that first fat sac in and the wake makes a difference you tend to add another sac, then another, then another, then a bigger one and so on. So you might as well get what you want the first time. I wish they would have a deal on some dual 750 lbs bags.

Yeah i will probably get a sack for the ski locker and then maybe another to replace the rear seat? i dunno, maybe if its just me and 2 other ppl riding i could run 3 sacks those two plus a bow sack but i kinda want something more automatic then have to use the tsunami pumps.. not a bad thing but i just kinda would like to hit a button lol

there is a discussion topic devoted to ballast systems under forums. you will get lots of ideas for a diy project there. A lot of boats on this and other forums are running tsunami pumps on a switch to fill and drain. If you don't mind drilling holes in the bottom of your boat it is not that difficult to do.
