Pulling a tube
So I want to pull a tube with a 785. What is the best way to hook the towline to the ski? I saw some pylon on ebay but it was for a genesis or something. Don't really wanna tie it to the grab handle either.
I know, the law says you need a 3 person ski to tow technically, but I'm gonna do it anyway.
If anyone has something they can fabricate to bolt on that they know works I'll buy one .

Oh my please don't!!
Honestly, with the construction of the Pro hull's, I'd never pull a tube etc...

Even if I bolted something through the back under the grab handle? Anyone else have any ideas?

Although I admire your enthusiasm, honestly I do, it's really not the best idea. As Redline mentioned, it's really not constucted for that purpose, (although I have no doubt that it could be done) and it's already a somewhat peaky, high rpm, 92 octane machine. I'd hate to see you cruising around in the "hotspot" of the timing curve pulling an extra load.
Let us know how you make out if you do it.

It might be hard to fine someone willing to be pulled behind the 8K water cannon!!!

Yeah, I had seen the picture of the pylon you posted on ebay, wasn't sure if that would bolt onto mine or not.
But, I think you guys have talked me out of it. I though it would be a blast getting poulled on a tube at almost 70mph! My g/f has been wanting her own ski for awhile, guess this is a good excuse.
