    Thumbs down Blasting my kids while tubing.

    Not sure if the best place to ask or not but here goes. Been mainly using the ski to drag my kids around the lake and a course making them lots a water -----bad thing is they are also eating from the ski blast I don't have trim on the ski so that's out. I was running a 2 degree wedge and tried without it today with little change. Kids say it's like a hail storm if stuck right behind me and I'm using a 60ft rope. The boys don't like going slow either so it doesn't help. Haven't trimmed reverse bucket at all , I figured it'd make it worse. Is my only option going with more rope? I think another 5ft would move them out of the blast zone. I always thought too much blast was above water but I'm just a choochoo mechanic so what would I know. Lol please help.

    I always thought that the steering nozzle on the GTX had adjustable bushes that could be set one way or the other. Trimmed up or trimmed down. Have you looked at that?

    Yep, just checked the Oem parts finder. Bottom bush can be reversed to trim nozzle up or down.

    60ft is pretty long and think that's the standard length. Any idea what the next length is?

    +1 on the longer rope. 60 ft sounds short, i think the standard length is 75 feet.

    Get an extension for the rope you have. I think Overton's sells them. We used them for tubing from the wakeboard tower. Extend the rope 5FT and you should be fine. I also got sprayed from tubing being a ski, and that was just with a 2-Stroke GTI. Not fun.

    Why don't you add VTS? Takes a little bit of work but it's not that bad.
