    The buck..what pressure to look for?

    I was reading through some pump pressure data posted by members and was wondering at what pressure to let off the throttle (as in what pressure reading means the buck is about to happen?)

    I have my GPR set up with a pressure gauge hooked into the pump and 2 jet works valves bleeding the pressure off..Just want to be safe and know what to look for.

    Thanks.

    I am drilling two holes in the shoe the way Insanediego Joe did. Why get all cute, if it isn't necessary?

    Every ski down here that we drilled holes in cavitated bad out of the hole.. also at higher speeds skis felt sloppy.. guess you could lower you plate to compensate but, then you seem to loose speed maybe just did not find that sweet spot. for me the valves were the way to go
