    How does the FX SHO "Wake Zone" mode differ from just letting the ski idle through?

    I would just idle through the wakezone on my old ski, what benefit does the "wake zone" mode have?

    It increases RPM up to 1900 or so without you having to hold the throttle.

    Unfortunately, it goes too fast doing that, because every time I engage it, I end up with a wake.

    idle

    So is it faster than just letting the ski idle through the wakezone? I just don't get the point of it...

    Most ski's, you can give a bit of throttle, and still not leave a wake. Thus crossing the no wake zone quicker than just idling.

    My SHO maintains 5 mph, unfortunatly it does leave a wake.

    At least with the no-wake mode, unlike the cruise, you don't have to hold the throttle down, so if someone yells at you for the tiny wake, you can throw your hands up and say "look! it's idling!!"

    the tiny wake is not an issue. I use it all the time.

    Unfortunately, that doesnt always work. I was in a no wake zone using the mode and got screamed at by the local sheriffs deputy because i was going to fast in a no wake zone. I held my hands up and told him that is how high it idles. I was informed i need to lower the idle or get ticketed.
