You guys think I can tow this?
I curently pull a HO "Black Ice tube" with my ski. I have also pulled two barefoot waterskiers from my RXP as well.
I know that when I have the Black Ice hooked on, I have trouble getting three big teenagers out of the water on that thing.
I think it would be easier to pull with this molecule tube......
I dont want to buy one get it all inflated, load people on it, and not be able to get it out of the water. I could reprop I guess, as well.
Want it for the kids, and as a swim platform off the dock during the weekends........
What do you think?

Yeah, I think you can tow the molecule. It looks like it produces less drag then a conventional tube and it's also less likely to flip.

The flying kite is "outlawed" in most states.

The Manta Ray is no longer available in Texas.
I got pulled over (figuratively speaking) pulling a wakeboarder behind mine because the mirrors on the '04 wake edition aren't 4" square and I didn't have a spotter.
Not sure if that's a federal or state thing but something you may want to keep in mind...

Seems aweful big to pull just one or two people. Out here we have to have a spotter and a place for the person being towed/pulled to sit, so if you have a three seater you could only pull one person. I am not sure of what the laws are out in your neck of the woods.

In Minnesota law, there is no provision for considering the amount of people on the tube, when factoring in the tow vehicle. If my RXP could pull 25 people on a tube, that is fine with Minnesota law.
Also there is no spotter required if you have a rear view mirror. Most of the time however I do have a spotter on the back.......
I dont need to make a decision on the tube anytime soon, there is still plenty of ice on the lakes around here. People are still icefishing up in Northern Minnesota with 3+ feet of ice on the lakes

im sure the ski would have no issue pulling the tube with the amount of power it has. the hardest part of towing is getting it moving from a stop once its up on plane your good.
i can only tow with my 3 seater in nj and can only pull one person. nj law is driver/spotter/and a place for the tuber to get back on. so you can tow with anything less.
