Sold in a set of two bags, the Pro X Series V-Drive Sacs work well in the rear lockers of v-drive boats, or split up with one bag in the front of the boat and one in the rear of the boat.
The Fly High Pro X Series V-Drive Sacs are sold as a set and are designed to fit in the compartments on either side of the engine in v-drive boats. The vdrive sacs are perfect for building massive wakeboarding and wakesurfing wakes. They are the same height and width, but shorter in length than the Fly High Fat Sac, which makes them a perfect fit in the smaller lockers of v-drive boats.
A pair of v-drive sacs also works great on either side of the engine in a direct drive boat for a great wakeboard wake, or put one on the side of the engine, and one between the engine and rear seat for a perfectly surfable wave.
What Fittings Are Included With This Bag?
This Fly High Pro X Series wakeboard ballast bag includes the necessary fittings for filling and draining using a portable wakeboard ballast pump; you do not need to purchase anything else.
Optional fittings are available to make the filling and draining process more convenient, see recommended accessories for more information. This wakeboard ballast bag can also be used in an integrated ballast system which requires additional wakeboard ballast fittings. If you have any questions please contact us.
Fly High Pro X Series wakeboard ballast bags were the first products designed from the ground up to be used in a wakeboard boat. Starting with a blank canvas, Fly High was able to rethink nearly every aspect of wakeboard ballast bag constructions and functionality. Gone are the day of two part construction, leaky waterbed connections, and fittings that are difficult to connect. By building their wakeboard ballast bags from a single layer of durable yet flexible vinyl, the same material that is used to build white water rafts, Fly High is able to offer unmatched strength and durability in an easy to use package.
Additionally, Fly High Pro X Series ballast bags feature multiple threaded ports that are built into the construction of the bag. Unlike the blue waterbed connections use on other brands, these strong ports feature durable threads and can be used with Fly High’s options fittings for compatibility with nearly any wakeboard ballast system you can imagine. Step up to the Fly High Pro X Series wakeboard ballast bags and experience the most convenient, durable and highest performing ballast bags on the market.

2004 Air Nautique TE
I think the actual fat sacs are great quality. I did have a issue with the threads on one of the sacs. The Wakemaker support guy saved the day by recommending that i leave the bag in the sun to soften up the thread and trying screwing in the plug cap. It worked like a charm, didn't have to return the sac.
2003 Mastercraft X2
I replaced my factory hard tanks (around 250 each)with the 400 lb V drive sacs and could not be happier.
It gave me more storage room when the sacs were empty and improved my wake greatly with the addition of the IBS. Never had a problem with leaks and the quick connects are great. I can disconnect one side and add it to the other for a great surf wake.
These are good supplemental ballast bags in conjunction with the 750 we run in the port locker. Since they're on the seats and exposed, I thought the black looked better, which thankfully doesn't get too hot in the sun (or at least we haven't noticed that yet). Air purge valves are helpful!
Just got the sacs for Christmas. They look tuff and strong connections for the pump. The stock ballasts are not enough and this should make a big difference. The people at Wakemakers were great to deal with and a very big help picking the right products.
bow ballast bags
I use these as bow bags in my 24 MXZ. I tether then to the side grab rails to keep them from rolling around. Made huge difference in the wave.
I used these along with the quick disconnects as plug and play in my 13 Malibu VTX. Huge difference over stock and made the wave much more ride-able on each side. Good quality materials and construction. I'm going to get a second set to get the bow down and hone in the wave even more.
The sacs are very heavily built and take their correct form when filled, quick connect makes filling and emptying easy. Big wake improvement for a reasonable price!
Perfect Fit in Supra 22SSV
The V-Drive Sac Set is a perfect fit in my 2003 Supra 22SSV. The quality and construction is far better than the original system. Original bags were leaking. I should have purchased Qwik Lok to sac thread fittings, as the bags seem to use a unique thread. Original garden hose thread fittings on the boat's automatic ballast system sort-of thread into the bag, but do not seal. I had to remove the forward panel in the right compartment to let the bag fit. This is a nice upgrade. The bags a are about twice the volume of the original system.
Achieved a much improved wake for Surfing, Wakeboarding, and Sky Skiing
My boat is a '96 Mastercraft Maristar 225. When weighted it's wake rivals the new high dollar wake boats. I regularly recruited all the large people "fat sacks" we could to build an awesome wake. Now with a set of Fly High Pro X Series V-Drive Sacs (one either side of the engine) and a Fly High Pro X Series Fat Brick
in the bow we are able to get that amazing wake even when we only have three in the boat.
great product, fits perfectly in my boat just like you told me. only drawback is that there is no check valve, it has to be ordered separately.
Noticeable Wake Improvement
We have a 2007 Centurion Lightning. We added these to our arsenal of ballast and the improvement is definitely noticeable. Not only for the Wakeboarders but also for the Wakesurfers. We no longer hear that our Wake sucks. It was also a little easier to attract those spotters into our boat. Our Son-in-law is getting so much more air now he actually cracked his board on a landing. OH well. Yeah he got a new board and went right back at it. :-) For surfing the wake wave is higher and longer with a lot more area to throw down some tricks. Just pure fun.
Stopped some of the complaints
We have had a '92 Ski Nautique for about 17 years and since my kids were born. They ride behind friends X-stars etc.. and always complain about our wake. Since I love my boat and don't want to give up my ski wake I thought I would try a couple of these to stop some of the whining. With both filled on either side of the engine compartment the wake is noticably larger and has a steeper ramp. My son easily cleared both wakes on his first try. Before he had to try a little harder. The sacs are well constructed and with the pump we can switch back and forth between skiing and boarding pretty quick.
fattest sacs around!!!!
I got these to throw in my walkway of my 01 SAN if there are only a couple of us riding. I throw one in the walkway in the nose and one sideways in front of the back seat. They are super durable and hold their shape. These on top of my 3000lb ballast system make for a good time!!!
Versitile sacs are great!
Put a pair of these under the open bow of my 87 SunSport DD! Very nice setup if you have a large open bow Direct Drive like me. Both sacs are hidden and I still have lots of bow space. With these sacs I can sink the bow for a big wakeboard wake, or I can leave one side full and the other sac empty to create a finely tuned surf wave. Highly recommended over other brands, much higher quality and lots of fittings. Here are my pics: http://photos.wakeboarder.com/showgallery.php/ppuser/35518/cat/500
best sacs ever
For the price you can’t beat these two sacs. They transformed the wake on my boat so much I didn’t know what to do. They will fit in any v-drive locker but I actually use them in a Tige 22i that has side compartments and they work great. We stack them on one side for surfing but if you have a V-drive I would defiantly buy two of the original Fat sacs that hold 750+.
