Expand the capacity of the standard ballast system in Tige wakeboard boats.


Our exclusive Tigé Pigyback ballast upgrade allows you to add up to 1,100 pounds of additional wakeboard ballast (depending on boat model) to the existing ballast system in your boat.

WakeMAKERS PiggyBack Packages are designed to integrate with your factory ballast system, and are controlled using the switches on your dash or the new TigéTouch to keep it completely automated and effortless to use.

Better wake for your Tige wakeboard boat Small Cost, Huge Payoff Our Tigé Piggyback systems are designed to be affordable to buy, simple to install, easy to use, but have a huge impact on the size and quality of the wake. This picture shows what a single 400 pound Piggyback system installed in a 2010 Tigé RZ2 will look like... who wouldn't want a wake like that? Superb for wakeboarding, and even more impressive for surfing, this is without a doubt the easiest way to completely transform your boat's wake.

Be on the water sooner Less Time Waiting, More Time Riding No one wants to sit around filling and draining ballast bags all day, which is why our Piggyback system integrate with the factory ballast system in your boat, so everything is completely automated. Actual times will depend on the bag size you select, but even the largest option we offer will completely fill or drain in less than 15 minutes, and all without you leaving the driver's seat.

Quick Connect Fittings For Easy Removal Think Quick For Easy Removal We include our exclusive Flow-Rite quick connect fittings system with every factory ballast upgrade we offer, so you can remove the bag in seconds whenever you want. Thanks to the unique, water-tight, two part connector it's easy to pull a bag out for cleaning, storage or winterization. And when you're ready to go ride just drop it back in place and re-attach the dedicated connections.

Wakeboard ballast upgrades designed specifically for Tige' Boats One Size Does Not Fit All Every boat manufacturer does things differently, which is why our factory ballast upgrades are designed to work specifically with a single brand. That means installation is a breeze, and everything will functional exactly like you expect.

How It Works

The Tigé PiggyBack Ballast System is designed to make use of the existing pumps, hoses and switches in your Tigé boat, to expand the capacity of your factory rear ballast tanks from 250lbs. up to an incredible 1,000 lbs. This kit includes everything needed for the installation, including a replacement Fly High Pro X Series ballast big (choose your capacity), Fly High quick connect fittings, all necessary fittings and adapters, hose and installation guide.

As the name implies, this ballast system add-on is connected inline with the overflow of the factory ballast tank, allowing it to PiggyBack on the factory system. In the factory configuration when the in-floor hard tank is full excess water is dumped overboard through the vent hose. With the PiggyBack system installed, excess water from the hard tank flows into the Fly High ballast bag, allowing it to fill after the factory tank is full. Once the new bag is full (which means the factory tank is full), excess water will flow out of the overflow of the bag, and through the factory thru-hull connector, allowing the system to function exactly the same as the stock ballast setup, but with the additional capacity of the auxiliary ballast bag.

Draining is exactly the opposite; as the factory drain pump removes water from the tank, gravity forces water out of the Fly High bag and into the hard tank until both ballast bag and tank are both empty.


Installation requires a few simple and completely reversible changes be made to the plumbing of the stock ballast system in order to connect the Piggyback kit. The one time process typically takes less than 45 minutes. Once installed, you never need to hassle with ballast bags and pumps again. Completely control the system with the factory controls on the dash. Forget about getting up to adjust valves that control the flow, or any manual involvement at all. Just hit the switch and the system will fill and drain exactly as the factory Tige ballast system currently does.

ATTENTION: This factory ballast upgrade kit is sold individually. We sell systems individually so that customers can upgrade just one side of the boat for surfing if they would like. You will need to purchase two systems if you want additional ballast on both sides of the boat for wakeboarding or surfing regular and goofy. Contact us if you have any questions or need help determining the correct upgrade for your application.
