Fly High Air Release Bag Plug W749
The Air Release plug is a direct replacement for the standard ballast plug used with Fly High wakeboard ballast bags, but allows you to easily "burp" excess air out of the bag by simply loosening the fitting slightly. You don't have to completely remove the fitting from the bag, and you don't have to worry about spilling a lot of water, just loosen to vent, and then tighten back down.
Perfect if you manually fill and drain your ballast bags with a Tsunami pump to ensure you get the maximum amount of water in each bag.
Fly High ballast fittings have been designed with you in mind. All of the fittings make connecting pumps and hoses to your Fly High Pro X Series Ballast Sacs™ a quick and simple task. No more struggling with old waterbed valves and water spilling inside the boat. Simply twist, pull, replace and you're ready to go! Fly High offers several different fittings that all work together to adapt to any of your needs.
Great air release
Works great for getting the air out letting the sac fill with maximum water for max weight
Nice to vent bags manually
These work well to vent bags manually without spilling much water.
Installed the 1180lb ballast bag and was getting air pockets. After using this item once, almost all of the air was gone. Now when the bag empties, there is no air left in it. And so when I fill it, it doesn't developed air pockets. Highly recommend this product to get ballast bag filled all the way. You may have air pockets that you don't even realize and then you are not getting the full weight of your ballast. I am ordering 2 more for my other sacs.
Almost good enough
I wasn't as satisfied with how quickly the air could be vented from a bag in serious need of burping (like most of my surf bags). The vent hole is just too small. My solution: Drill 3 more holes in there. Now it works great!
Works Like A Charm
I really like these plugs. They work perfect when I am trying to get the most out of my Jumbo Surf Sac in the rear locker of my VLX. Just a quarter turn will allow you to bleed all of the air out of the bag.
This is a handy part for a cheap price. It allows air to escape from the bag without the need to remove the plug and have water spill.
This makes filling bags so much easier!
