Eight.3 Ronix 400 Telescope Ballast Bag & Pump (400 lb)
The Ronix Eight.3 Telescope CTN (400 lbs) V-Drive Sac is designed to fit in the rear compartment of any v-drive boat. This ballast bag is a great choice for those that demand high performance but are looking for a non-integrated ballast system. It is also popular among those with a direct drive boat due to its versatile shape and size, helping make it a great fit for most boats. The width of the bag tapers from being the widest at the bottom to create a trapezoidal shape which Ronix deemed “anti-roll technology”. This helps prevent the bag from moving around while filling/draining or when the boat is in motion. These bags are constructed from the same materials used to build white water rafts.
The newest version of the Eight.3 portable ballast pump by Ronix was designed with one thing in mind, pure unadulterated speed. The Eight.3 Telescope pump is made to be dropped either over the side of the boat for filling or directly into your telescoping ballast bag for draining. The fire hose style flow is facilitated by the industries largest 1-1/2” reinforced non-kinking hose.
Eight.3 ballast systems are not designed to be integrated and are for serious riders that do not have time to wait for ballast to fill and drain. When combined with an Eight.3 Telescoping 400, 800 or 1100 ballast bag you will have the fastest pump based ballast system on the lake. This pump is not compatible with any Fly High Quick Connect Fittings or the Straight Line link system and cannot be integrated into your boat.
WARNING: Ballast pumps do not float and need to be secured to a ballast bag before entering the water. An unsecured pump may end up at the bottom of the lake.
How Eight.3 Telescope Works
Using the Ronix Telescope pump is easy. Fill and drain your new Ronix Telescope bags in a fraction of the time that you are used to.
To fill simply connect the male fitting on the end of the hose to the quick fill port on the top of the bag. Don't worry about spilling any water as there is a built-in check valve to eliminate spills even when the bag is overfilled.
To drain the bag start by pulling the top cover away from the telescoping drain tube and pull it out of the bag. Once the tube is above the waterline of the sac unzip the entry point and place the pump body into the bag. Zip the drain port around the hose to minimize the risk of water spilling out as the bag is drained.
By sourcing a new high strength vinyl material, Ronix now has the strongest ballast bag on the market. All seams and inserts are sonic welded to maintain the highest structural integrity. The telescoping drain port has a waterproof zipper similar to what is found on a dry suit.
There are three 1" Plug and Play ports on the new Eight.3 bags which will allow for system integration. One drain port on each end and one fill/vent port on the top of the bag. Riders looking to fill their bags three times faster will like the huge quick fill port on top right next to the telescoping drain hood.
Ronix has scrapped the traditional square or round shape for a new and improved trapezoid shape. This provides a base that stops the bag from wanting to roll when filling and draining. This feature alone will help boat owners that don't want to monitor their sacs more than they do their own children.
