Called Wake Makers after 4 year old ballast bag developed a leak around one of the ports. Great service and no question discount on new bag (they gave me partial warranty). Fast shipping and I had the new one change out in my boat within a week. I even ordered a couple other things from them while I was at it!
WakeMAKERS UniversalFIT Rear Locker Ballast Bags (Multiple Sizes)
Our exclusive WakeMAKERS UniversalFIT Rear Locker Ballast Bags are making a splash in the industry and forever changing how boaters look at ballast bags. The team of product designers and engineers at WakeMAKERS agreed that a 'one-size fits all' approach that other brands are taking isn't good enough. Seeking a better ballast solution than standard sized bags, we developed our series of UniversalFIT ballast bags, designed for specific zones of your boat and offered in incremental sizes to give you better fitment and improved wake performance.
Ranging from 400 to 1,200 lbs. in size, the UniversalFIT Rear Locker bags allow you to choose the dimensions of the bag in 5" increments. The result is a much better fitting bag for your boat's rear locker, allowing you to fill to capacity and maximize added weight for the best possible wake. WakeMAKERS UniversalFIT ballast bags give you a nearly perfect fit without the expense of building a custom bag.
All WakeMAKERS ballast bags come standard with an industry-leading two year warranty. The bags are constructed of a DuraTEK, our proprietary material that is strong, durable, and puncture resistant. Once the material is cut, the bags are RF welded together with 1" seams to ensure a clean look and watertight seal. There are five 1" NPT ports on this ballast bag that feature a tapered thread pattern and bottom o-ring for a leak-free seal. The larger port size allows water to flow quicker for faster fill/drain times.
If you are shopping for ballast bags to put in the rear lockers of your v-drive boat, the WakeMAKERS UniversalFIT ballast bags are a no-brainer decision. From the quality craftsmanship to the innovative design, these ballast bags are built to deliver improved wakes behind your boat.
Sold individually as seen here, these bags are also included our WakeMAKERS exclusive Factory Ballast Upgrades that integrate the bags into your boat's factory ballast system for automated filling/draining. Use the dropdown tool to find available factory ballast upgrades for your year, make, and model boat.

Great Product and Great Service
Bags fit good and construction seems very nice. Might plumb in a vent to my factory vents but not so sure.
Great bag, perfect size for our boat, boosted wave
This bag combined with the universal ski locker bag( 1090lbs total) doubled the size of the surf wake. Great product but if it’s on the floor instead of locker, it doesn’t hold its shape or stand up like the picture. Constant adjustment while filling helped and I figured some tricks to keep it from rolling or falling over. Other than that, it’s worth it’s weight in gold.
High Quality Bags
It was an iterative process, but have landed with a pair of the 35"L x25"W x20"H (710lbs) and I am quite happy with them. These are for a 2006 Mastercraft X15. I originally bought the 45"L x25"W x20"H (910lbs) thinking they would fill some of the area under the seats in front of the lockers, but after test fitting them in the boat, it did not seem to be a good way to go. It looked like this approach was going to cause excessive wear on the bags and the boat over time. The 35"L x25"W x20"H (710lbs) bags look to be a much better fit for the long term. I also highly recommend the engine divider reinforcement kit. Adding heavy bags to the rear lockers definitely cause bending/bowing of the engine dividers, and the reinforcements become very important. A final note on this purchase is that I now am shopping for a new prop because with all ballast full, my boat barely gets to 10mph at full throttle.
