Not sure what that says about the way they test and the results they get)<

The gentleman that leases our club's lake has the Accuski system in his
97 Nautique.  While I haven't skied behind it personally, I have heard
nothing but praise for it - in fact they are installing Accuski in the
club boat (A 94 MasterCraft that has pulled 2 World Records) tommorow.
Reports are that you get smooth pulls with time variation of no more
than 3 to 4 one-hundreths.  That's pulling anything from Wallys to Open
rated skiers.  Additionally, my information shows that Andy Mapple just
set a new tour record, 2 1/2 at 41 off, at the Charleston Pro Tour Stop
using an Accuski speed control - and, there were no re-rides.

Having not skied behind either, as of yet, I won't sing praises for
either.  But I will defend Accuski, because everything I have seen
documented shows it is a great system.  If WaterSki Magazine had a
problem with it, it must have been because of JetSkis in the course OR
the tube they were pulling behind the boat.........but you'll probably
do fine with either.  Happy skiing - John

I also have a friend that has Accuski and their timing system installed in
a 97 Nautique. He skis into 38 off and loves it. The only problem he can
find with it is if you fall early in the pass it will give you a fast
time.

If you fall early, at 1 or 4 ball, you can push the down button once
to simulate the driver backing off the throttle.
