Boat manufacturers are giving the big thumbs down to these 10 foot tows.
How dangerous are they. What have been your expiences with them? When are
they really good? ...bad?
I have never had a problem with this set-up or know any body who has.
The Skylon gives you more air and better "Hang Time" whilst doing ariel
tricks or flips...there is no obvious downward pull that you get on a

They are attached to the bow via straps. Those straps help take the load
off. I've boarded behind one and they are great. Kind of expensive but
real nice. They don't pull you down like a normal pylon.

A typical pylon is about 3 feet tall. Tripple that and you
triple the force applied to the pylon mount/base.
I can hardly believe that the pylon handles the amount
of force it does right now. Triple? Not in my boat thanks.
You want air, learn how to get air off the wake or take
By the way any sideways pull is absorbed by the boat, ie,the boat tips
towards the side being pulled, this makes for funky handling but lets face
it tj this is for fun not a mathematical equation.

BONUS!!! You can fit more chicks in your boat without the worry of the line wrapping around their necks or hitting
them, since the line is now well above. It also works well with picture shoots.
