Anyone out there have some information to contribute, about how much towline tension a SL skier generates?
Some years back, Dave Benzel had a computer-interfaced system, that measured tension and other factors.
I did some work at times with a Dillon Force Gage. Eay back, Jim Sylvester (AWSA President, Technical Committee)
did some measurements in the 1960s.
I have heard a figure in the range of 900 lbs. max. Don't know if this is accurate; sounds like a lot.
