Hi guys - I'm looking for direction here. I've searched other posts and some of them get a little to technical for me. My dad picked up a used 2006 Response LXI last year. It has the paddle wheel version of Wakeboard Pro. We want to upgrade him to Stargazer this spring. I have the Wakeboard Pro Stargazer Version on my 2005 Response LX. We are amateur skiers skiing anywhere from 15 to 28 off with a course on our lake. We don't ski at the official speeds as we pick speeds inbetween. We're going anywhere from 30 to 34 mph running in Wakeboard mode. There are also other boats on our lake running the same way.
With that being said we've all experienced surging at times and some have said it's better to upgrade to PP 3 Event and run in Slalom Practice mode cause you can pick any speed you want right? There is also a Wakeboard Mode built into 3 Event from what I can tell as here and there we'll load up the Response with fat sacs so my brother can board.
So with all this info is it just better to get the 3 Event Version and run it in Slalom Practice Mode or is it ok to purchase the Wakeboard Version (it's a little cheaper) and run it in Wakeboard mode for Slalom Skiing? From reading through the manuals I'm thinking of the 3 Event Version. If we go that route what are the small speed changes that are allowed? .5 MPH?
I'm also thinking of upgrading my Wakeboard S to 3 Event.
Thanks for the help in advance!!!
