After seeing the video of what appears to be gates dissappearing at 41, I thought I'd see what it looks like to go through gates at 36mph and 41 off. If you have never done this, I recommend it.
With a Mastercraft, it looks like (at the moment you turn in and commit to your gate shot) the ball is in the trough, UNDER the water and moving, or with very little showing. Other visions of it are difficult as it is fairly submerged (and displaced), and camouglauged with white water. .... VERY DIFFICULT
to see. By the time the ball comes back to the surface, it's too late.
I suppose that the pros are used to this sight, but it sure was an eye opener to see. I highly recommend trying it to get an understanding of what they have to deal with.
