    Well I'm finally getting around to improving this ballast system like others have done. I love everything about this kit except it doesn't come with a vent for the midship bags and this has caused me fill headaches ever since installing it. Thanks to those of you on here and the Supra/Moomba Owners group for sharing your insight and tips on adding a vent. Today my fittings and hose arrived from Wakemakers and I decided to make a video explaining the issues and how the vent should hopefully resolve the issue with lots of pressure and nowhere for it to go unless you manually vent the midship, which gets old for sure. That way anyone that runs across this thread will see there is still some improvement that can be made to the Max's WM bag buster kit. I'll have an install video in the coming weeks once I get back down to the boat.

    link doesn't work for me. Looking forward to seeing how you did the vents. I get some air in my rear bags.

    yea, i can access it from youtube. The vents that are in the top of the wakemakers bag (as well as the oem bags) really don't work at all for me. I still get air trapped in the top of the bag. Does that seem to be the case for most people or are those vents supposed to completely allow all the air to come out without unscrewing them? I can't tell if you are suppose to unscrew them to let the air out or if they are suppose to "auto" vent?

    You have to loosen them to allow the air to escape. If you look there's a little hole drilled through the threads and once you loosen it a bit it can vent. You then have to tighten them back.
    They suck imo
    Put a vent line in and call it a day
