Eight.3 Ballast Bags VS Fly High Pro X Series Ballast Bags

Posted on January 23rd, 2014 by | posted in Gear

This is an excellent way to push products to market and Ronix should be grateful for the opportunity to compete with the undisputed champion of the world, Fly High. I do not see this as a battle of brands but more of a battle between two of the water sports industries leading men. In the south corner we have Paul O’Brien and in the North corner, a world barefoot champion, Mike Seipel.

Eight.3, is an entirely new way to fill and drain ballast bags. It is incredibly fast but there is more. Ronix, the men and women behind this new product line are fully engaged in what their riders and customers really needed. These things are build for speed and that is exactly what they will provide. The only downer we have is that the system does allow for a little more water to drip into the boat while filling and draining. This is due to the massive volume that runs into the sac when the 3700 gph pump is connected and disconnected to the bag. Turns out we can live with this. Even if we stopped to clean up a little water we are still a rider ahead of the boat next to us. For that we are great full and joyous.

Finally, the wake boat industry has a wake enhancing product on the market that is designed by a Wakeboard / Wakesurf manufacturer. WakeMakers.com announced last week that the new Ronix Eight.3 Plug and Play ballast bags are now in stock. They look amazing but what everyone wants to know is… When will those telescope bags arrive? WakeMakers said not to worry. It is looking like the first week of September before they will see a delivery to their Bend, Oregon warehouse.

Making A High End Radar Ski In The Barn

Posted on November 7th, 2012 by | posted in Gear





This is a great video showing how each high end Radar Water Ski is constructed from start to finish. The operation takes place in a little barn on the O’Brien Lake property. Herb has perfected the compression molding manufacturing process. It is amazing how much detail goes into a ski. They are still hand made in the USA giving the engineers the ability to make changes on the fly. Just another way that Squareone Dist. goes above and beyond to give customers the best possible products to ultimately progress the sport of water skiing.
