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.
