Why is the TurboSwing suitable for water skiing?
Water skiers want a low flat wake and a directionally stable boat.
A towing bridle is far from ideal for a sports boat or RIB and neither is a ski pole, because the high attachment point for the tow rope leads to an unstable boat, a slow start and an unpleasantly high wake.
Advantages when water skiing
The ideal height of the tow rope is hip high, certainly for the slalom, and this is the height of the TurboSwing. The TurboSwing tow bar offers perfect directional stability, optimal response and a tow rope that stays well above the wake. The boat has a better balance and rides flatter on the water, irrespective of its speed, and the skier can make much smoother carving turns.
Why is the TurboSwing suitable for wakeboarding?
Wakeboarders want a directionally stable boat, a high attachment point for the tow rope and a high constant wake. A towing bridle is not an option, neither is a ski pole. It is true that a ski pole provides a higher attachment point, but it leads to an unstable boat and an unstable, variable wake.
Advantages when wakeboarding
Thanks to the TurboSwing tow bar, the attachment point for the tow rope can be adjusted to the top of the motor. This offers perfect directional stability, optimum response and the boat remains better in balance. Because steering adjustments are hardly or no longer required, an additional 10 - 20 HP is available for trimming out the motor, and therefore for raising the height of the wake.
Advantages for the wakeboarder
For the wakeboarder: the TurboSwing makes his or her movements and tricks much smoother than when a towing bridle or ski pole is used. The attachment point of the tow rope is not as high as when a ski pole is used, but the TurboSwing makes it possible to create a higher and much more stable wake: the basis for high jumps and great tricks.
