Why is the Turbo Swing 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 Turbo Swing. The Turbo Swing 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.

The Turbo Swing is a replacement and improvement on the standard ski pole that provides more directional stability and up to 20 hp more pull force. The bar extends outwards and protects the motor making it suitable for all brands of outboard motors. The turbo swing is great for wake boarders as it provides a stable boat, and a constant wake. The turbo swing is also great for tubing. Ski poles and towing bridles can't handle the stress of high peak loads like a turbo swing can, so when there are 2 or 3 people going high speed through the turn, the obvious choice is a Turbo Swing.
