Q:The rope looks thinner in the picture, is the rope the same thickness as any other tow rope?Asked on 7/26/2015 by Justin from Illinois
A:The rope on the booster ball is 9/16" diameter and is designed for up to 4 riders with a break strength of 4,100 lbs.Answered on 7/27/2015 by Product Expert from Overton's
Q:Does the booster ball inflate and deflate, if not inflatable appears it would take up a lot of storage area. I need 3 of themAsked on 5/7/2015 by Cap'n D from Levelland tx
A:Yes. The Booster Ball inflates and deflates just like a towable. It has a large Speed Valve which allows you to quickly inflate or deflate it.Answered on 5/8/2015 by Product Expert from Overtons
Q:I have a 3 person airglide that tows in both directions. Problem I am having, when we try chariot style towing, air glide submarines. I feel this is due to the low hook up on our boat off of the swim platform it is very close to water line. Would this product fix the problem or do I need a different fix?Asked on 7/5/2012 by MT Pockets JR from Chain of Lakes Boater
A:Submerging towables are an issue of under inflation. This product will not solve the problem of a submarining towable. You need to do the inflation test to make sure that your towable is inflated fully. The test is that after you think it is fully inflated, you stand on it and if you sink farther than an inch, it is under infalted. Electric inflators usually fill a tube up to 85%-90% inflated. To get the other 10-15% you need to also use a hand or foot pump to finish inflating.Answered on 10/29/2012 by Justin M. from Overton's
A:This is a common problem with many different towables, and our suppliers have researched what causes the problem. It has nothing to do with where the tow point is surprisingly. All of our different towable suppliers have found that the problem is caused by under inflation of the towable. If you do not believe me call kwik tek or O'Brien and ask then for yourself.
If you inflate the towable to where you think it is full do this test. Stand on the towable and if you can push it down farther than an inch it is underinflated. Always finish inflating with a hand or foot pump, and get it as full of air as possible.Answered on 10/18/2012 by Justin M. from Overton's
Q:My kids enjoy double tubing. Can this product be used for towing double tubes? Would I need 2 booster balls?Asked on 8/11/2009 by Brad from NH
A:We do not recommend ever towing two tubes at the same timeAnswered on 8/14/2009 by Ike from Overtons
A:Yes. That's just what I did. Works fine for one or two. For two towables, just order an extra rope and attach at the "ball" to the second towable. Keeps line out of the wake using the much stronger transom mount on my 4 Winns. Ball didn't show any problem with having two towables on it.Answered on 11/17/2009 by CR from Canyon Lake, TX
A:thats what I was planning to do but one person on this site pulls two tubes with one ball. The rope seems strong enough. But will the ball pull two double tubes. Does the Manufacture know the answer.Answered on 3/1/2010 by Crownline 260LS from Tulsa Ok.

Q:I have a champion bass boat and kids who enjoy tubing. The rope connection is down on each side of the motor virtually underwater. I thought I could find a mount to screw into rear seat base for towing. But this product might allow for my connection and eliminate rope drag in the water. Do you attach your tow rope to this product. Maybe the product is capable of towing without additional rope.Asked on 5/26/2009 by Tree from Lexington, SC.
A:The Booster Ball has the tow rope in the front and back.
You do not need another rope.Answered on 5/27/2009 by Ike from Overtons
A:On my Tracker Targa bass boat I had the same problem. The Booster Ball eliminated the rope drag. It comes with 30 feet of tow rope off each end of the ball (total length 60ft) and it worked great. Both my kids said it made a huge difference.Answered on 6/5/2009 by Mo. Boater from Lake St. Louis, Mo
