    How much weight should I put in the rear of my 2004 Dodge 2500 QC/SB to perform with a 8'2" Poly V?

    Basically what is the ideal amount and what would be the very minimal?

    I am asking since a local store here has a ballast bag which straps to the tie downs and can hold about 300lbs per bag in which you fill yourself...

    I had 750 lbs with my 9'2" V and it seemed perfect. I'd say get 2 of those bags and call it good. I would like to see these bags, do you have a link to a picture or anything?
