  • Sport Jet Reverse close up ...

    The guys at The Boat Shop did a nice job with the reverse video they posted...the link below is a video that takes a peek at the bucket a bit differently...

    I'm pretty comfortable behind the camera, but in this vid you'll have to endure actually seeing me in front of the camera, so a word of caution, don't watch if you've just ate, I don't want you to lose your lunch...

    If you make it through the intro and hang in there until the 2 minute mark, you'll see a couple sport jets perform what I think is the worlds slowest drag race....although it isn't exciting, it does illustrate just how much more thrust the new bucket has...

    Here's the link...

                TJM, on your video you show only yourself in the boat while using the stock bucket but with the new reverse bucket you have ~250lb guy sitting on the engine compartment along with your dog putting much more weight on the stern. Not a good comparison is it? When we were on the Knik, everyone had to step to the back to get the boat to come off the shore. The Boat shop test used two different boats in their test as well. I believe the wooly bucket boat had UHMW on the bottom. Not sure about the other boat. Would have been better if they used the same boat for each comparison.

                  Me personally I would think that the video shows how much better the new bucket is with having more weight in the boat. If it can back up that fast with that much more weight in it, it must be a bad ***** product. I don't see how anyone could argue that. Unless it's someone who just can't stand seeing another brand of boat improving on an already great platform. :topjob:

                      Wow, you finally saved up enough cereal box tops to get your inspector gadget secret decoder ring !!! ... and you didn't waste any time putting it to work did you?



                      I know you're not attempting to accuse me of being misleading or dishonest, so I have to assume you're just confused...perhaps I can clear it up a bit...

                      your powers of perception are amazing, but your powers of assumption are a bit off...

                      the first scene at 3:15 has the extra body in the middle of the boat and my dog right behind the driver...

                      the scene at 3:45 has the extra body in the back of the boat and my dog right behind the driver....

                      the scene at 5:02 has the extra body in the front of the boat and my dog right behind the driver...

                      can you see what we were 'testing' there? ...we were trying to see if the weight distribution had any affect on the reverse....we concluded that we didn't have enough weight in the boat to make any conclusions as it had no noticable affect with just shifting one guy around...

                      actually, the comparison is quite good, especially at 2:15 when the 2 boats are side by side in reverse...but the best comparison will be the opinions of those that try it...

                      if you remember, I was the first one to call them out on it...it is important that no one is mislead....and quite frankly Mel, it is bullsh!!t for you to try to make it seem as if that is what is going on...

                      this isn't rocket science here, the reverse is improved dramatically....if you are interested, get some seat time in the SJ powered phantom, then borrow my bucket and see the difference, then make any comments/reviews you want...but until you feel the difference you really have no idea....

                        It will be on my boat...but I'll happily take it off while we're up there if you are wanting to try it out...

                          heres a thought Mel instead knocking everything everyone is doing why don't you make your (I mean garret) bucket and then go out a make you own video yourself. It so old listening to you knocked everything.....
                          Do I give my friends advice? Jesus, no. They wouldn't take advice from me. Nobody should take advice from me. I haven't got a clue about anything..

                            Our test boats at the Boat shop were identical boats, both with umhw. Thats why we used them.
                            If there was any disadvantage it was with the Wooly bucket as we had two peaple up front.
                            On the TJM video Wooldridge does not offer a uhmw bottom.
                            Even with slightly different boats it is to big a difference in performance to not see.
                            If you have a sportjet powered boat you know what your reverse is capable of.
                            Come by the shop and try a boat with the new bucket and make up your own mind.

                              Mike, I'm not knocking, just stating the obvious in the video and the personal observation that doesn't compare to how the boat shop's video showed how well the bucket worked compared to how it worked on the Knik. Different boats so maybe thats the reason. As I said before the bucket is a definite improvement. How it performs on a tunnel would be nice to see.

                              The other thing is maybe those that want to promote products on the forum should pony up as fund the site.
