Help with Tournament Water Skiing Accessories

Hi Guys

I am needing to buy a whole lots of new bouys for our slalom course. Which are the best to buy and best colours to use?  I was thinking of using the Overton's Boat Guide Buoys, 6" x 14" with hold-downs for the boat path, and for skiers bouys either the Overton's Gladiator® Inflatable Slalom Buoys, 9" dia. or the Polyform Slalom buoys from www.skiertoskier.com

For the Boat Video camera does it need to be high up for tricks and slalom or if is acceptable to use the Trakker P4 from www.wakevideo.com

For All the slalom cameras, should i use a 4 channel dvr with one big screen that's connected to my four slalom camera's?

Thanks

Re: Help with Tournament Water Skiing Accessories

is the tracker good for shortlines?  35-41,  I have heard that it isn't awesome for those lengths.

Re: Help with Tournament Water Skiing Accessories

I would talk to your Chief Judge and Technical Controller. That would be the easiest way to find out what kind of equipment would be ideal.

From what I've seen, the Polyform buoys are very nice.

Re: Help with Tournament Water Skiing Accessories

All things being equal (and they are when you order 16 buoys) the polyform are the better of the 3 buoys.
