    Running mid 80s, takes alot more out of you physically than even mid 70s. If your body can withstand miles upon miles of it, all the power to you. Like others have said knocking on the limiter for prolonged periods never a good idea.

    if ur bouncing of the limiter then u need to repitch your prop or raise ur limiter...sounds like you have something wrong...my limiter is set at 9500r's i run between 9100-9200r's depending on the day and time of year...i'm never on the limiter

    yep ur running a gp not a fx big difference my buddy's gp 1800 will turn 91+ sitting on the seat he wont super man either. my best was a 89.6 but never backed it up as far as i can say there's only couple fx with a 17lb wheel that ever hit 89+ and any fx with a 17lb wheel in the 88 mph range is a solid ski even though u feel its not...and i did say up to a mile. not meaning exactly a mile if u want to get exact i would say 1/2 a mile maybe, sometimes more depending on how smooth the water is...in the statement i made i was talking about the ski not pushing oil out of the catch can on speed runs up to a mile i felt it was safe...r u with it now

    Sounds dangerous Supermaning on a ski, must be hard on the meat and two vegs. If you hit a wave doing the Superman that could put you in some real pain and land you in the hospital with a testicular torsion. I have been winded just sitting, and then losing my footing after hitting a unexpected wave from a wakeboard boat.

    yea it can be...thats why we'll go the end of the lake or find a cove where there is nobody around no boats or jetskis. at these speed if u catch something u might go for a ride if your doing a superman. its not that often I do it, u need perfect water, glass with just a bit of wind ripple...I cough something once, it made me get up and out of it real quick.

    And your ski is in the 80+ club ... if things go wrong ...it go wrong real fast at those speeds.

    Are these guys Supermaning for higher speeds some how or just the thrill of it?

    I don't run my boat wide open for to long same as a ski.

    short bursts wide open to pass, test, race someone.. and then back down in the rpms...

    that is the best for a modded ski short burst 1/2 mile or less I agree with that but at times i'll go for a long hard ride. like I said before I done a 3-4 mile run my ski twice and both times it pushed oil out my catch can. now my buddy's gp 1800 svho 91 mph ski doesnt push oil and he'll run the piss out of it long runs. beats me I guess some are more prone to do it than others my boat i'll hold it open longer 1-2 miles its a stock 496. yea the superman is a way to get a little more speed out of a ski not safe but...it is what it is and im old
