Sea Ray's don't have a massive deep v so I presume you wanna plane earlier or keep the nose down rather than control side to side. Either way I think lenco tabs are such a simple and easy system. I've also had to go through warranty repair and they we're faultless at replacing gear.

Bennett are other big make. Their hydraulic systems are what the old school rock. They are very slow and lots of weight. They also seem to be swapping to electric now too.

Lots of eBay offers. I got mine from states for about half price.
