Well now...there are a lot of pickle forks coming to a lake near you and they won't be MC's.

So far the list is
MB Tomcat F23 (http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/342299.html?1152744869)
Tige RZ2 (http://www.wakeworld.com/getarticle.asp?articleid=790)

MC's still look far better in my opinion. I'll pass on posting pics, you guys will have to search them out.

Oh pickles is an expletive from Little Einstiens. My son says it all the time and I can't get it out of my head.

Im a member on Wakeworld and there is some serious teenage-girl bickering going on about these new models! Just goes to show what company is the real leader and innovator...

The Tige looks cool if you're really into Speed Racer and the Mach5 in black.

I'm not sure that the MB will float.

No kidding! Many of them need something to rag on now that they're bummed their brand will have ugly vented windshields.

My jury is still out on both boats as the true test of a wakeboard boat is the WAKE it puts out. And neither has been seen.

I am not a fan of the pickle looking like an offshore racer but I commend them on trying something out there on the tower. There is a good idea in there somewhere for the tower but it came out like a bad acid trip. The best thing about this boat is the gas filler in the rear so it can be filled from either side.

As far as the Tige goes, I am not a fan. It has no internal ballast from the factory. No ballast in a WAKEboard boat is the equivalent of having ballast in a slalom boat (counterproductive). The second problem I have is the vents on the pickle fork. Those are going to get stepped on and they will break. Bad idea. The lines on the boat look good but without ballast I wouldn't waste my money.

One thing I do like on both boats is the transom. They have given the wakeboarder a solid place to sit while strapping in. I personally don't need to sit down but a beginner needs it bad.

I think the pickle fork front, on every boat I have seen, is awesome.

I don't know how it affects the wake or performance of the boat, but man is it usable.

Take the new 209 which is supposed to be over 21 feet long, chop a foot or so off making it a pickle fork WITHOUT sacrificing the performance or wake....and I am in!!!!

I actually really like the look, and the time I spent in Xstar made me a believer.

Again, I have no idea what it does to performance but if it doesn't negatively impact anything else I want it!!!

And the verdict is.....

it floats :eek:

I like how they tried something different with the tower... and definately think it looks better in the water in a solid color than on the trailer.

My 3 year old said it was Einstiens yesterday. I asked him again this morning if it was from Einstiens. He said, "YES! Oh, pickles! um ...no, it's from, it's from Heros!" So look at that, you're a genius wakespecialty. You are smarter than my son:uglyhamme I prefer to play with my kids more than watch TV together. They prefer it too.

I hope you are kidding. I know it sounds stupid to the uninitiated, but try using smilies to show your tone. Like :mad: this when you want to be a d***k, or :D this when you're kidding.
