Hey Billy,

If you are looking for a slalom boat the 209 is not it. The 209 is an awesome ride with lots of room, but not nearly the slalom boat that your 205 is. How are the binding working out you got from me?

As said above the 209/X9 has a ton of room in it for a DD boat. The size sacrifices the slalom wake. But for a DD family oriented boat I'd give it two thumbs up. If you want to hit the course often this is not the boat for you.

Comprende?
