Just ordered an attatude ajustment plate for my 2007 X2 an was wanting some feed back on how it worked for skiing an did it make the wake flater. My skiing abilty is not so good an was hopeing this would flatten the wake. Any feed back would be helpfull. Pro or con thanks

I tested it on an X45, and it was fantastic. The boat went from having the hugest and best shaped wake for wakeboarding I'd ever seen to having the smoothest wake I've ever seen for skiing, it was unbelievable. I assume it would also help out of hole speed, but all of this depends on the boat, since the X2 might already be sitting in the water the best way for skiing, I don't know the X2. But for a boat that can use it, even as large as the X-45, it was fantastic.

Based on my conversations with the dealer in Denver it does not make a dramatic difference on a boat as small as the X2. My 08' X2 is coming in without the plate but I'd be eager to hear if ya'll think it does in fact make a noticeable difference in wake size/shape.

I have a 07 X2 with the plate --the difference is very noticable (in fact, I can immediately tell if I have forgotton to lower the plate the first time I cross the wake while skiiing). I don't notice a big difference in terms of hole shot. It's also nice to have the ability to trim out the boat when simply cruising the lake (say, less than 20 mph) -- it really brings the bow down. I'd highly recommend it, particularly if you plan to do any serious slaloming.

Interesting! Good to hear...now I may have to consider installing one. Anybody know the approx cost of doing this? It's too late for me to add as my X2 is currently in production :D

Go to the link below and look at the last pic in post #4. It is an adjustable trim tab.

I can think of someone who may have a plate in their head that effects their attitude!

He didn't want that option... spelling attitude over and over again would have caused too much stress

Anyone have one with the folding platform option and the attitude plate?
Would love to see pictures if there is any interference problems between the two?

I second his comments as being dead on!. I also have the 2200lb fly high system for boarding and I can use the plate to tame the wake down for my 10 YO w/o having to dump any ballast. The plate is great for skiing, but won't do anything other than mellow the wakeboarding wake.

I have it on our 08 X45 and it does interfere with the Ram portion of the attitude plate. I would say though it is a very needed part for an X45 IMO.

maybe a dumb question, but has anyone put a plate on an X-star?
What is the effect on the wake.

Does anyone know if one can be put on an '02 X-30? Mine porpoises pretty good at speeds above 25mph, depending on where people are distributed.

Let some of that 4,000lbs of ballast you have out. 8p

Are you referring to my ballast setup? If so, it's no where near 4K - maybe 2K at best when fully loaded.

PS205, I put one [bennett] on my 02 210 (x-10 hull).... pics are on this forum if you search - should be easier on an x-30 : more room.

more than enough to porpise if not loaded evenly... i had 500 extra in the rear and 200 in the front and mine wouldn't get over 30 mph even w/ two girls in the front and 4 guys (including me) in the back

NeilM -

How do you like yours? Did it make the ski wake better? How about porpoising?

Pardon me only one ton of ballast, my bad. :D
