...and what speed do you run? wX2w and I were marveling at your wake from the picture you posted in the wakebording shots thread. Our wakes are smaller and wider than yours by the looks of that picture (and don't tell us it's the Canadian water). I posted a picture showing mine.

yea that's about liek i'm running from what i can tell... yea we usually run a 75' line at 23.5 mph or a 80' line at 24.2 mph... i don't see much change in the wake on my boat from about 22.7-24.0... 22.5 i can tell riding it get steeper and softer and i can tell at 24.2 its a bit shorter and much harder... i haven't dialed in my speedo this yr tho... that might have something to do w/ it... my SANTE buddy says 22.0 behind mine feels like 23.5 behind his... ??? who knows... i like my wake but i'm slamming it this winter... i want to be able to an in and out backroll on mine :D

My bags are on their way actualy. I am putting in the X-Star kit. Pic's above are actually at 60' to handle. 75' and 80' back on my boat gets really wide.

i got 200lbs of tractor weights (cast iron) on each side of the motor right now and i'm plumbing 280 lbs each bags in this winter w/ the pro x series integrated bow sac as well... i'm stoked to get this thing slammed... i'm ready hit the monster... had it dunked minus the 200 lbs on each side of the motor earlier this yr and had 6 girls instead of integrated bow and it was pretty sweet dunked... can't wait for slammed

I run at about 22.5 and have the full fly high kit installed. I usually fill up all rear bags (stock and fly high) and KGB and don't really need the bow bag. The wake is a monster. More than I can handle or want to handle. Don't have any boarding pics of it.

The biggest I ever had mine was for a comp back in '06. Had stock, plus 350# in each rear locker, 360# of lead in the bow, 250# sac in the walk through, and a 400# on the floor in the rear There were 3 judges, a driver, and a rope handler in the boat. Took a while to get on plane, but it was MONSTER. Very clean too at anything above 23mph.

go with the 400lb bags in the rear... you will be much happier... unless you already have the 280's

the exta couple hundred lbs never hurts and they fit in the rear compartments really well (on my x-10 atleast

these are from my x-10, factory ballast, 440lbs in each rear compartment, fly high integrated bow sac under the front seat. 3 in the boat about 23mph

hopefully hard wiring everything next summer

***sorry for the thread jack***

no that is not me riding... it is a friend... but they are the only good ones of the wake... and seeing her take everything into the flats is never a bad thing :D

blair... i'll have more than the 400s w/ more room the way i'm talking about doing it... i'll have 280 lbs of extra ballast bags on top of 200 lbs of iron on top of 225 in the ballast tanks for a total of 705 on each side of the motor vs the 625 i would have if i did the 400lbs bags... and i'm getting the nautique wedge sacs for $150 for the pair from a good friend who is taking them out of the bow of his SANTE and putting one big bag up there to simplify things... i'm going to need roughly 552 lbs according to my calculations to have is spot on 60% rear/40% front... but if i keep the factory split and step away from the 60/40 rule and use the factory numbers i'll need 46.3% of the weight in the front and that will put me needing 815lbs in the front.... still haven't decided what to do there yet... prolly start w/ the 60/40 and see if i like it

The fly high bow bag X-series which is what I have rates it at 1000#'s. My rear lockers have 225 factory and then the X-series bag rated over 400 #'s. Total weight loaded up rear is 1250 #'s plus. Total weight center and forward if loaded is 1388#'s. Combined weight of 2638 +#'s without including people. I also bring along some lead a couple hundred pounds stored away along the surf side. I am guessing I am pushing 3300 #'s with two passengers and lead not including gas etc. The wake is ginormous and definately don't need this much weight. Usually don't fill the bow bag full to get the 60/40 rule and wake is perfect.

roonie... did you change props? how is it out of the hole?... i'm sitting on the MCX 350 hp and when i added the preliminary weight (280 lbs on top of factory in rear plus 5 girls in the bow) it was a little slow for my liking... i know slammed it isn't going to just jump up on top of the water but my buddy SANTE is PAINFUL to get up behind... it take a long while to get on plain and to speed

It is a serious pig when fully weighted until it gets on plane around 17 mph then not a problem at all and can't even tell it is weighted. Still no problem getting up and boarding and the best part is fully weighted it is still faster than my old I/O getting out of the hole.

Changing props over the winter and I hope to rectify the situation considerably.

Roonie, don't you already have the wakeboard prop? Should have gotten the MCX, all you do is apply more throttle, no matter what prop or how much weight :D

Had to rub it in. We have the 14 X 14.25 OJ on one boat and it's quick out of the hole. We have the stock 13 X 17 OJ on the other boat. It's pretty good, too, but if that boat is loaded down, apply more throttle and we're good :D

I currently have the 14.25 x 14.5 OJ prop on it as it came stock. Going with a different prop more out of the hole punch but seriously decreases the top end which I don't care about anyways. Will let you know what I get. Honestly it is not the RTP as Indmar sent me the torque specs on both engines and they are almost identical until about 4500- 5000 RPM then the MCX pulls away pretty good. So the extra HP is in the top end for the MCX. I am sure the prop change will help alot. That is also a hell of a lot of weight I am hauling out of the hole so to be expected.

Can't even get it to spin those numbers out of the hole!

Hey guys, Sorry it took so long to reply! I dont spend much time on here. I'm an Automotive Instructor in Kelowna BC so Im quite busy in the winter and get two months off in the summer to pound on my X2. Would you believe that wake is 100% stock X2? All ballast full at about 26mph. I don't know how I get such a nice wake but everyone who rides it says its nuts! I'm going to put fat sacs in for better surfing but for wakeboarding, this is how I'll keep it!

Cheers,

Cam
