I have them, I'll try to get them on tonight. Don't think I have slalom wake pictures but do for surfing and wakeboard. Slalom wake is better than almost any I/O, worse than any direct drive.

Here are some off my 06 x1, as you will notice we usually put more weight on the driver side, as the wake is cleaner over there. overall it has a great wakeboard wake, that was the hardest part about switching to an X2.

Only pic I have at present. KGB full, IBS full, approx 400lbs in each rear locker at 23.5mph. My wife landing a HS 180. Wake has far more energy than it looks (as everyone who rides with us comments). No skiing wake pics sorry.

I know I am biased but the X1 (205v) is the best hull every made by anyone (including MC) P E R I O D. From stock to loaded down, the wake is incredible. Drop the weight and pickup the speed and you cannot beat the ski wake given it is a V drive.

Sure, it is cramped with more than 6 people, cant take a big chop well, and may not stack up to pure D drives for competition course pulls but I sure love my X1!

OK...I am done.

Heres a few pics from the Hypertour this year in MO. We used both 2007 & 2010 x1's to pull it. Plenty of meat to boot the riders. More pics of the event are available on www.mowake.com

the X1 (205V) wake is one of the best out there. if you have any question about whether or not it will allow riders to perform at their best you can check out this video http://www.vimeo.com/7146820
...most of the riding was done behind my 2000 XStar (same as an X1).


also, here are some pics of the wake:

Suprised this thread even exists. Just thought it was understood that the 205v hull was the best wake hull ever. Almost like pi or "π" or 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288.

Wow the wake looks awesome. How do you weight it? I have a 2002 XStar with the same hull and have pretty much just been sticking with the stock ballast. In the off season I am thinking of upgrading the ballast.

i do 750's in the rear compartment on each side of the engine, 350 in ski locker, 350 underneath bow seats (integrated bow sac), then 700 on floor behind driver seat, 120 in lead under port bench seat (helps balance out the 700 pounder since it is more to the starboard side), then the 1100 pound wedge on top of the bow seats.

i've noticed that at about 3500 lbs is when it really starts getting noticably bigger (over 4000 is just awesome!). no matter how much total weight you have, you should be going at about a 50/50 to 60/40 rear to front ratio.

Hey Shundra I posted the same thing on wake world. Just ordered 400lbs of lead instead of bow sack which does not fill all the way.
