Ya, the X80 is a fortress on the H2o! Saw one at HavaZoo in Copper Canyon. Just a beast! I'd still like to see the new 300 on the water. Better yet, I'd like to surf behind one!

coz you never disappoint with the pics you supply. I've seen the x-80 up close too and they are HUGE, especially compared to my little '85 ss.

The 300 is a must see.. saw one and got on one at a open house in ktown. A x 45 was there too. Figured it was all staged open house. Owner must know someone from factory I guessed

Awesome pics ... what is the extra pole on the left side of the tower?

Is that the swing to offload the Waverunners like on most yachts?

seriously .... what is that extra pole?

May not be factory installed. The few I've seen in person haven't had it, neither does the other 80 in the OP's pic...

it Probably clamps on to hold those fancy flag/banners they put on them at boat shows.

Ha, try trailering one around. I trailer her about 30 miles each way to the lake and back. Freeway driving is always an adventure. Thank god for power brakes.

Pretty sure that is an automatic skier flag. Saw one on a Malibu last year. Hit a switch and the flag goes up.

It's a powerflag www.hbpinnovations.com......I'd love to get one, but for the price, the observer can hold the flag up....;)

I was visiting Mastercraft AZ and poked around on that x-80. If money was no object, it'd be a no brainer, especially for lake powell trips! Also, that red and white x-45 has been there for a while, if it's there much longer I may have to take a shot at trading in for it, the surf wake behind my x-star is just not getting it done....
