I would like to buy a MasterCraft, but don't know which boat to get. I need one with a big wakeboarding wake, but can be turned down for slaloming. Any suggestions?

I think a lot of this all depends on how serious you take your skiing vs wakeboarding. IMHO the X-7 would be a good crossover and have heard the X-2's have a decent ski wake as well. Another factor to look at is how much you are willing to spend on a boat as well.

If you want an older boat, the 96--2000 205 is the original X-Star hull in a AWSA tournament approved package.

Agree with both of the above. If you want a pretty versatile boat the X2 is solid and I will be listing my 2006 in the next few days. Its the first year for the picklefork in the X2.

Sorry, shameless plug.

X14 V? I believe it was designed to be a good crossover.

+1 on the early X-star. My '02 works well for both.

You are right. If he is looking for a newer MC, the X14 or X14v would be a good choice also.

I have a 2009 X14 with 50hours and MCX in mint condition single axle trailer and all the extras you could want. $52k

Depending on your $$ range, the x14v has been a great crossover boat so far (only 9 hrs) for me. You said "big wakeboarding wake"--I wouldn't classify the wake as big though--but with full ballast (approx. 600lbs) and a couple of passengers it puts out what I would describe as a "medium" wake. Very adjustable however. Add a couple of sacs and who knows what you would get. Really good slalom wake though once you hit 30-32. I also have the adjustment plate which does seem to flatten the bump even more. Just my two cents...
