Is it worth the upgrade my prostar is hooked up with custom tower and custom built in ballast it is on sale on The classifieds of team talk. I am looking at a 1999 x-star is this a good upgrade!

Thanks

Dude, it's called punctuation.

Anyway, all depends on what you want to do. The 99 Xstar (if I'm not mistaken) doesn't have the wrap around seating and the first gen tower... I would look at 2001 stars if your really serious about upgrading. All depends on if you want to wakeboard more...
Throw about 2700lbs + with a few people and that wake is mackin

Thank you, I know was just on my phone doing this. Sorry I did not think punctuation was a big deal on here. Thanks for the tip. The 99 does not have the wrap around rear seat.

I went from a 1993 205 to a 1999 X-star.
The v-drive doesnt handle as good as the direct drive. But other than that. I like it a lot more than the direct drive.

as stated above. The 1999 does not have the wrap around seating. and has the first gen straight tower. ( fugly )

My 1999 has the sec gen zero flex tower. so the only thing I would like in mine is the wrap around seating. and the three piece rear sun deck.

I would get a 2001. it has the wrap seating, and three piece desk.

Haha no worries man, just makes it a lot easier to read.

Yea... Go 2001 with it - I think you'd really miss the seating.

I agree that the 2001 X-star would be a better choice overall. My buddy has one and it's awesome for wakeboarding if that's mostly what you do. If you ski more than 50% you should stay with the '92 prostar

What body of water to you frequent? I use to hit Lake Aldred near you back in the 90's. The ski club there was pretty fun back then.

Jersey, that's where I boat at. We have lots of fun on the weekends, early morning is the best!
Thanks for the advice, I am going to still look at the 99 to see condition. Thanks guys for the info on the 2001. I def agree that the tower on the 99 is fugly. I like my tower better on my prostar.
