Delete. There are no Sumo bags that will fit in the rear X2 lockers. Facepalm.

If I had your boat I'd do all fly high plumbed in with x2 bags in rear and the x2 ibs in front.

I would go with all of one brand, so that the fittings are interchangeable.

The 2012 X2 is the black sheep in the X2 lineup. Can't add the IBS as MC changed the fiberglass in the front. That's why I bought the 2 Sumo Seat Sacs. I got a good deal on my boat, so I can't complain. I'll plumb in the rear locker ballast in a year or two. I just want to see how it works out my first year with the boat.

Fly High doesn't offer any small bags that will fit under the bow seats. That's why I was going to go with shot. But Wake Makers sells an adapter for the Sumo bags so I can use a Tsunami pump with the Sumo bags and the Ronix bag (if I go that route).

Did not know they changed anything on them. I see why you did that then. Wakemakers needs to update this then because the page says 06 and newer X2's. http://www.wakemakers.com/fly-high-mastercraft-x2-bow-sac.html

That's surprising, Wakemakers is usually good on that. yeah, the section of bow behind the center bow cushion is glassed in on both sides. Make a great anchor storage spot but it's useless for anything else now.

I went with the gen2 surf option on my new boat. I haven't seen the size of the rear bags they are installing, but if they are the same size as the fly high bags, I'll have a pair for sale to fit the rear lockers.

Yikes, looks like that product needs some love. Corrected now. MasterCraft changed that bow for worse in my opinion. Now the center cushion storage looks like this...

Spencer, if bcd doesn't end up selling me his bags I'll be giving you a call. Did I hear correctly that you give TT members a discount? Can you PM me on that?
