I find our X30 makes a great slow speed wake. We can get it clean at 19mph, but it will be wide. The one thing is if you want it poppy, try adding some rear ballast (%50), but no front ballast.

I know you spend a ton of time on MC's and know them very well. I guess we will just have to agree to disagree. It seems we have had very different experiences.

When I say full, I mean stock plus 750s in the rear plus 600 in lead. I can’t imagine you are getting more than 800-900lbs in those bags, so they would be weighted very similar. To me, you should...

It sounds like something is wrong. With full ballast we can have a clean wake down to 21. It’s actually a very easy wake to keep clean.

You have the Center tab at zero (all the way up) right?

I'm always surprised when I see people complain about the X30 wakeboard wake. Personally I love it. The thing about the X-30 is it has a mellow wake stock. This boat likes slower speeds (21-22.5)...

Agreed.

XT23, X23, X46 and X-star. All quite similar if you think about it, they are all 23-24 ft wake/surf boats. They all have rear flip seat and about the same options, the only real difference...

The X-30 also likes slower speeds for wakeboarding. At 23.7 it really mellows out. I’d try running around 22.5, the wake will be steeper with more lip, but a little wider.

I'll Say. We were riding around 22.5 MPH. I will say that the X-30 like as much rear weight as possible. The more the better. If you had that 750 in the middle or more toward the rear I bet the...
