Gen2 (w/ 750s in each rear locker instead of the original spec'd 450s) is awesome for us as well. Everyone that rode our listed 13 X-30 (surf side stock, center stock, 750 bag in surf side locker, no...

If you think you might want to get into surfing, then there is no dilemma -- you should definitely go with a MC (or another V-Drive). You can't surf behind a Cobalt I/O without risking life and limb....

Here's mine (really close to texasjet's boat) for comparison purposes -- we really like the colored hull, since (as others have mentioned) it really hides the "scum" line we get each weekend when the...

I think the original OP said he wanted to go 24ft+, and was resigned to go used given price considerations. if that's the case, you might consider a used X-35 as well. It's now been discontinued (I...

No problem -- this forum is awesome for questions like this. One thing I forgot to mention was that we also tested rode a 14 X-30 with the 6.0L, and went with the 6.2L for reasons other than engine...

I generally agree with kgrove -- the pure economics would probably tell you to go with the smallest (and least expensive) of the three options. That being said, we've seen an almost 2 gph drop in...

We had a 13 X-30 with the 5.7L and traded it earlier this summer for a 14 X-30 with the 6.2L. The 5.7L was fine for us with stock ballast + 750s in each of the rear compartments. That being said, I...

I was able to deploy the center tab 100% when skiing on my 13 X-30, and can also do so on my 14 X-30. That being said, the first time out on my 14 (w/ the larger touch screen) the system kept...

I just traded my 13 X-30 5.7L for a 2014 X-30 6.2L, primarily to pick up Gen2 and a larger engine. I demo'd both a 6.0 and a 6.2 and found both offered a substantive improvement over the 5.7 in terms...

I agree with H2O ^^^. Looking at the current MC lineup, I'd argue the X10 and X2 represent MC's best "crossover" boats. Both can surf, board and (w/ the center plate) ski. I suspect, but can't...

Thanks for the advice. We're still pretty novice, so we've just defaulted to the Gen2 preset 11.0mph. I'm 185 and my wife is 120 -- thoughts on how much faster we might try? Of course we'll try it...

My New 2014 X-30

Well, it's funny how a quick conversation with a dealer can move from "How much to upgrade my 2013 X-30 with no surf tabs to Gen2?" to "Let's talk about trading you out of your 2013 X-30 with 60...

I agree with kman -- I'd recommend dropping the pitch a decent amount to something in the 15ish" range. You'll increase your rpms some at equivalent speeds (I've heard approx 200rpm per inch of pitch...

Great looking boat. I have a 2013 X-30, but with the 5.7. I've been considering upgrading to a 14 to get the 6.0 and Gen2, and this might be an option if I could sell my 2013. Any comments on the...
