There is no comparison between the wakes of the X14/214 and the new Prostar. The new Prostar is world class for slalom wake (almost none down to 24mph), where my 214 still forces you to practice...

...and a full fuel load. :o I do run about 60# of weight up in the absolute front of the bow (under the seat, against the cleat hardware), which seemed to help the wake a little. I also have a...

I may upgrade to a new ProStar next season. If I commit, my 214dd would be for sale toward the end of this season.

If slalom is a priority, get the DD version without hesitation. I own a ps214 and tested teh x14v before it bought it. There's no comparison at 30mph, 15-22 off. Even though the hulls are...

I'm afraid that if I go see Aaron again, my wife will think I'm picking up a new 2014 ProStar. Definitely a great crew there in Fenton.

Most professional grade Epoxy guys here are $3-3.50/ft^2, which includes grinding the surface as part of the prep so it doesn't really matter as much what it looked like beforehand as long as it's...

Precisely. Although I like the joke at the end, all they should have needed to show the jury is just how ridiculous it would have looked with TWELVE people in the bow. Who would consider this...

Yes, that's my boat in the photo above. I had to show my wife as we're sitting here on the couch watching hockey instead of waterskiing and laughed out loud when I saw it...

It's the same width as the current PS214 (my boat). Part of the reason for width I would guess is that this helps have more effective surface area to get on plane and lift it out of the water even...

ProTour-X9, That's weird, I had the exact opposite experience. I find my ps214dd wake softer at all speeds than my friend's X9. There is way more pop to the lip on his at 21mph, but his slalom wake...

The X14 is not anything like the X9, even DD vs DD version. The X14 is a stretched version of the x7 (ps197) and slalom skis MUCH better than the X9/ps209. The X9 has a great surfable wake at 11mph...

It's "sort of" there, but easy to miss in person. Standing in the boat, the tops of the gunwales seemed fairly flat and easy to step pretty much anywhere on top as you got in/out at the dock. And...

Up front seating is HUGE. I have a PS214, and the new ProStar has MORE seating up front. Basically, it's like having an additional jump seat in the front cockpit of a 214. Three grown men can...

I just can't see having a family boat these days without one.

2) Wakeboarding beginners actually prefer a small wake
3) Intermediate...
