two quick reasons:
1) file size - more resolution = bigger files, less storage capacity per memory card, more space on your hard drive.
2) frames per second - some of the lower resolutions allow you...

labeling sizes on wetsuits for easier recognition

I've keep a number of wetsuits and heater tops of varying sizes on the boat for my family and guests to use, but its always a pain in the neck to figure out which is which. Normal permanent markers...

It's kind of both. The AHC (Adjustable Height Control) suspension uses hydraulics to change the height of each corner independently coupled with highly pressurized air behind rubber damns that act...

I'm the second owner. I contacted the PO, but he claims there was never work done on the fuel system. I have no reason to think the PO is fibbing, but I also was not there to confirm or his dealer...

Cracked fuel vent line

A little warning for everyone:

I found a fuel leak caused by a dry, brittle hose in the fuel tank venting system. The shocking part is the boat is only a 2011!

When I filled the tank, the pump...

Wouldn't this also raise the height of the trailer? If so, that means backing into the water deeper. Maybe sink the brake fluid reservoir and foul the surge brakes? I'd be careful. First and...

Make sure you check the ski wake if that is important to you. Haven't seen it in action, but that's a big, heavy girl to not leave a big crease wherever she sits. Difficult for me to imagine a flat...

The ski part is the tough one... generally speaking the better the wakeboard and surf wakes, the worse the ski wake. There isn't a boat made that is great at all three (good at all three, maybe......

It does not empty on the trailer. When inspecting the impeller, all vanes were intact and in perfect condition and the impeller spins when powered on, it just doesn't suck any water. I'm thinking...

Not filling or emptying

One of my ballast tanks neither fills or empties. At first I assumed it was a bad pump or impeller, but I took the cover off and the impeller is in great condition and spins fine. If the sensor is...

Extra ballast Q for X-25

I want to start playing with beyond factory ballast levels in my X-25. What bags have you all found work well in the rear lockers? The rear lockers aren't particularly tall due to the rear facing...

Agree the floaty is a must have, but don't trust it by itself. It can get ripped off in a crash at wakeboard speeds, plus some mounts weigh enough to cause the gopro to sink even with the float. Two...

No link, but if you want to search I vaguely remember it being a thread here 4-8 months back discussing engine choice for the X25... or maybe it was an X25 vs X30 discussion. I recall the tracking...

Add tracking fins?

2011 X-25. Does anyone know if you can add tracking fins? I've seen it listed as an option on 2012 x-25s but I don't know if it can only be installed at the factory or if it can be popped into older...

I wouldn't. I'm worried about my knees with the current factory ballast. Any more and I may as well set aside money for knee replacement surgeries now.

I'd recommend two steps in getting a kid into a bigger wake like the X25.

First start them off on a long rope 75-80'. Tell them to stay in between the wakes. Get them comfortable going straight...

I made a similar change earlier this year in going from a 2008 X-15 with the MCX to a 2011 X-25 with the 5.7L Ilmore. I assume the performance in the X2 and X15 are close enough to be a good...

IMO even the 5.7 will play with the x-25. I haven't weighted mine down super heavy yet, but the 5.7 has handled everything I've thrown at it just fine. I'm sure a bigger engine is even better - no...

Bingo.

I'd be worried if I was Mastercraft. This is NOT saying I like the new Tige. I didn't think it was possible to make a boat uglier than the G23 without it having shrimp nets on board, but...

Surf tab settings

Didn't OP say you often have 10 people in the boat? If so you're are choosing between the X-2 and X-30, I'd recommend the X-30 by a wide margin. The X-2 is a great boat, but the only advantage I see...

I don't find the X-25 to be "very steep", at least not in a negative way. I find it nicely shaped - not a sudden pop at all. I would agree that the X-25 wake is not as good a low speed wake as the...
