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.

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...

You can buy mine for $60k if that makes you feel better. It needs zero work. ;)

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...

We were told by the official Mastercraft folks at the demo that they would indeed have a tower option. It was supposed to be "similar to the mini tower" and it installs on the two triangular pads in...

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...

The only problem I see there is that both the X15 and X14v have BRUTAL wakes for those just beginning to learn the course. They end up afraid of the wake and learning bad habits and a defensive...

I just can't see having a family boat these days without one.
1) Beginners like learning from the tower on one or two skis.
2) Wakeboarding beginners actually prefer a small wake
3) Intermediate...

Digging this one up again. I'll be out in PHX for business for a couple weeks starting the 29th. Is anyone interested in sharing a pull or pointing me toward a ski school while I'm out there?

Cringing before you hit the large wake of a V-drive wakeboard boat at 30mph on one ski builds a LOT of bad habits for a beginning slalom skier. BTDT.

Finally got a hoist to go with my boat's new home on Pine Lake. I'm loving this lake. The ski course is shielded pretty well from the wind most days and traffic is low.
