If and when I do get serious about purchasing I will definately look at any with the ltr or mcx due to the limited to no availability of one with the 6.0
I would love to foot behind a 209 w/ 6.0 to see what it is like. I love footing behind mine, just need a long rope, at least 85-90 ft. With just a driver or one other person the boat is so quick I can stand up as fast as I want.

Neighbor has a X9 with MCX, doesn't really seem any faster than mine. Need to foot behind it for the comparison.

X9 is perfect boat for me- room for a small crowd, plenty of wake for scarecrows and back rolls, and plenty fast for 'footin.

Nothing wrong with two boats though
