I have a new X-2. I haven't been behind an 2012 gen X Star, X-15, or new X-30 to compare against, but here's my input. The stock X-2 wake has a decent ramp, but it's pretty small. I added about 2000 lbs extra ballast, and it gets a lot better. It is bigger than my 02 X Star weighted down (although not as steep). The downside of the extra 2000 lbs is at 70 ft, I have to go around 24 mph to keep the wake from curling over. I believe 501s said he could go at slower speeds when weighted with his X-30 and still have a clean wake.
