CC with their G23 made some awesome performance improvements but created a fugly boat that while it produces an awesome wake has some seriously negative handling characteristics and user problems. Both companies also gave their less than perfect boats massive price increases.

Interested to see which company changes first. If neither makes a move, they've both left the market open to Malibu, Tige, etc to step in and take ownership of the dominant wake boat. Don't get me wrong - both boats have an awesome wake, but both come with baggage that should not be present on a $120k boat.
That is like saying Lexus and Infinity have left the market open to Kia and Chrysler. How malibu continues to be considered an elite boat baffles me.

Sorry for the threadjack......I just couldn't help myself.
