Several pros have indicated that the X25 throws the largest and best shaped wake of all the MCs when loaded with only stock ballast. I spoke with a few folks who have ridden x-stars and the X25 and they indicated that the X25 with about 1500lbs of ballast has a wake the same size, but slightly steeper and narrower, than a modern X-star with 3500lbs of ballast. But I have no first hand knowledge. Other on here do and will certainly chime in.

The x-25 is a larger, deeper V boat than an X-2 and therefore would be expected to have a poor slalom wake compared to an X-2 and down right awful slalom wake compared to the DD models.
