They sit really low when slammed.

X2 definitely has more freeboard at the bow area, plus it handles the turns much better than an X-star. Better surf wake too.
@Jerseydave@snork Thanks for the reply. No one else had an explanation and I was confused on how a design flaw would have made it this far in the MC boats.

Taking water over the bow only applies to one that is heavily loaded with ballast or people, and that only happens if the driver is not paying attention when idling into large rollers or performing a sacreligious power turn. They just sit a little lower in the water at the nose than most. But as long as you're paying attention as the driver it is not a common occurence.

If you are still considering a Star, here is a very clean one for under $40,000. http://madison.craigslist.org/boa/4358158948.html

We have an 08 X-star in your price range, if you're still shopping. It's on the for sale forum:http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=58990 Priced very competitively, in great shape, and an incredible sound system.

Heavily weighted XStar you'll need to pay attention to the wave going over the transom as well
Still driver error if that happen too
