Rough water performance is not as good as the X25, but certainly nothing to complain about. The balance of rough water ride, and handling on the X30 is very good.


Looked through my phone. I couldnt find a good pic of the X30 wakeboard wake

What?

While reversing the seat concept might be the same the manner in which MC does it is far more practical.

2500lbs? Wow that's just crazy weight right there.

As requested, here are pics of the Stock Wakeboard Wake. We found that that it just gets better with more weight, and you do NOT have to speed up with more weight, the X-30 throws a huge wake while weighted going as slow as like 20. The wake is very clean. Compared to the other boats I ride its much more consistent and doesn't wash out.

So that is factory ballast only? Not bad.

Yup just the factory tanks no bags or PnP. We always ride it loaded though . What we have found is we haven't been able to overload the boat and make the wake wash yet. Even with 2800 lbs and a boat full of people the wake is totally clean as slow as 21. I mean most people riding with that much weight like to go faster (I like to ride about 22-23), but for learning tricks it's great to have a huge wake at slower speeds. It's a very different wake then what I was used to on my moomba,but once I got used to it I prefer it. Much more predictable and smooth, I never get bucked or hook wash on the way up. Plus as my kids start riding the wake will be awesome for learning because its so clean. Our season is over but I have some plans for the winter to add more weight. I'd really like to have my boat setup with about 3500lbs of on board ballast plus people. The wake is so awesome with that much weight and is the perfect blend of smooth take off with some lip to boost you. IMO this boat likes as much weight as you can throw at it.

Ok checked out both the 2013 x-25 and x-30 yest at my dealer. Both very nice and feel pretty much the same for space inside. Really liked the feel of the new vinyl also! Here is where I have issue with the x-25: no reversible seating!!!! Come on MC get with it! Also why oh why don't you just put tracking fins on the dang thing standard??? Are you a performance inboard boat or not?
Lastly the sales guy who is a avid rider told me hands down that the x-25 is the better wake for both boarding and surfing.

X25 now has tracking fins standard, all engines not just the 6.2

Well Matt either my dealer is wrong or your wrong...
I specifically asked about fins and he said 'no not standard, they are still part of option package'. Not sure what packages but it sounds like available with more than just the 6.2 though. If I was more interested in the boat I would have sat down with him and got into the numbers but until MC gets smart and puts the rear facing seats in it I'm not interested at all.

Aren't the tracking fins part of the Pro Package on the X25?
