X-25 Ballast

Hi Im going to be upgrading from a 2011 x2 to an x25.

I had plug and play in the x2 but dont in the 25, my question is will these bags fit in the new boat once I get a few new tops for them?

I guess the v drive sacs should be fine but im not sure about the U sac for the nose?

The rear X2 sacs will fit fine, however if you surf you will probably want larger sacs in the rear of the 25. I am thinking of going with 750's or larger in the rears of mine just for surfing. My thought is you don't need more forward weight on the 25 like you did on the X2. The 25 has a larger KGB tank than the 2.

The wrap around sac will most likely not work on the 25 due to how high the deep V Hull and grid liner stringer under the bow seats, not a lot of room there like your X2.

On my X2 we run stock full plus 400 on the surf side, KGB full and if we less than 6 people a 350 down the walkway. Depending on conditions and water depth about 10% to 25% center tab. Speed between 9.6 to 10.4. Always put 1 person in the bow, surf side really helps lengthen the wave.

Wake-boarding, everything full plus the 350 in the walkway and at least one person center in the bow, the X2 really needs about a 60-40 (rear-forward) relationship of ballast.

Won't fit 750's in the back of the 25. You are better staying with the X2 sacs back there. I looked into custom sacs as there would be some room but i might be able to squeeze another 100 pounds max with a slightly larger bag.

My surf set up for the 25 is for Port Full KGB and Stock Port. X2 sac in rear compartment and 750 under coffin seat. For starboard same set up instead replace the 750 with the 470 tube sac from fly high under cooler seat. In both instances plate down about 30% and surf tab at 100%.

Ditto on not getting any sacs to fit in bow. You might be able to use the Nautique Wedge sacs and fill them to 70%. You're best bet for nose weight thats hidden would be some lead up there.

A 750 won't fit running from the rear up into the coffin?

Nope. Definitely not on the starboard side. There was a thread on here a about a guy that did put 750's back there but he could only fill them to like 75% or less.
