Don't forget the lowly 195!

Also the 214, x14 and 209 will probably put out better wakes than your MariStar and they are all AWSA approved (at one point or another).

It's the great compromise. Wakeboarding, wakesurfing etc. are social sports best done with everyone in the big V-drive boat. Skiing is really done best in a small boat without a ton of weight in it. If you like both, it's a difficult choice to make.

Yep, I totally forgot the 195. Sorry


@LisaJ: This is a 32 MPH completed pass of me running 15' off this past Saturday... Notice the speed I am picking up behind the boat... But semi-relaxed at the turn... Notice also I am on edge...

proper form > higher speed and > shorter line length

Being that we haven't been on the water yet- that made me incredibly jealous! Also reminded me of my days of skiing on the Great Miami River in Hamilton, OH.

I just watched the video. Loved it-a picture is worth a 1,000 words. I call this NO wake, flat as a pancake and what's most noticeable is how narrow the wake is. Mine is very WIDE!

Thanks!

New 190, 197 and x7 MC's have a wider wake, but they are flat.

I have had people tell me they prefer the 197 wake over the 90s Prostars, and I have had people tell me that prefer the 90s over the 197s...

My reply is that if you're on edge, you won't even know the difference.

^^^^+1 what rat says... going flat thru the wake is punishing and unsafe. Get in the right stacked position... keep arms straight... turn hips... start just outside the wake until your kohones grow like mine finally are... this pic was me attacking the wake... unfortunately.. it won... - But I did get up and ski more... lol... it's now fun rippin thru the wake... had a nice rip ... and I failed... turn my shoulder - fail..

Mike - is that a spear they threw at you or your ski?
