My dealer who has skied them all like it best of all the v-drives for skiing.(disclaimer that he thinks the X14v may be as good to a little better but is in a different price class)
Right on. That's why I moved to my 05 X2 last year. Killer boarding wake, decent surfing, and better than average skiing. We do all three. I have 750 lb sacs in both rear lockers, center KGB, and IBS that fills off the KGB. Some weight in the bow actually helps the ski wake. Next spring I will be adding a wakeplate to help smooth out the slalom wake even more. It will never have the wake of a PS 190 or 197 but it makes up for that lack in other areas.
