you must have quite the bag of tricks to need that much weight in a 25 foot boat!

Well its not the bag of tricks. But we ride boats that are heavily weighted and have large wakes (old XStar with 750s in the rear and 400s in the front with 4-5 people, etc) so we are quite used to it. I can certainly land stuff behind that old xstar that i couldnt land behind my boat so right there its worth it. doesnt matter if its a 180 or a moby in my mind.

And the other part of it is riding partners. a lot in my crew are good and really want to ride a bigger wake. As much as I hate to say it I will get more people willing to ride (read: drive. Boat wont drive itself) if I have a top notch wake. sucks but with wife and kids that dont go all that often (or just me and kids going) its no party boat and we are not at the lake all day so the wake quality matters. one of our friends got a moomba and no one will ride in his boat. Why would you when you can get a set behind xstar? so everyone jumps on the xstar. it sounds bad i know but weve got a lot of guys that all ride and a lot of boats to ride behind. if i want to go ride it'll be nice to know many will love the wake and want to go (drive me.)

I liked the X46 wake a lot for wakeboarding but just wasnt as big as other wakes I could get. i could put more bags in the floor or seats but given the new standard is not to HAVE to do that, it narrowed it down to xstar and G23.

man sounds bad but there's been plenty of sunday mornings i know people are tired from riding the day before and arent excited about my old x2 wake but if xstar was going out theyd make the effort. if i cant find a driver then no riding for me.
