In todays age, skiing is a dying sport(don't kill me guys). Unless she is going to be a competitive skier, I would imagine the X10/X30 will suffice with the wakeplate all the way down.

I would call bull ****. Go with the Malibu or Supra if that dealer took better care of you for sure. Bu is on level with MC and part of the battle is how well the dealer will take care of you if you ever have issues.

Also is it worth contact MC directly to let them know their dealership is being a bunch of *****s?

Just for reference, we went out for 2 demo rides with our dealer: once last fall and the other this spring in 2 different X30s. No strings attached. Not sure what's up with that dealer...

We slalom ski behind our X30. I created a profile with center plate 30% deployed @ 28mph. Not bad for recreational skiing - better than our previous boat.

Thanks for all the replies. We are interested in the X-10, the dealer said the wakes were similar in height but the X-30 would be wider due to the hull size. I hope we figure out a way to try the X-10... considering a trip or mini vacation out of the area to try one. Hopefully if I fly out to try a boat the dealer will assume I'm serious.

Does Nancy Pelosi own the dealership?

What a truckload of crap. Nobody who can afford these kinds of expensive brand new boats would agree to this gestapo tactic.

I would NEVER spend this kind of money without a test drive. My dealer towed an X25 150 miles to MY home lake to show it to me. No strings attached.

After hearing all of this, I'm am going to give them one more attempt at a demo and just move on. uplandbird I agree. Who would have thought it would be a pain in the *** to spend $100K on a boat? It took me a while to come to grips with that concept to begin with!

I guess i'm a little different than most on here. If I was going to spend ~$100k on a boat, I'd get the boat I wanted. I wouldnt buy a second or third choice because I didnt like the salesman. Ideally, you'll spend more time in the boat than with the dealer anyway. Actually when I bought mine, I didnt care for the dealer or salesman, having worked with them before. But thats where I had to go to get my boat. Fortunately for me, now we have a different local dealer, and even though I didnt buy my boat from him, he's always taken care of me.

I agree whole heartedly... IF I could test it first!

i would call the dealer one more time and only one more and tell them you intend to go another path if they don't demo and if they stick with their crap demo policy, run!
