Seems to be about $13k more than I've seen most others for. Very good looking boat though. Lost out on a red and white '03, 250hrs, 6.0, asking $23k. Was a 4 hr drive for me to go look at it and not knowing for sure it's what I want. Hoping to run across one close to me to go put hands on.

I would agree too much. That is at the lower end of X-14 pricing.

By the way, what year X2? Older X2s have 205V hull and that looks like a rough ride too. I've overlooked 205V hulls because I'm scared they will ride as rough as what I already have.
Mine is an 07 not the 05' under hull which is the 205V hull. That 205v hull is still supposed to be better than the 209 hull in chop I believe. If you decide to look at an x2 let me know. I have a very low hour 07 in excellent condition we are considering selling. Believe its at like 320 hours but might be under that.

I haven't ruled out and X2 or X30. Shoot me some pics. I haven't been looking at the 205V hull boats simply b/c I figured they would ride as rough as my boat based solely on the shape of the hull. 209/X9 seems to have a much sharper vee, and stays that way to the transom. Would be nice to know someone with all these boats to test drive. LOL

It is getting close to wintertime so a lake test might have to wait until spring. My boat got winterized two weeks ago.

Out of all the boats mentioned I'm guessing the x30 will have the best ride. I haven't been in an 06+ x2 on a bumpy day though.

I have a 2006 X9. I primarily slalom and have no complaints at 34 mph and 22' and 28' off, where I normally ski. I took out a buddy that has a 99' ski nautique 196 and after sets at 22' and 28' off he sat in the back of the boat in shock. He never thought the boat would ski that well. I've footed with 11 people in the boat on a 100' line off the tower. I tried surfing the boat but the deepest my lake gets is about 8' and it was a lost cause. Next summer I hope to pull it over to a bigger lake to try surfing with it. I have some videos of the wake at various speeds 26 mph, 32mph & 34mph if you are interested let me know.

My draw to the boat, between my brother/sister and families, there are 13 of us (7 kids) and I needed more room to get everyone out on the boat. This boat does that well.

What kind of chop do you have on your lake? The biggest waves we get are maybe 12-15" and I've never felt like the ride was uncomfortable. My old boat, a 89' ski centurion would knock your fillings out on choppy days.

You can absolutely surf the X9, and quite well with the right weight. Search my name for X9 and "surf" on this site for videos and setup.
