I am going about 16. Was doing 15 and increased, the wake is a bit smaller at 16 but I am getting a lot more speed toward the wake and more air now as well.

22 mph for me, it is going to be different depending on the rider and their preference

19 to 21 for me.. It really depends on the chop (soupiness) of the water.. Fast on glass.. slow on soup....

16 Would be slow for me, when you cut out far in the flats I sink at that speed. Trying 19.5 now, seems to be a good speed for me
