I should add that I also changed props to get this wave, and I tried several before getting one that was good for slalom, but did not wash the surf wave out. I wound up lowering the pitch on ACME's recommendation and it really helped. I guess my question is, can this surf wave be had with an X-14V or an X15 using the lockers? I really want to believe that this can be done. Anyone have pics? It really amazes me how we all have this question yet MC does not have these photos from seven different angles on their website showing speed, ballast, prop pitch etc.

MC will never post that info because of the liability issue. The first idiot that sunk his boat would sue, saying MC told them it was ok, and win. Kind of like that idiot with 16 people in the bow of his xstar (or whatever it was).

Understood, but they could at least show us the wakes with factory ballast at Wake and Surf speeds. I'm not MC bashing, as I have owned three of 'em, but the marketing team needs to get it together to minimize confusion among enthusiasts and ensure a better customer experience once they finally get it on the water. My opinion anyway. besides, who has time to ski and surf behind four different hulls to determine which is best for the individual? Not me...

Agreed. Sometimes I think MC tries to be to slick. I don't need the fancy edit video with all the eye candy in the seats. Show me a full ballast/empty ballast comparison at three different speeds and I'd be happier. Set it up in the design a boat section on their web site and make it so you could select different boats and compare them side by side on the same page and people would be estatic.If Msn auto can do it for cars it can't be that hard.

Current Setup

Custom built platform to stop the platform from messing w the wake. Maybe able to do the same by just raising the stock.

Removed hard tanks in both lockers.

Port locker W719 1100lbs

Stbd locker W713 400lbs

Stock KGB Ballast

Added an additional pump and put the switch in the extra hole in our ballast panel, pump mounted on the port side of the motor towards the front.

Port seat W704 370lbs

Passenger Seat W713 400lbs

10.7 MPH on the Zero Off.

This was with 2 girls in the bow and 2 people one the port seat plus the driver. The approx 200 lbs of extra weight in the bow makes a big difference.
