Wakeshaper on a 205V

Has anyone used the wakeshaper (any generation) on the 205v hull. I am looking at this or Gosurfassist. I like the idea of less money but more importantly less moving parts. We only surf the port side so switching is not an issue. I get a pretty good wave now but would really like the idea of 400 in both sides, and KGB full along with 400 in the bow and not listing so severely.

I still slalom and wakeboard so definitely keeping the hull. Just trying to get a little bit longer wave so I can go to a shorter board.

Is that the surf wave I can I can expect from the 205v hull??? Bummer. I am not naive, I have done my research and fully understand that this hill is ok at best for surfing. I, as well, inquired about the wake shaper for the 205v hull with only crickets for a response. One would think the most popular, probably most purchased hull, with a lack-luster hull for surfing would be a prime candidate for this upgrade. Still waiting.....snapples??

It is very hard to find boats in Southern California to test on. There are hardly any forum members besides myself and's Naples that have master crafts.
I did just find a Mastercraft at my storage unit, I think it's an old X*

I guess I didn't realize that is is a test-by-model basis; I assumed his company was rolling with various makes and models....No prob, I would love to offer measurements etc for future research and development purposes to enhance the wake surfing experience for all 205v hull owners.... ��

He's just getting rolling on his product and building his boat arsenal as we speak. I will say he's been awesome getting me info and answering my questions. I have one on the way for my boat.
That pic up top in the 205v may not be the best surf pic. It's not a great surfbog by any means,but that wake looks a little on the small size even for 205v.

We surf our 05 X2 and the wave is much bigger than in that pic. (See my sig for ballast set up.) I was able to drop the rope on my second time up. Sweet spot is not big . . . but it does force you to work on technique!
If snaples hasn't developed a wakeshaper for the 205 hull by summer I'll make my own for the time being.

He seems to ask for measurements whenever someone posts asking if it will work. I sent these pics a few days ago. I would be happy to test on mine!

I ran about 30000 lbs or so in my x1 and got a pretty good surf wake. Aric lands 360s on a Phase 5 Prop behind it.

I have a fiberglass platform. I should check my measurements and compare with yours.
