2005 X2 Ballast upgrade review

I finished up the ballast upgrade tonight on the X2 I removed hard tanks & added 750lb in each rear locker. Added the front bow piggy back sack off of factory KGB of 650lb. Removed the 13.7x17 stock prop and added the 14.25x14 OJ. Took boat out to test everything def pleased with the outcome surf wake is massive & clean with only 2 people in the boat. I will try to get some pictures tomorrow for everyone to see. I would recommend any of you guys thinking about upgrading ..... to go for it it's worth the money !!!! Sure you lose some storage but it's worth it !

Get me some pictures as I have the same hull and really want to see what that looks like as I have 400's in the rear and was considering on adding the bow sac but wanted to see what it all looked like.

i hope you offset that with more weight in the front. with that much weight in the back that hull likes to porpoise.

also, if you want to go even bigger, throw a 400 in the cabin area with 4 people. it gets massive

I only run 550 to 600 in rear locker whatever side we are riding on. The front bow sack had roughly 300 in it with 400 in KGB everything set up good I believe at 9.5 mph surf wake was nice and full. With these boats you will prob never run at full capacity just because max capacity is only 1615lb
