Tige RZ2 vs. X25

Just the hard facts, for the same or slightly less cash for the Tige...?

(hate the new MC towers whereas Tige's looks like it was sculpted by the gods)

two friends of mine have the new Tige RZ2's and the upholstery is already ripping along the seams.......No factory ballast, the drivers console is too tall and hard to see over, the pickle fork is very narrow and not near as roomy as the x25........just my 2 cents....

Tower, wetsounds=good. Graphics are finally starting to get better. Hate the Tige interiors. Cheap and not up to par with MC, BU or even 2012 MB's.

I would be, and am, looking at the V226 with the new illusion tower and 2012 graphics. I am not sure which graphics but I like the boat, and it is around 60k new. Hope these links work. I know, not a Mastercraft to some. Worth a look.

That is a sweet boat, but I would take a brand new MB TWB for $10k less any day of the week and twice on Sunday.....

I tested 3 times a RZ2 and ended up with the X-25 while the RZ2 was nice it was far from the the MX-25 in quality or ride. The RZ2 was noisy and had a funny feel to it maybe due to all the ballast required compared to the X-25 ? you could here the water hitting the hull the interior was very cheap and was 8K less ? in three years that 8k will be double in value loss for the RZ2. The Tige is not a bad boat but I don't think you can compare it to a MC and this time. The only thing I liked more was the touch screen and my new boat came with that ! The sides of the RZ2 are as ugly as they come ...

That Supreme is a nice looking boat. I know nothing about there quality or wake, but I like the external appearance.

The surf wake is supposed to be second to none. I am setting up a test drive to see what I think about the build quality. I want to see it hit some big waves and not rattle and twist. It does look very good and it has a large interior.
