Unfortunately, I only have two sets of molds for pads. Maristar 210 and Prostar 197. I don't have molds for the X Star, and (sorry) don't intend to make any currently.

Your pads should be the same as the zero flex on my Maristar 210. Try them!

I would try the 210's out. The feet are very similar. Just true the excess off with a razor.if they are bit too big.

Otherwise try DIY wake. They may be able to get you a couple blank pieces

i think i am going to try a set of the 210's they do look the same, i believe they used the same pcs. to make the tower legs, and just made the middle different for each hull (in the ones that were close enough to use the same feet) atleast that is what would make the most sense to me....

Went to the shoe repair store and bought rubber sole material of the right density. Cut and molded a set. When the bolt is tight the new pad allow the tower leg to seat in the rubber molds to the deck. Just another idea.
