X2 Ski Wake

Has anyone skied the X2 yet? I searched for some posts and can not find any talk of ski wake. I am changing my mind a bit on the new upgrade from my '94 205 ... I was going either X9 or CC216. Now it looks like either a X2 or CC SV211 if the ski wakes are acceptable. Family of 5 just needs more space ... I am going to have to sacrifice on the wake.

What type of skiing are you looking to do?

The SV211 is going to throw off a pretty good sized wake even unweighted. It won't hold a candle to the 205......

Alittle more info on what you will be doing with the boat will go along way

BigBad, I am wondering the same ? I think you have narrowed it down to two great boats. I would ski behind both if you get the chance. I don't know how much the SV211 shiftgate works or if it's just marketing?

Just took my 05 X-2 in to get winterized and they have a new 06 X-2 in the showroom. If I remember I'll take pics when I pick her up!! I really like it, I've heard it has a solid wakeboarding wake and surf wake, and the boat can be weighted down better than the current X-Star. Jury is still out on the ski wake, I've heard it's great because of the stepped hull, and I've heard it's not so great because of the curved transom. Getting kind of late in the season here, otherwise I would ride/ski behind it and let you know. Probably will do that in the early spring. Local dealer sold 4 custom X-2's in the first week available!!!

MasterCraft would make a direct drive with the pickle fork bow. This would please everyone.

This was around before...I still think it's a great product. You would have another foot or so in the people space area if the overall length stays the same.

the bow would have to be longer, but thats the general idea.

I went through a similar decision six weeks ago. I wakeboard, most of my friends wakeboard, but my 23 yo son skis. Go figure. He and I go together very often, so I wanted a boat that we'd both be happy with. I decided to go V-drive rather than DD. I narrowed my choices to the old X-2, new X-1, new X-2, and SV-211. We demo'd an 05 X-2 and an SV-211. I liked the wake on both for boarding. My son much preferred skiing behind the 05 X-2 over the SV-211, even with the wakegate in slalom mode. The SV-211 is a very heavy boat -- 3900 lbs vs less than 3100 for the X-2, and I figure that has to greatly affect its ski wake. I would have liked to also try the new X-2. I'd heard differing opinions about the ski wake on the new X-2 and realized it was something I had to determine for myself. I decided to buy a closeout demo 05 X-2 with 20 hrs, on which I got an excellent price. I've had it about a month now and we both absolutely love the boat. The ski wake is skiable at 28mph and gets nice at 31mph, which is about what he skis at.
