I was just responding to the statement that people don't use their boats for intended purposes. Seems weird to pay 130k for a boat to use exclusively for tubing.
Unless you have the means to just have your favorite brand regardless of cost. - I would love a 2014 Prostar - but I would still break at he hips..

Reading this i have noticed a lot of hate on the g series and the look. though i agree it isn't the sleekest, i think we can all agree it isn't as bad as the tige asr

Boat looks nice to me; I saw a great looking G23 this summer and really like it as well.

Not that it matters though, I don't see myself ever dropping 100k+ on a new boat, regardless of brand.

Exactly -- the G 21 and X-25 have the same length and width, but the G 21 has 2800 lbs of factory ballast (vs, what for the X-25, 800 or so?), and it has NSS as an option.

In terms of the wake, every wakeboarder that I know who's ridden behind a G 23 says it's the best wake they've ever ridden. A few of them are regular members of my X-25 crew, and have ridden every top end wake boat (X-Star (new and previous), VLX, SAN 210, X-25, X-30, etc etc etc). The early reports are that the G 21 is similar, with a little more kick on the lip.

I love my X-25 wake, no doubt. No complaints there whatsoever. But if I had the option for 2800 lbs of below-floor ballast and NSS-type surf system on an X-25, I'd upgrade right away. Otherwise, I'll keep my 2011 X-25 for a number of years more.

I'm semi- in the market and was leaning toward an X25 but was waiting to see the specs on the G21 before getting serious. While I like the looks of the X series more than the G series, what's most important to me is the wake, ease of dialing it in, and where I can store the boat. Both the X25 and G21 have great wakes and are pretty similar in size. The early comments on planet nautique is that the G21 is still about the same height as a G23 which means it would be too tall for my 8' garage. If that turns out to be the case, it just seems puzzling for CC to put out a 21.5' G when they already have the [2014] 210.

Sorry to be blunt, but the interior of this boat is incredibly ugly. Also the freeboard on these G series is insane.

I would agree, but the asr is a g23 clone. Lol

Also, we need wake pictures of a 25 with 2800lbs of ballast to compare!
