I love my X2 I've never regretted getting a large boat. If i bought another new boat today it would probably be another X2! I like the 2010-2011 models because of the dash set up, but it wouldn't be in the 45K price range. But nothing wrong with an older one either I'd take one of those too. Good luck with the search.

Anything slower and it will feel like a deep-V I/O wake. Either way, consider it for recreational slalom use only.

I think the X-2 is a better overall choice for your needs. With the trim plate it should be fine for slalom. You should be a able to find a nice one for under 45K.
Thnx for the heads up on the wake with speed needed.

If you really want a pickle front boat, then the X-2 would be the better route for recreational skiing, wake boarding and surfing. The X-2 also doesn't take water over the bow like the Star can.

Choice of these two boats was size and design. Mainly the pickle fork for space.

You are the second person to talk about the water over the bow on the Xstar. Is it a big issue for concern or is it a design aspect when you are in rougher water or slowing down too fast?

You have to know how to take waves from the side, even your own wake after a fallen rider.
With 9 people in the boat and full ballast, you better know how to keep water out of the bow.
They sit really low when slammed.

X2 definitely has more freeboard at the bow area, plus it handles the turns much better than an X-star. Better surf wake too.

X2 sounds like the ticket. Given what I've read. I wouldn't even consideer an XStar.

I just got out of Afghanistan. Stay safe over there.... I have an 08 X-Star with 500 hrs... will take 52K firm... that's probably one of the best deals you're gonna find. Its loaded, with wetsounds tower speakers and all...email me at wrightcj77@yahoo.com and I will send you pics if interested. Mine is not a must sell, but I will let it go for that price. Gonna advertise it starting in February.
