Agreed. Needs more...
If its not a competition ski boat, its always second best.

Was REALLY hoping for a black hull with a gold flake Stars and Stripes style scheme. Good looking boat, but a black and gold Stars and Stripes scheme would've been the epitome of cool.

Anyone else notice that the prostar still uses the Fusion Remotes. I wish they wouldn't have gotten rid of those on the X Series.

I'm sorry, but I expected more. Was actually thinking of getting one, but not really interested now. I'll just design something....
I thought it was so much fun designing our own boat. Plus you will have 1/1 versus 1/50 and save a bunch of money.

Yep very big let down. I have some black on my 197 and it’s the hardest part to keep in good nick. I’d hate to have a full black boat. Honestly they could have done better

Disappointed. Definitely doesn’t get my juices flowing the same as when I bought my 25th limited in ‘93. I can remember back then thinking...”wow, wonder what the 50th will be like....I’ll have to wait 25 years to see”

I'm also feeling meh. Plus I think all black alienates southern boaters. Like Tennessee folks for example.
