Wow. Goes to show you everyone has different tastes. It wouldn't be in the top 3 for me. I'd even prefer the bubble back or early 2000s prostar. The 2007 generation lxi was not the greatest but worse than a 196? what's your line length and speed? Don't you run something weird like 37 mph and 38 off?
35 off @36mph I have only skied one pre 196. The model before the 196, good but I like the 196 better. Skied many MC's but not the new one. I thought the wakes a tad crisper then the rest but A good ski. And pre cut diamond Rlxi's and of course the cut diamond 07. MB boss 190 ( older MC mold) good. SS lxi as good as my 07 Rlxi if not loaded with more then four or five people. Malibu Euro f3 Good. I want to ski a Carbon Pro and any of the new tractors.
Yes, you can hear the difference between 1.0 and 1.3 ft3.
the bow could be clipped to keep it to a certain length overall, while allowing a longer running surface in the water.
Just a thought.

You've got the intel it seems. Curious about the bow treatment. It's not a picklefork, but it looks like the boat has cheeks. Is that for space? Functionality? Or just because?
Or just because......
???? Boat is a little wider???? Which in theory could fall into functionality of the new hull or additional /workable room in the bow, all in theory mind you.....
