BEST V DRIVE FOR SKIING

Recommended Posts

h20sportsbum

I am trying to get everybody's take on what the best vdrive between either a sunscape21 or sunscape 20, both with the diamond hull naturally. I am trying to see which one compares to the rlxi the best. You would think that it would be the 20 footer since it is the cut diamond just like the response. Anyway what is your experience. How good is the wake compared to a rlxi.

The Sunscape 20 LSV is the best skiing v-drive on the market, bar none. At 32/34/36 it is highly slalom course capable boat, and at slower speeds it is still a tournament certified boat, but the difference to a RLXi will get greater. At 18-21 mph it's a good wakeboard/trick boat.

I ran a couple barefoot passes just the other day and didn't see any difference to the 08 RLXi curl. I didn't do any wakes, but it looked fine.

I have the 2007 VLX with diamond hull. The dealer said it what I wanted because I like to ski the course and wakeboard. I found out that there is a bump at 15 off that is pretty big. Speeds of 34-36 the wake gets noticeably smaller but not as small as you would find on the Sunscape 20. I'm happy with the reseults I get, but it's definitely not even close to the RLXI or Sunscape 20 wake on a bad day. Rockon.gif Smoothwaterman hit it on the nose!!!!
