I'd recommend the extra pair of cleats if you can.

I got an extra set. Do you mean have 3 pairs of pull up cleats? I had 2 sets on my VLX and was plenty I thought

Says power wedge as well.... I guess manual was standard and power optional. Ya meant 3 pair, I think you can get that on an MXZ.

What is the cost of the cover compared to an Evolution?

If you decide on a custom cover you might have to wait if you're one of the first with that boat. They will need to get a pattern made. CS will have the pattern directly from Malibu.

So did you get to look at any photos of the boat? I am eyeing this boat as well but am going to wait till I can see it and hopefully test drive before pulling trigger.

Just for fun, I'd verify power wedge...and I think snap out carpet is standard in the MXZ. Sounds Nice!

I think this is supposed to be one line

"Wakesurf Technology *Same color as the Swim Platform N/A with Manual Wedge"

But nice purchase!

I had the opportunity to drive a 24MXZ yesterday. Boat handles better than the 22 and has a wake similar to the X-star. I'll post some pics when I get back to MI.

Please post some pics and any more info when you have a chance

as far as price difference - you can expect 10+ over the 22, but keep in mind this is a bigger heavier boat - so went to the 450 as well

Have you heard weight of boat + trailer? What are you going to tow with? I'd assume its quite a bit heavier than 247 LSV even.

Will be pulling with a tundra rock warrior so no towing issues

Not sure on weight. I'm guessing an extra 500-1000 lbs on the way high side over 247

What about the wake-surf gate. Did you order that option? Did you get to test drive with the new wakegate?

those pics of the 24 MXZ sure look good its nice to see how they put most of the extra room in the back where its needed most. Now just to see how the surf wave is i hope its better then the 22 MXZ because that wave isnt to impressive yet anyway.

I really like it, they kept the MXZ style and made it bigger. I was worried ... I have preferred the VLX styling over the LSV, the LSV seemed kind of watered down bigger VLX.

Now as long as the Surfgate wave works as well as the other boats, its a home run.

Call me simple, but I'm just impressed by the amount of cup holders! ;)

Almost like the chillax seats on the axis only on the sides. I like them!
