I ride vs. V ride


Recommended Posts

If you weight them the same the wakes should be the same...just compensate for the engine being a few feet forward by adding more weight to the rear.

BTW-arn't these questions you should have been asking BEFORE you bought the boat Tease2.gif

I had an 04 Waksetter and I know have a Vride. There is no comparison in wakes. The VRide unweighted has a much better wake than the I-ride weighted. But if you still want to hit the slalom couse better stick with the I ride.

the Vride will have a better wake hands down. I may be mistaken but I think the vride has the same hull as the previous wakesetter VLXs which properly weighted throws up a KILLER wake both in terms of size and shape.

Thats the same boat so how can the wakes be any different? Was your Wakesetter a DD? Because an 04 VLX is the same as an 05/06 Vride.

I think the DD Wakesetter use to be called just Wakesetter and then there was the wakesetter VLX.

A side bonus, the V-ride will be quieter as well.
