I rode (wakeboard) behind the new VLX this weekend.  Wake was on the smaller side, but really consistent (typical malibu wake).  Boat was nicer on the inside than the pictures give it credit for.  If you didn't know any better (not a member here/most of the population) the VLX would seem to be on par with the rest of the wakesetter line. I didn't walk away with the same experience on the 2016 nxts.  They felt cheap.
