Can anyone compare the surf wave of a 2017/2018 24 MXZ with the M235?

We have a 2017 24 MXZ with the 575 and absolutely love it. We had a 2016 23 LSV with the 410 and really liked it but decided to move up last year and have been very pleased. Obviously a pretty big price jump between the two. The extra space is great and the picklefork bow has been an unexpected plus, took a while to get used to the look but we always seem to have a group up there.  Have not been on an M235 yet, anyone surfed behind both and have any thoughts?

I will most likely surf a 24 mxz today. It’s the riders experience 2019 but I can report back. We surfed a M235 a lot last year.

Surfed them back to back when a friend was shopping.  Both great waves but the M235 wins ( my opinion) on power of the wave.......next level.

Fortunately now get to surf the 235 regularly.  We have played with speed, 800lbs of lead, wedge.....never had a bad wave 😁😁

Alright, sorry I’m just getting back to this but I did get a quick opportunity to surf the 2019 24 mxz this past weekend and it is very good. Top 3 malibu waves for sure. I’d still put the M at the top big the 25 LSV and 24 mxz are super close. The gap is no longer OMG the M wave is soooooooo much better. Now the only difference for this analysis is I didn’t surf them back to back and the 19 mxz has the power wedge three. It’s hard to say how much of a difference it makes because I actually hadn’t surfed a 24 mxz prior to this. 

If I were choosing between the M and a 24 I'd pick the 24. You get more boat for the money. Neither are really my style because I’m a traditional bow guy but they are both awesome boats. Neither are a bad choice and you will be happy with which ever you decide!

Thanks guys, really appreciate your feedback/thoughts. We have been super happy with the 2017 24 MXZ wave and everything about the boat. The picklefork is definitely an acquired taste but now feel that I would not go back to a tradtional bow.
