What years are best for V Drive Ski wakes


Recommended Posts

Hello

I am back again trying to confirm some old info. I have been looking for an 01 sunsetter vlx because of the good slalom wake.  I thought there were a few more models and years that had same hull and wake??? If anyone knows I would appreciate the feedback.

Check out the vtx if you want a v drive with a good slalom wake. My vlx is skiable, but nothing compared to my dads direct drive with the diamond hull.

Just "upgraded" from a 2001 VLX w/ Diamond Hull to a 2021 VLX (also w/ Diamond Hull).  And while I love surfing and wakeboarding with the new boat, I have to say I really miss skiing behind the '01.  There's no leisurely pull through the wakes behind the new boat.  You have to dig and hold and prep for the landing as you hit the other side, or you will get worked.  You can do it, and it's still fun, but definitely not as enjoyable as the '01.

You don't have the diamond hull on a 99 VLX.  Big difference between it and 01-04

 

OP, 01-04 VLx had diamond option.  We still have an 04 in the family.  Over 27mph ish and it really helps.
