Ill head off the, "Just by a TXi" comments. I might look at one in a number of years, but right now the v-drive layout and higher freeboard is better for 80% of what we do. I know by adding tabs I won't get a TXi like wake. I am thinking of putting some Bennett hydraulic tabs on my 2013 VTX to improve the slalom wakes. Right now ill ski at 34mph and 28 or 32 off, and the Slalom wake is ok, but I am pretty certain it could be better. In reading posts from Team Talk, and BOS, it seems that there could be a noticeable improvement. I am thinking about doing this in combination with some other
Hey guys I’m new to wake surfing, and having a little difficulty dropping the handle. I have a 21 MLX and just looking to get the best set up to drop the handle and not slip off the back of the wake. With limited weight in the boat I fill all tanks to 100% surf the port side and wedge set at 4 traveling 11 mph. The board I’m using is surf style Ronix 5’5”, so It’s pretty long. Do I have to much ballast in the boat? Should I change the surf wedge/stow it? I’m not great, but I have the ability to drop the handle. I’m just having a hard time staying in the “sweet spot.”
Hi Folks. I have 3 kids that are competitive wakeboarders. I’m wanting to buy a new boat and I know they love the Malibu wake. I have a line on a nice 2016 22vlx but it has the Diamond Hull. I know the older Wakesetters with Diamond Hulls didn’t produce big enough wakeboard wakes. Are the new Diamond Hulls better for that? When I’ve talked to dealers, they answer depending on what they have in stock. I’m looking for some real world wakeboarding advice. I’m not concerned with the surf wake. Thanks!
Looking for some input. I have a new LSV 25, just came out of a 2016 Axis A24. One thing that is very different has been figuring out the right combination for a nice wakeboard wake that is very rampy and sharp. I had an easy time with my Axis, but my LSV under power creates a much stronger starboard lean. I have put 300 lbs of weight on the port side but still have to unevenly load up the ballast bags. In the past I was running about 21-22 and 65% full on back bags (Sumo 750's) with full front and another 100 lbs of steel shot bags on my Axis made a very clean wake. The lean under
Virginiaray posted a topic in Malibu Boats - General Discussion AreaConsidering purchasing either an LX or LXi (98 to 2007 on both) looking for a great slalom wake at 15/22 off at 32 MPH in an open bow for versatility and family. I can't find any for sale or test ski, in my area but have skied behind a 2000 Sport Nautique and a 2000 Ski Nautique. Any comparisons, especially to the Sport as it is also open bow. Appreciate the input! Considering purchasing a boat long distance but want to understand what to expect before I make the 10+ hour trip.
