  • X-15 vs X-2

    So I've got the new boat itch, abd I've been looking at the 30 vs 2 vs 10. I really only wakeboard anymore, since everyone and their cousin surfs now. So for best wakeboard wakes, what's gonna put out the best loaded or wake? All around better boat? Any wake pics would be awesome! Just wondering what is my best option vs staying with my current boat.

      The new X10's are sweet though small compared to the 15/25/30. I don't know if the 10 or 30 will throw a better wake than your X15 though. 501s did post some wake pics of his X30 slammed and it does look big and clean. If you are all about the wakeboard wake though I'd second the old XStar.

          Looking at new for sure. Dont want to be without a warranty. got a good use out of the warranty on my 15. Really want a new 30! going to TX MC tomorrow to look and hopefully get my boat back.

            no thoughts on the wake of an x2?

              Don't know much about the X2 but I've never heard if it having a better wake than 25 or 30. The 30 is in a different league size-wise too than the X2 or X10. Ask yourself how big a boat you want. X2 and X10 will be noticeably smaller.

                I've ridden behind an X-2 a few times. As my buddy says, it's a bit mellow (and he's a good rider) I think it takes a lot of extra weight to get a large wake out of it.

                I don't know how the new X10 and X30 wakes are, but models that put out the best wakeboard wake goes something like this.

                X-star
                X-25 (or CSX)
                X-15
                X-2

                Keith Lyman made a comment to me once that he loved the wake of the X-15, so if you want to improve on your boat's wake I think your best bet is an X-25 or '04-'12 X-star.
                Maybe you can find a slightly used X-star with a transferable waranty?

                  ^^^^I didn't want to say it because the OP never mentioned it (assuming he already eliminated it) but the X25 will have the best wakeboard wake of the bunch plus still surf well. If the OP is considering the X2 I'm assuming he doesn't have a problem with the picklefork either.

                    i bought an '08 X2 this summer, wakeboarded behind once and then went home and ordered the full fly high set up for it - very mellow with stock ballast...

                      I have an X30 and the wakeboard wake is very good with extra weight. With just factory its good but not amazing, but add another 1-2k and it gets excellent. what i like most is the wake stays clean at all speeds and lenghts, evwn when its got 2500 of ballast. ive posted quite a few pics of the wake as well as some vids here on TT. i havent ridden an X15 but was told the 30 is like a larger X15 wake.

                        X25 is hard to beat.....but I might be a little biased.

                            Just to add some more info. i came from a boat with a steeper wake but it was finiky. weight and balance had to be perect otherwise the wake would wash out. on the new x30 this is never a problem. its always clean and consistent and this is probably one of my favorite things avout the boat.

                            And drive an X30 too. it drives amzing for a 23.5 ft boat. sooooo nimble.
