    Woof! She is a screamer!!! Love listening to her move down the lake.

      That said, I was able to surf behind it without the rope with absolutely no weight added.

      My advice: Skip the plug-and-play ballast if you can. It's very expensive and cripples the rider settings and ballast timers. Take the same money and build your own system with dedicated pumps.
      The boat does have the plug and play, but I'll plumb some sacs right in if I buy it. Hopefully this doesnt screw the settings.

        LSA is the basically the most powerful engine in a tow boat....period!
        So, essentially, this 25 would be 4500 pounds of steel and sex appeal?

        I have a buddy who swears by wakesetters and another who thinks it's common knowledge that Tige is the best. Can't wait!!!

            It will not. Everything ahold work as advertised.

                Wow - LSA in a X25 would be awesome. I wish I could afford to order one up that way.

                I have been looking at upgrading my old BU 21' VLX for a better surf wake, larger wakeboard wake, more interior room, and a better ride for those 2 times a year where Lake Powell makes the boat seem pretty small.

                I have been trying to do some research on the X25 verses a used X45 with a 8.1 as I live at over 5000' elevation and hate how underpowered boats perform with extra ballast. Any additional input from direct experience on these two boats is appreciated.

                  milehigh guy, the supercharged engine should be better, in regards to performance, at altitudes if not just change the pulley to spin the supercharger faster
