    Hey all. I'm finding the goofy wave to have a little lip on the top of it. The regular side wave is much cleaner. Typically we run 600# lead (150 under each stern bag, 100 under each tower mount point, and 100 in bow locker) and we have anywhere from 2 to 6 adults in the boat. Playing with tabs and lead placement enables us to tweak the wave, but the goofy side consistently has a much less cleaner "takeoff" spot when trying to do any sort of jumps. My latest theory is that the starboard side of the swim platform digs into the water and causes the problem. I'm contemplating temporarily removing the platform to run a test. So my questions are (a) does anybody have any experience which leads you to believe that removing the platform would make a difference? (b) how difficult is it to remove the platform? The boat is wet-slipped in 10' of water.

    Thanks for any thoughts,

    TJ

You know our boat setup ('19 X22, 6000GDI, 2:1; 5400' elevation); most of the time we're running 150# of lead in the front, 100% ballast in all tanks including Mid, with 1 to 2 passengers in the boat with one surfing.

    It's a noticeable difference from the factory 18x16 but there's plenty of holeshot for that setup. No complaints at all- RPM's dropped to about 3050 at 10.8 and 3200 at 11.4, and fuel consumption seems to be considerably down.

    That said, as soon as we go to 6-10 passengers onboard, it's not enough prop and we have to run ballast around 50-60% to maintain performance.

    So- great prop if any of your customers are not hauling a lot of crew and want better G6
    PH, but stick with your other recommendations for anyone rolling heavy."

    Also, I need to keep tweaking settings and or moving weight, but I am not having a ton of luck with the settings from moose; the wave gets pushier, but a lot washier towards the tail and it's throwing some folks off when they get too far down the wave.
    I'm here in Colorado running the 18x15.5 and love it with the 6.2 motor. I think it is the sweet spot for running at 5,000'-6,000'. We have around 6-8 passengers and run 200 lbs of lead in the bow because everyone like to sit in the back and most like a longer wave.

    Ive had a lot of depth finder issues, and the weird not matching music thing as well. My depth finder transducer was replaced. Apparently that was a well known issue. Still didn't work - then the cable between the screens was replaced. I won't see the boat again for a couple weeks, but my dealer says it all works now. I'll let you know.

    Settings provided by Moose at the start of this thread, I was expecting a big improvement over the X25 but this still blew me away!!

    3 People in the boat. Rider is 6ft 2

    Finally got around to swapping out the carpet for Seadek. I used SC Wake as they have the templates for the X22 and the fitment was spot on.

    Unfortunately, that’s not my truck, it belongs to the dealer, we met at the lake to do the lake test, he’s a long time friend of mine so I’ll ask for ya!

    They get the XT convertible seat with Seadeck step in the middle of rear seat. Some other cool features I probably shouldn't talk about. It's nice that MC listens to it's customers. Good changes to all canvas.
