A guy I coach with BU burns like 13 gal/hr @ over 4k rpms (???) surfing, while my MC with the GDI motor burns 4 gal/hr surfing at 3,200 rpms.

When I have my 05 VLX the wedge helped create a great wake but I broken it twice. After moving to a MC i never have to worry about that.

Itís just asking for someone to rip a transom off

I have a couple things to say...

The wedge is a good idea, it just wasn’t executed very well imo. My buddy used to have a BU with the wedge (I convinced him to get a X24) and it threw out a great wave- the fuel consumption though was out of this world.

We had our boats down in Powell, and my “old” X30 hands down was way more fuel efficient. I surf at about 3,300 rpm vs. the BU at like 4K+

Also- didn’t MC experiment with a wedge back in 06 or 07? I recall it being called the MC aero wedge or something. Obviously it never caught on.

Wedge sucks. High gas milage, engine noise. Drivability is terrible

Malibu style wedge on a MC

I do not need a better wave or another boat anchor.

Didn't chuck hook his on a stump a year or so after they had it retrofitted to their malibu?

I owned a power wedge equipped Bu in the past, and I drive one regularly. I stand by my statements.

There is good reason that no other boat manufacturer has copied the wedge.
That is incorrect sir

Again, I am not trying to debate the subject. I personally like it and would love to see MC come out with something along similar lines

What is incorrect?


We are happy you like it, but I think most other wakeboat owners are happier with the benefits of a center plate.

If you want a wedge, get a Bu?!?

I swore off power wedgies many years ago in summer camp. Too painful.

But if you like it thatís all that matters.
