Wish I had the BF200 back - except for the lack of room

If you are used to skiing slalom behind a BF 200 the V drive will take some getting used to. Play with ballast in the bow like some have suggested. And keep that ski on edge thru both wakes, boats with small wakes a very forgiving, V drive and bigger boats not so much.

Good luck

If you're not happy with it, I'll take it off your hands for a good price. I'm looking for a 2002-2003 205V/X-Star/X-2, etc.

I've got an '01 205v and I ski @ 34mph. Is the wake smooth? No, but I've never been afraid of getting hurt bad. Then again I'm not a course skier and just like to have fun. My son doesn't like to ski but is getting better on his wakeboard so I think I got the right boat for us.

Get your weight down as much as possible. Nothing in the belly tank, and 50 to 100lbs. in the nose. If you have a wake plate put that down to raise the transom. Try at least 30 mph and go for 15 off min and preferably 22 off. As was said, stay on edge through the wake. It won't be as soft as the BF200 wake, but you should be able to ski it aggressively. If you're forward or back on the ski you'll probably notice. If you're forward the ski will want to stop at the wake and you will likely go out the front. If you're back, expect to launch and get some decent air.

If you're coming off a barefoot 200 this ski wake is going to be humongous!!!!!! However when compared to other v drive wakeboats it's minute. Throw some weight in the bow. If u don't have extra run with the KGB. If you were looking for a v drive "ski" boat this boat is one of the best of its era at its price point, but the wake will be hard and have a bump compared to any d drive.......even more so compared to a barefoot 200.

What speeds are u runing? 33 seems to flatten it out the most

At empty my slalom wake isn't terrible. Its not great compared to my neighbors malibu (direct drive vs v drive) however its pretty good.
I just added a Bennett wakeplate to my X2 this past week. Hope to get out this weekend and try it out. Will report back with pics. Up till now, I've not found this hull to be too bad at 32 with 15 off. Main thing is be sure you maintain the edge through the bumps of the wake. I try to ski with no more than 1/2 a tank and only a couple of people. I also have the integrated bow sac which I will add a couple hundred pounds to.

Wheelerd I would be very very curious how that tab performed for wakeboarding, surfing , and skiing I am sure there would be a couple dozen people with the same curiosity. Start a thread with some results

You bet. I've taken pics of the whole install and am planning to start a thread once I have some pics on the water.
