Eh I am underwhelmed about the hype surrounding the 21 wake. I much prefer the 23 wake. It is not much bigger but has a much better shape. The lip on the 21 wake is obnoxious for a wake that big IMO...

Skill and creativity are two very different things.


It doesn't take much thinking outside the box to push a 1080 another 180 degrees. Just a well loaded g23 and a highly skilled rider.

2016 Nautique G23 or 2016 Mastercraft X23

I'm not an MC "hater", I just think Nautique took the crown.

I used to wish for the picklefork Xstar. Now I wouldn't touch the new gen based solely on the existence of the g23 (FYI not a g21 fan...

^that.



It's really the dealer game that's the hardest, not manufacturing.

The smaller brands, yes, probably.

But I know for a fact that the OP for the larger brands is, shall we say, better than you think.

MSRP is, we will call it theoretically, a roughly 100%...

Could be meniscus but I did mine at the same time as my ACL so I'm not sure if the symptoms were mutually exclusive to one or the other.

I can vouch for the RZR. Punches well above its weight for a 20ftr.

The biggest issue I have with the boat is the size, it's small, and it feels small. The wake is, as a result finicky for...

I have ridden many boats of many sizes and have not seen a boat that matches the build quality or wake quality of the G series boats.

2nd Gen Star vs 2016 MB 21

Fill everything and that wake should be money.

My neighbor has the fly high pro system plus 350 in the walk way and it is money. Favorite wake I have ever ridden

Even with. 6,000 dollar ski boat with flight pipe, you're gonna hit a wall at some-point.

Tige fit and finish is bad? What planet are you on?

It's easily on par with any MC I have been on (many).

No one holds a candle to nautique though.
