|Whos got some pics and info on the 05 Tiges? The 22V Riders is my new dream boat. Saw it in the Newest WBM.|
|Here is the 22V Tige had at SurfExpo, sweet ride. I love my 22V but since all the Tige riders are now behind the 24V I have a new dream boat. Check out the 24V as well - HUGE and tons of storage - amazing wake also. |
|I have seen several of those big things on the center of the tower on Tiges. What does it do?|
|That looks like the Skireel WakePro. |
|Not sure if I like those towers. The Skireel would be nice though. |
|I posted pics of my 24V a while back. The boat is beautiful and very roomy, but handles like a smaller boat in tight situations. It handles rough water better than my 21V did. |
|Looks alot like they are copying The Malibu tribal graphics. What up with that?|
|I think Tige' is getting back at Malibu for copying the "wider beam" idea. :-)|
|I think they have had those graphics as an option for a while cause you can put them on most tiges.|
|those graphics actually just came out early this summer. they also have the west coast graphics which are similar but different. The new tower is a foot taller than the old one and it is amazing. the boat i board behind which is the first 05 22v has all the new stuff. my best friend got it back in april and it was the first boat with all the new stuff. its awesome and i suggest you try the new tower before dissin it. |
|"similar but different" isn't that an oxymoron. J/K From an engineering standpoint I would think they would have problems with stress cracks around the cracks or the hole thing swiveling around the clamps, msut work though. If that is an option on Tige's how long before the others start offering it|
|"The boat I board behind which is the first 05 22v has all the new stuff, My best friend got it back in April and it was the first boat with all the new stuff". |
Not likely your friend got an "05" back in April.
|its likely when the owner and creator of tige lives down the street and you have known him and his family for years... the tower was a prototype and it was the first to be tested out and he also had the 05 graphics on his boat before anyone else. the boat came in april 28th. its kind of like knowing the creator of hyperlite. im sure hyperlite has there 05 stuff being made a lot earlier before they actually come out.... you think its possible.... id say so|
|Anyone Know when the 2005 Models will be on the site? Thanks|
| In about two more weeks the new site should be up and running.|

|Great, cant wait to check it out. Id like to see some other color combos. I think that it was about time that tige added another color panel this year. Tiges are one of the sweetest looking boats on the lake. Nothing wrong with a clean, sweet ride but sometimes folks want more than three color panels to choose from. Nice to know there will be some new color combos out there now. Great move by Tige. |
|Is Tige in a nutshel growing as a company? I heard their numbers were way down the last few years? I do like the new graphics...|
|J.Cox - Tige's numbers have been going up lately and I think either 2003 or 2004 was the biggest selling year in history. Each year they keep innovating their design and taking the bad things and making them better. It seems like they have been listening to customers because each year the boats get nicer and nicer. |
|Just got back from the dealer meeting in Houston. Our numbers are definately up as a company. I know most of us western US dealers had record sales in model year '04. |
The web site will be up in a week or two with all the updates.
All in all, I am really looking forward to '05!
i have seen you guys riding out on lytle. You guys rip hard. I have always balisted my boat with water tanks, but it looks like you guys use girls. I guess when you ride with the ceo of tige's son...the girls are all about a day on the lake. and from what i have heard about ben...they are preatty wild. whenever you guys want to pick me up with one on that sweet 2005 24v...i will buy the gas and beer. anything to socialize with those girls
|Yeah ben pigeon is a pretty crazy guy. The man does know how to party and have a good time. somebody told me he has a name on this thing and i should figure out what it is or something. i wonder if he is enjoying school at rollins. now that guy knows how to load the boat with women. you should get to know him.|
|HE IS WATCHING|
|Tige boats keeps getting better. |
No more crumble wakes, wood in the hull, or fugly towers.
They deserve credit for constantly pushing forward.
|Thanks Dane, that is high praise coming from you! |
I know from lurking here that you have done your homework regarding boat performance and wake characteristics better than most on this board.
Charlie truly does listen to his dealers, riders and especially the end users...you guys!
|Just went by the dealer today and checked out the new graphics and they are sweeeeeeetttttttttt!!!!!! The tower looks awesome and the interior is the best that I have ever seen it look. The color schemes that he ordered had me drooling. I told him that I am going to trade my 02 in next week.|
|Tige's definately made big improvements. I hadn't been in one for a while then went in one this past Summer. Bad as hell. Problem with So-Cal is the Tige dealer has some tie in with Phat Buddie stuff. Cheapens the Tige name in my opinion. |
