|I jus got this boat, a v-drive ski centurian cyclone, it throws a nice wake but i don kno about how it compares with the other leading wake board boats, ne one got ne info??} |
|What year Cyclone did you get?|
|2003 its a brand new demo with 30 hours|
|I'd really like to see some wake pics if your've got any. That boat has the right dimensions to throw it large IMO.|
|I will take some pictures|
|i dont have ne personal pics but ill try to get some soon, it throws a nice wake compared to the x star but not quite as big but its plenty for me, in the meen time try http://www.ultimate-watersports.com/brochure.asp?display=eb&ebaction=&ebtemplate=ultimate&indid=1&tab=1&siteid=&bvdid=2541&modelid=29665&reflink=&cid=3965|
|Nice picture but wrong year that is a 2002 |
|I have a 2000 Centurion Eclipse V-drive, Air Warrior, which is pretty much the same boat as yours. Most people that ride behind it think the wake is phat. I've had a pro rider in it before and he told me that he had no idea the wake on those boats was so big. I usually fill the ballast, put a 550 lb sack in front of the rear bench seat, plus two 250 lb sacks up front. I think the seating is different on yours, though, so you'll have to play with it. Once you dial it in I think you'll be really happy.|
|The 2000 and 2003 are totaly different boats. The hull on the 2003 Cyclone is like the avalanche hull. Take a look at this picture |
Can you post a pic of the '03 Hurricane stern from the same angle if you've got it? Thanks.
This one just came in to my local dealer
|This is the Avalanche from the same angle |
|ok thanx guys yeah it threw a pretty wicked wake today we had the three ballast filled plus two more fat sacks in the back and one in the front... took a while to plain up though it handles the weight really well. |
|It's interesting. If you look closely, the stern corners on the Hurricane has pockets in it and the Avalanche and Cyclone don't. Anyone know the reason for the difference in the molds? It seems this is the reason my wake tends to roll over easier when it's a little choppy.|
|The Hurricane is a legacy hull. The Cyclone Enzo and Avalanche are all new hulls that where designed with wakeboarders in mind. The Hurricane/Elite V drive is an old ski hull|
I always thought that the pockets in the back off the Hurricane were there to let the hull "sink" into the water easier? maybe?
Kevin I never thought the Hurricane shared it's hull with anything, especially a slalom boat? The slalom wake is recreational at best. But I have been wrong before. Later
|Centurion uses different hulls for all their boats|
Obviously the hull that is under a 23 foot boat is not eaxctly the same as a 20'5" boat having said that the Cyclone is a small version of the Avalanche hull.
You are right to say the Hurricane slalom wake is recreational at best. However the spray pockets in all the boats can be traced back to the Falcon slalom boat. There intention was to noke down the spray from the side of the boat. LIke almost all inboards and V drives they start with a exsisting hull and modify from there
|dudes i rocked my cyclone all year i love it its soooo sock it compares very closely to a malibu ecept with out the fit and finish. that is a new hull for 2003 and its rad you have to have the trim tab when you go over 30mph though and its a super cheap boat..|
|I LOVE MINE! they do the job and the price is right. |
|I have ridden behind several centurions, and I think they kick some major butt. Good pop, nicely formed doubleups, and a pretty clean wake @ 70' and 23mph.|
