Tige' 21i
-I have a 2003 Tige' 21i with the new hull and i love it.
Test drove and rode behind before bought

Pros
-The wake has been clean regardless of how much weight i put in it.
-Got it cause it had the wake that i liked.
-i got the direct drive because it had more room than the comprable size v-drive
-i really liked the reverse skybox seating in the back.
-It has tons of storage space.
-Gets up and goes pretty quick.
-I really like how the walls are high and i don't have to worry about water coming over.
-nice to be able to trim the nose of the boat up and down in rough water to make a smoother ride.
-Contoured seats in the front are awesome.
-boats really wide with a 102 beam and being 21 feet 4 inches is nice.
-real heavy and feels solid in the rough water.
-Seats are really comfortable too.
-the swim platform is the biggest i have ever seen.
-pop up cleats awesome

Cons
-if you add too much weight to the back the nose of the boat will ride too high (even with taps).
-cooler is too small.
-not sure how good the carpet is
-it would be dificult to add another battery
-it would be difficult to add a ballast pump system without voiding the warrenty (can't put any holes in the boat)
-the factory bemini top could be a little higher

I have the same boat. Love it. I have the Type-R, but I've ripped the big graphic off of the side, and I'm replacing with the limited.

Some mods I've done:
Heater, Shower, Stereo

Some mods that will be done within 4 weeks or so:
Perfect pass, 04 captain seat (with bolster), more stereo work :-)

I also have the 21i limited. I love this boat. It has a ton of room and a great wake. I tested many different boats and rode behind them all and I chose this based on wake, value. The interior is nicer than other boats I looked at, wakesetter, supra ss. The boat handles rough water very well and my wife is comfortable driving it. I wouldn't change anything about the 21i.

paid for
Huge vert wake
solid boat
cheap insurance
cheap and easy motors to work on

excellent resale

2000 Tige 2300V

Love it. Can have tons of people out and everyone is comfortable. Wake is fine without weight, and gets better the more you throw in it.

Cons: Not much fun trailering it on back roads.

’02 Supra SSV

What I Love
Big, clean wake
Up to 2500 lbs of ballast, hidden and factory-plumbed
Hydraulic wakeplate
Huge storage spaces
Largest cockpit of any boat <22’
Great factory support

What I Really Like
Low, vertical transom makes putting boards on easier
Playpen and seating options, especially the “Double Up”
Top-grade materials
Lots of standard features (radio/CD, flip-up bolster, pop-up cleats, depth gauge, etc.)
Great price and value

What I Would Change
Older-looking graphics (so I didn’t get any graphics)
Steering is a little stiff
Could be a little quieter
Ski pylon does not collapse
A little more aggressive prop (actually, I did change this)

94 MC PS 205

Pros
I'm 19 and own the boat I only drooled over when I was 10.
Paid for.
Didn't pay 40K for it so I don't have a problem when it gets scratched or abused a little.
It's all mine.
Best boat on my lake.

Cons
Not a lot of storage.
Small gas tank.
Stock prop sucks.
It's not an X-Star
