|Tige' 21i |
-I have a 2003 Tige' 21i with the new hull and i love it.
Test drove and rode behind before bought
-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
-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.|
|X-Star ('01) |
lots of storage
rough water will beat you to death at speed.
|86 Ski Nautique 2001 |
Huge vert wake
cheap and easy motors to work on
generally easy to maintain
Small interior seats 4 comfy sacked out
Have to watch for wood rot
Hate the drain plug location
When heavily sacked out watch your nose (not a problem if you have a competent driver)
Lack of storage (a tower helps)
|2002 Supreme V Pro Sky 315 HP |
Great value for the money
Great service from my dealer
Good wake with stock balast full
Loads of interior space
Well built compared to top brand names
Loads of standard features
Handles rough water very well
Phat Buddie tower (no brackets)
Nice to tow
Not sure about carpet quality
Not sure about resale value
Tough to change oil myself (like all v-drives)
Don't get to use it enough (live in the great white north)
|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 SANTE |
(with no bags on the floor)
not tiring to drive
and it's mine!
gullwing observers seat
|’02 Supra SSV |
What I Love
Big, clean wake
Up to 2500 lbs of ballast, hidden and factory-plumbed
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”
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 |
I'm 19 and own the boat I only drooled over when I was 10.
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.
Not a lot of storage.
Small gas tank.
Stock prop sucks.
It's not an X-Star
|98 Mobius |
Lots of room
Plenty of power even fully weighted
Lots of storage
Tiny gas tank
no shower(has the hookups, but first owner removed it.)
had to upgrade the upholstery due to tears.
|2003 Sanger V210 |
Lots of room
Plenty of power
Lot's of storage
Handles great in rough water
Heater is great in the winter
Tracks real good
Perfect Pass is killer
Tower is great can hold 12 boards easy
2 out of 3 coolers are great the large cooler needs more insulation
Need longer days so we can ride longer
