New OIB.... Tige?
MB is making me an F24 still but looking at a late June spray date with delivery not till after the July 4th. They just had so many pre-sold to customers that it wouldn't be fair to build mine before theirs.

So, I had just put a deal together with SkipperBuds Marine on a pontoon and figured I would tell my buddy Glenn about my predicament. Glenn and Tige really stepped up to work me a super deal on a new Tige Z3. Picking it up Friday, pics to come. pretty psyched as the Z3 was one of the boats at the top of my "if I could have any boat" list.

Loaded with rev10s, Tige touch, and all the goodies. Anyone in the Chicagoland area really should make it over to their Volos store to check out their inventory.

Congrats . I checked out a Tige in Volo in 2008. From what I have seen on line Tige has really stepped up in the last few years. I wish there was a dealer near me to check them out personally.

Ian, what colors are you going with?

ScottR 05-22-2012 6:55 AM

So Ian are you going to have two boats or did you cancel the other order?

Nice work.... Congrats man! Looking forward to pics. Will be interested to see what you end up rocking next year......

Wow trying to pick between my two favorite boats of the year

The z3 is awesome and when you check the boat you'll notice all the little things they did with the ergonomics to make it comfy, I feel like the wake has yet to be explored though...

Chatt, i just went with one they had in stock. Looks just like this one - http://wakeboardingmag.com/boats/201...keboard-boats/

Yep, i'll have two boats. When the F24 Arrives the Z3 will be for sale for a stellar deal of course :) will throw some lead in the Z3 and make sure to get some pics.

simplej 05-22-2012 7:58 AM

So the z3 is for like 3 weeks...what?

Tiges take a bit to get dialed in just a heads up

timmyb 05-22-2012 8:00 AM

Congrats! I love that color combo on the Z3's!

wakereviews 05-22-2012 8:04 AM

I'll have it most likely for 6 weeks I'm thinking.

SkySki 05-22-2012 8:20 AM

Just tie them together and then you can have two wakes.

timmyb 05-22-2012 8:24 AM

Are you just demoing it for 6 weeks or are you actually buying it and then selling it 6 weeks later?

simplej 05-22-2012 8:59 AM

Do you have a deal with mb or something??

wakereviews 05-22-2012 9:06 AM

Yes, I have a deal with MB.

timmyb 05-22-2012 9:12 AM

What happens if you like the Tige better? LOL!

lifetimewarranty 05-22-2012 10:44 AM

WOW Ian! Good problems to have! (now if I can just get my bimini before your tige shows up...);)

How on earth did you get Mike to buy off on this??

xstarrider 05-22-2012 3:56 PM

This is actually pretty funny. I went in around Oct to look at the Tige line. I was an old Centurion rep. Pretty involved in the scene still up there have a place on on a private lake up there 15 min from their Colo store. They wouldn't budge at all on their boats. Typical Skipper Buds. The wanted 55k for a minimally option R20. And close to 70 for a RZR. I would have gladly had them call me and have me take customers out and go through the boats as their sales staff really isn't wakeboat knowledgeable. They wouldn't budge whatsoever. Now the boats are still sitting on the showroom with 10 k off the sticker and they are lending out boats....:............Awesome. their stickers are 8k above anywhere else with the Tige line. They are more concerned about selling 100k Sea Rays and could care less about the wakeboat side. That's why skiers choice dropped them. Their other stores do well, but for some reason that Colo store is cursed.
It was between the r20 and that z1 tthey had.

xstarrider 05-22-2012 3:57 PM

BTW Ian are you coming to the bill store then on Fri? Shoot me a pm and I will stop by and say what's up and check it out.

cwb4me 05-22-2012 5:00 PM

IAN if you want to know how to dial in the surf wake Ragboy has a thread on WW and TO. He has the stock ballast set up and the pro wake setup.As far as wakeboard wake they like weight in the nose.I surfed a Z3 with stock ballast and 4 adults on board. The wake was huge and had tons of push. Enjoy your new toy!:D

wakereviews 05-22-2012 6:51 PM

Yeah I will be in the Volo store Friday morning as early as possible as it's a 3.5 hour drive each way and I want to get the boat in the water Friday and on the lift. Stop in and say hi, I will be the short fat guy picking up a new z3 haha.

hatepain 05-22-2012 7:30 PM

I'm gonna snap one of these boats from you one of these years. Have fun buddy those are nice ass boats, a friend of mine just picked on up.
