Unless you really want a new boat...buying a new X2 for the 350 extra lbs is pointless. The fly high bags will fit an 08 perfectly fine and you'd end up wanting them on a new one anyways

I run the fly high set up on my boat. I think its 450 in each back locker and 700 in the front under the seats. The best wake I ever had was that plus two 500lb bags along the middle of the floor but...

I think that Mastercrafts and Nautiques are built for a different purpose than Malibus. I rode on a VLX and to this day it is my favorite wake but I bought a Mastercraft X2 because I keep my boat on...

An rtp-1. I do take very good care of it though and if were buying a new boat would definitely buy a SS just for the full closed cooling and better engine mounts. When I bought my boat, though, they...

Jordan - The axis with the SS engine looks like a solid boat. It's nice a simple which is good for salt as most wake boats have gotten way too gimmicky plus I really like that tatami mat that they...

While I agree that a SS is best, your friend must have not taken very good care of his boat or it was a lemon. I have an 06 X2 that is not a salt water series with just closed cooling and a flush...

I have a lot of experience in salt and have had an x2 that I use exclusively in salt for 6 years now. Will the boat be used in choppy conditions? Will it be trailered, kept on a lift or in the water?...

I would buy a MasterCraft saltwater series. Get a year old x2 or x15. As far as I know they are the only ones making a true salt water friendly wake boat (I could be wrong).

A salt water X2 will be almost the same thing as your X2. The difference will be the engine, hydraulic steering, and gas shocks. You can put closed cooling on your boat for a thousand bucks, the...

I agree with everything Reed said. My motor mounts are also fine just look rusty. You should be fine on the amps if they are stock. Those JLs that master craft uses are practically waterproof. When...
