I have a '97 VLX and love it. Depending how you weight it, you can get almost an original Xstar wake to a super mellow but big wake with a long smooth transition.

I will have to check my rudder, it has been a while since I have greased it. I thought I remember reading steering cables only last 8-10 years before needing replacement. I replaced mine in '07...
