Our X-Star wake is definintely mediocre at best.
Ha, ha, ha.
Incidently Tony rides for Epic. He may be a bit biased. FWIW: There are a ton of people on here that have affiliations with various boat companies. Does it bias their opinion? Of course it does. Should you listen to any of us? Maybe, but you should also develop your own opinion. At the end of the day there are a ton of great wakes out there. It really depends what you want our of your experience. The Epic is a cool boat. The Axis is a very cool boat for the money. The SAN's are a classic and sweet. They will always hold their value. The X-star sucks-----a ton of fuel, but has a kick-A$$ wake.
I've ridden so many great boats over the years. I can honestly say my favorite wake is a X-star. That's not to say that it'd be my first choice to purchase, but the wake it KILLER.
Also, keep in mind that you'll need to get a few rides behind a boat before developing your opinion. Make sure it's weighted right. The first time I rode behind a X-star I hated it. It's a very differently shaped wake. If you ride a older 210 SAN, then jump to a Star you likely wont like it. Same could be said in reverse.
