It is sick. You aint stuntin if you aint rolling an X80. If you don't believe me ask Lon. You can even load them up so much that they sink and they still come back stuntin.

Unless you don't have damn near 5000 pounds in the boat or 12 people, it is nearly impossible to sink the boat to get a good wake out of it and even when you do, it is so speed and weight sensitive that getting a clean lip is almost impossible The dual throttles makes it damn near impossible to drive and the dual engine really messes up the perfect pass. The wake is about as wide as the boat is long. I felt like i was cutting in for an elephant to just do a toeside wake jump riding at 80 feet. It was the first time i shortened the rope to 75 feet in years except the good part of the wake was still at 80. It's more of just a party boat.
