Have over 30 hours on the new boat now so I figured I should post some pictures. After shopping many other brands and models we decided we liked the VLX the best. It was a custom order and so far it has been awesome. It's difficult to see in the pictures but all of the red accents are metallic, it really looks amazing on the water.
Picking it up from the dealer:
It fits in the garage!
Got the Exile XM9’s installed in the upper corners with their tower adaptors and also got a new “straight” hoop so it doesn’t have to be removed for the garage each time:
The new fast fill ballast and the Maliview presets are excellent. We can switch from beginner to advanced riders with the push of a button. By the time your board is strapped on we are ready to go, the settings are perfect and repeatable, and the pumps shut themselves off. I also plumbed in some extra bags using Johnson pumps for those wanting more than stock ballast and the wake was outstanding. Big and clean! The G3 tower is rock solid, and I really like the new Boatmate trailer too, great design features and quality.
I wanted to spend some time on it before giving a brief review, and it’s really been a great boat with not a single problem. No complaints here!
