A search will yield much information on the topic. Sometimes it has gotten lively. I love my 2005 24V and also enjoyed my 2002 21V. The older boats had some difficulty with wash on top of the wake when heavily weighted. With no ballast, my 21V wake was the best unweighted wake I have yet to see. Persons with good technique could go very big off of it. If I weighted it, it got even bigger, but I had to do it properly.
I think you need to test drive, test drive, test drive. Find a good dealer to work with. There are many good boats out there, and a good or bad dealer will change the way you perceive your boat.
I do beleive the TAPS system and Convex hull to be the best design for me and my boating needs - It has a great wakeboard wake and handles rough water at higher speeds than without the TAPS. Many other boats have a wakeplate that also helps but the Tige hull is different in shape that complements the plate better.
