The negative chatter regarding wash and inconsistency about the wake is what I was referring to, specifically.
I saw the big wake video too, and it looked really good to me, and it sounds like we both heard Rusty's comment... he liked it. So far so good at that point right? But it was a produced video. Seriously though, a 24 foot X-Star? That should be just about exactly right in terms of what their flagship could be so I am wondering how they got it wrong enough to push it out a year. According to that behind-the-scenes'ish video on their web site, they were working on this new X-Star at least as far back as 2009. I am just surprised that negative feedback about the wake on this thing - enough negative feedback to send them back to the drawing board - got out at all. If they were testing a prototype (but were telling everyone it's the final product), then it's terrible all around. I have no reason to believe that's the case though. If they were testing a final mold... then it's another matter, and I understand a little bit more how the information would spread. I just don't know what to think with regard to this boat. Other stuff they are doing seems right, but everything X-Star in the past 4 months has gone crappy for them. And I know MasterCraft DOES THEIR HOMEWORK when it comes to X-Star. They are stumbling right now but I'm not counting them out. I can't afford one, but I'm not hearing their death knell.

They will start 2013 production sometime in July. Since they are now calling it a 2013, I wouldn't hold your breath for a production boat anytime before July.

Looks like the video is back up.

Erik. I agree with what you are saying. Its so confusing to me. I would expect a video like they produced to come out of a startup such as Pavati, rushing to get wake and boat videos out to get people talking. But this is MC. Their video was horrible. I was fortunate to meet a very important MC guy(s) this summer and was able to ask a bit about the xstar. It was just after the xstar video release. I asked if that video was an accitdental release, they said no, that was an MC release. Then I gave them my opinion on why it was a bad move. they were all very open to what I had to say but seemed to be a bit confused, as if they had not really seen the video, which I highly doubt because they were defending it on some of my points.

I too will never buy one, and will not spend 100k+ on any boat, so it doesnt really matter. its just really really interesting to see a company that has been doing it right for so long make so many problems for themselves.

I am also not a fan of the "platypus" pickles.
