Hi guys,

This is my first post, so go easy on me.

I have read countless of posts, getting mixed information so I decided to start one, hopefully with the ultimate info on getting the best wake possible for 50k or less. (helping anyone in my situation in having a one stop post with all info, as well).

A bit of background, I currently own a 98 Super Sport Nautique, which I wakeboard behind with around 3.200 lbs in ballast, plus 2 people. I am 32 years old and am an intermediatte/advanced rider, with a few mobes, 5s and a hs 7. I ride 5 times a week and am on the national wakeboard team of my country (I live in South America). Gas here is around 4 dollars per gallon.

So let's dive right in:

- old 210 nautique is fine, but as a serious rider I sense boats and wakes have drifted away from the short transition/abrupt pop, style of wake.

- Ideally I want to get a G21, but have a max budget of 50k (which I then have to import, ending with a final price of around 90k after paying freight and import tariffs ).

- I mainly care about wake size/type, mechanical reliance and fuel consumption. Boat candidates are:

1.) Used 2012 Malibu MXZ 22 with 409 engine.
2.) Used 2007 Mastercraft X-star with LY6 engine.

I discarded both Axis A22 and Nautique 230, since the wake does not seem to be all that better than the 210, from what I have read.

Am leaning towards MXZ since it seems to have better fuel consumption, and less mechanical issues than the X-Star. I know getting a 2012 for 50k is currently a strech, but I am in no rush and would be searching for one as the year progresses.

Hope to get everyone's input, and make a wise decision with this future purchase. thanks
