Jason if I was a sales guy for a boat I would have come in here and asked everyone what they liked and disliked about my boat, so i could find out what the people think about the boat. Ask for other peoples outings on the boat and what they thought. Then if someone is reading this thread and likes the boat and what they hear Id give them more information about the boat and tell them to come on down to the shop and come look at one. thats just me. thought id try and give something you might find useful

I really want to know more about these sessions boats can you tell us about them Jason?
Are they both V drives? can you shoot some pics of the ones you have?
I think the problem with the sessions line is that people dont really know about them?? so please enlighten us.........

Tim , LOL. Maybe,just maybe, Jason is a broker/salesman for all the other tournament boat manufacturers. He has come on here to demise Sessions reputation. I have a hard time believing that his boss read this and laughed.Also I cannot believe that the Sessions reps. have not called Jason and told him to stop posting. Jason, you sound like a 11 year old spoiled illiterate brat. I tell you this, if I had bought a boat from you and read this forum ,I would tell everyone that I made a mistake and not to buy from you! Grow up, your 29(right)? PS. If this guy is for real and Sessions has done nothing to reppremand Jason, then I will tell everyone not to even look at a Sessions.

That is funny because it took me like three times to figure out what the hell Richard was trying to say.

Here's my opinion: That boat looks like a 9 year old tried to play Monster Garage with a ski boat.

Wow just read this whole post, anybody think these guys have actually wakeboarded more than a year?
Old    wakeupdude            06-16-2004, 9:37 PM Reply   
andrew...Who cares!? There's "NO RATTLES THREW THE DOUBLE UPS!!!!"

Seriously guys, these boats have all of the immentities that any wakeboarding enthusiast looks for when they are buying a new boat-ballast tank guages, big air wakes, and standard features!!!!

Mr. Jason Lewis, I am looking into purchasing one of these boats, but I need to know if they rattle through quadruple ups. If they don't I'll be on my way to pick one up. Thanks.

I'm not sure if the Session supporters are still reading this but I want to add my two cents. Session gets bashed every time it comes on this board because it is not a proven boat. The price is quite high to spend on a boat that is sketchy.

The other problem is that every time a Session thread is started on this board, it is started by someone who works for the company and it is supported by "first time" posters. It seems that Session is shamelessly promoting their product on wakeworld. First time posters have no credibility on this board. When someone is new and they and their first post is promoting this unproven boat then we have to question their motives. If your boat truly is great then in time it will sell itself. By you promoting this boat you are turning off potential buyers.

If someone like, Dane, Umali, Grant, Blabelmoch, xtigeman or other well respected wakeworld members promoted this boat then people will stand up and listen. Newbies need to show they know something before they start giving advice.

Look at other professionals who frequent this board. Monster Tower is very helpful and doesn't try to sell his products. He offers a great product but encourages others to look around and build things themselves. Rick Tinker and Matt Brown from Skiers Choice frequent this board but only chime in to help out their customers. They NEVER bash other boats and don't promote their own boats unless people have specific questions about them.

Look to at the posts these guys made if you want to gain respect.

Wow, and I thought WW was getting a bit dry these last few weeks. Ultimately, Im sad to report yet another so called "sales professional" has represented the sales industry so poorly. I invest in people first, then their product, unfortunately you have taken yourself out of the game..

You know reading those Session posts from last year it's almost like Session sent out a memo to their sales people telling them to register on discussion board occasionally and tell everyone how "hot" this boat is..."Me wasn't too sure whut to make of this boat but after day out on water I was like wow! Great wake, plows thru the double ups...I know this is my first post, I sell these boats for a living, and I have poor grammer and trouble conjugating verbs, but check out this untested $50K+ boat anyway.

Sessions are the best. This is what we all need to do. First get 100 grand together, either cash or credit. Next go buy a Session boat and put it in your garage or under that big shady tree in your yard. Now go buy a real wakeboard boat, Nautique, Mastercraft, Malibu, Supra, Tige' ...whatever!! Go wakeboarding on this second boat and video tape you and your friends having a great time!!! Now, here's the fun part, go to your new Session and pop in the tape/dvd you just made and you and all your friends can have a great time laughing in your yard/garage with your 50k home theatre system!!

What's up board seems to me like you guys missed me.... Hehehehe. The Malibu open was awesome!! No I didn't get fired and no I'm not trying to talk to you about the Session boats. I'm going to retire WW cause I'm in over my head with all you experienced boarders. I did happen to take a few grammar and spelling courses on my vacation. Thank you. You guys made me see the light with all your down talk. I will still continue to sell boats though. As matter a fact I sold one on Tues. I started to understand this whole sales thing with your guys help. I guess sometimes you need to hear you suck to make you stronger. I have now enrolled in some anger management classes and hope that they will help me to be more subjective to others opinions. Thanks you guys you have made me a better person!!!! Oh I happened to get some photos while I was out......hope you like. Once again thanks for your help!!!

I recently bought 04 Malibu Wakesetter LSV and before that I spent nearly 3 hours in Sessions' Fairfield dealership to look at the Sessions. No I did not test drove one and honestly I would not care to do so. Here is a little comparison which expresses my point of view:

1. Storage
Malibu - plenty, compartments beside the engine, under the seats (both sides) and big selfdrained cooler
S Si - 3(!) coolers (is this a drinking or fishing boat or what?), no other storage except of bow underseats.
S Xi - bow underseats
Storage wise Sessions are joke. What the hell they've been thinking?

Layout and 'roominess'
S Si - interesting concept with walk through transome and seating/cupholders in the back. However in the real life - the way I see it now using BU several times - it's a joke again. Si has so much fiberglass around that the seating area is very SMALL (perhaps smaller then with 21ft wakesetter). As far as the seating by the platform - again, in the real life I figured these would be useless

S Xi - purely experimental and for pure experimental folks. As much as I originally liked the concept of these two seats in the back - in the real life they block the view for the rest of people in the boat. Xi fits maybe 7 adults plus these 2 seats (but you don't want to assign these 2 seats to somebody) - too little for this size of a boat.

Malibu - no thrill old tradional seating for v-drive. Except of there is sooooooo much room that one feels kinda lost unless hauling 6 people with him:-). Anyway - no thrill but it delivers. All people can communicate yet 7 grownups plus driver plus 2 in the bow have plenty of room.

S Si and Xi - HORRIBLE cushions, very hard, uncomfortable seating. Isn't boating suppose to offer some relaxing? Who cares they say they use the heaviest vinyl when you can't sit on it?

Malibu - like mercedes. Cushions well done, great ergonomy. Feel of luxury throughout the boat. That's the way to do it.

I won't go on, it wouldn't make sense. The point I wanted to make was that in the real life Session offers very little to be desired. Who cares (really) that it handles through choppy watters when you don't wakeboard on choppy watters (at least I don't). No wonder it does not rattle (they claim) - Titanic wouldn't rattle either. From the other side - for the boating itself - carrying passengers, creating relaxing environment Session has not much to offer. Any new boat today pulls well and creates at least 'above average' wakes which in the real life based on the conditions on the water create more or less similar wakeboarding environment. Not every new boat - it appears - offers something more on top of tower, speakers and kick ass engine.

And that's why I spent 55k with Malibu folks.
