I heard it was goning to be called the X20 or X22. I think MC is keeping a tight lid on it because they don't want the delay problem they had with the new X-star while ironing out the details

There's all types of rumors around.

My bet:
X-20, 20' Pickle Fork V-Drive. NOT replacing the X-2.

I can't imagine them replacing the X-2 any time soon. When I picked up my boat two weeks ago my dealer had at least 50 boats in the yard of which almost half were X-2's or 205's.

Do you remember that interview that Dave did with the CEO of MC a month ago. I believe he said the X-star was their best selling boat. I'd have to call BS on that one. The sales guy was saying they had sold around 5 X-stars this year vs 20 X-2's that were in the yard.

I don't think you just discontinue selling your best selling boat. Look at Malibu, they didn't throw away the old VLX. Tige made their 20V into the Switch.

I guess we'll see in August or September. That's when they start production on the 06's right?

Pat- when he said that the X-star was the best seller, he ment the X-2 hull. If you read on it says something about that. The 205 hull is still the best all around boat hull they have made. I hope they dont get rid of the 205/X-2 hull any time soon, but i am open to knowing as much as i can about the "X-20" or as i have heard it called the "baby X-star"

Cory, I believe he's talking about the new X-star

"WW: Out of all your boats, which one is your best seller and why?
JD: It's the X-Star purely based on units. I just think there is nothing else like it. It's a great boat, great size. 22 Feet is just about the right size. It holds a lot of people and is comfortable. That boat was built purely for the wakeboard wake. We didn't compromise anything on the wake. We gave up a little top end speed with it for other boats that size and that's only because we didn't want to interfere with the wake at all."

Hey Pat, im sorry your right. I guess i was reading what i wanted to see i guess.

Big ed- So what have you heard? Where did you hear that it would be out in 08?

The dealer I talked to said the x-2 was going to become a baby x-star pickle fork and all. I think he said it was going to come out in 07. The reason they sell way more x-2's verse x-stars is cost. How many people can afford a X-Star? I know I can't but I can afford an X-2.

I am in the market for a new local MC dealer just told me he received an email from the HQ that there are 4 boats, X1's destined for South Africa. They are doing away with the X2 and this replaces it. His words were, "its a baby x-star"....!!
He also gave me guesstimate on price and it seems close the the X2.

I work at a dealer and have heard VERY little about this boat. I have spoken with my boss and he has asked me not to say a whole lot on the subject. With all of the "rumors" and the "I heards" that will go around on this it is hard to find out what is real. The boat is a "project" that is being worked on. There is not a name for the boat, nor what it will replace if it replaces anything. The HOPEFULL complete boat will be for the 06 model year but they (MasterCraft) are not telling anyone for sure due to the delays that the X-Star and the 245/X-45 had to go through. The best way to haddle this is to wait. An 06 boat would mean that the release would be in July. If there are delays for any reason the boat will not be released. I can't wait to find out what is REALLY going on with the boat but there is no way to find out for sure untill it is in a dealers hands. If the boat is ready when MC hopes pictures will start showing up in like June. And if someone is really in need of info hang out on Telico Lake where the MC factory is, if the Rumors are true that this boat is coming then it would be out there being tested!

I heard that Ryan (x-star 05) got one. We should ask him.

Barefooter4Life, if you wanted to refer to yourself, the appropriate way would have been to say “I AM A JOKE”

You are right...I have certainly earned that label on this website.

Maybe I should rephrase that. The only word you should be referring too that starts with a “j” is jealous

That's it This kid is getting on my last nerve. is there anyway to get him kicked off this site. you know like what happened to umali and i believe rene. This has got to stop he's hijacking every thread. okay maybe a bit of an esageration but seriously he needs to go.

And sorry for posting my concerns on this thread but i believe it's already been hijacked.

It's amazing to see adults so jealous of a 19 year old with a wealthy family.

Ryan i'm sorry, i know you were provoked but man you are everywhere on this discussion board.

It’s all good Matt... When I get my boat, and post pictures I will apologize to everyone I upset. Just trying to lay low for now, unless I get provoked…
Old    grud8            05-02-2005, 10:36 PM Reply   
Explain to me how I am jealous? The boat I picked up on Friday is more boat than what you "have coming." And I paid for cash...myself.

And since your next question is probably going to be about pics, I will get some up as soon as I have my tower speakers on in a couple weeks. Unlike you I can be patient with these things

How did this turn into a bashing on a kid who is lucky enough to have an X-Star? Just asking.
Old    jlm            05-03-2005, 7:08 AM Reply   
he doesn't have an x-star...but I thought he might know about the X-1. Apparently not. sorry
Old    wakefunx2            05-03-2005, 8:49 AM Reply   
HAHAHA, Why would Matt be jealous? That all white X-star is one of the best i have seen all year!!! Nice to see some one making a statement with an all white boat that looks better than some boat with 5 diffrent colors on it. Now with that being said, let me wipe my nose and ask Matt, hey when do i get a pull behind that thing anyway?!?!?!?!?!
Old    Joe (joe_788)      Join Date: Aug 2003       05-03-2005, 10:42 AM Reply   
Frankly, I'd much rather have Matt's all white X Star, or my all red X2 than the Barb Wire X Star anyways. I saw Matt's profile before I even posted.

And as to why he (or anybody) would be jealous? Well, Ryan didn't have to pay for his boat, and I'm assuming everybody else here did/is.

I'm just as jealous as the next guy. The difference is, I am happy for Ryan, not bitter.

I was at the factory about 2 months ago and I saw the mold for the new X-2. It has the pickle fork front end and a lot wider. The guys told me it throws a great wake similar to the X-Star but a little smaller and a little more narrow.

ok so Tyler let me get this right. They are changing the X2 to a pickle fork. Are they going to keep the 205V hull for completely discard it?
Old    Jason Pribyl (skibum69)      Join Date: Aug 2004       05-04-2005, 6:09 AM Reply   
From what I have heard from on of the engineers from the factory they are not replacing the X-2/205V, but adding another boat that is a pickle fork bow (I am assuming this because he would acknowledge or deny it). I wouldn't be suprised if the X2 becames more like the Malibu Vride series, which would be great because they would get even cheaper!

I am not sure "even cheaper" is the right term...
Old    Jason Pribyl (skibum69)      Join Date: Aug 2004       05-04-2005, 7:01 AM Reply   
you're probably right, it will stay the same price and all the other ones will go up in price.
Old    bambamski            05-04-2005, 8:14 AM Reply   
I think it would be a mistake for them to cheap out and put a bunch of crap on the x-2 like they did for the V-ride.
Old    thomybaer            06-09-2005, 2:27 AM Reply   
the new x2 2006 is a baby xstar. will be build around august.
