I've got a 98 - same hull. I recently added the manual-adjustable wakeplate. We run 1400 lbs of ballast, 350 on each side of the engine, and 600 to 700 in the bow walk-thru. No floor locker in this model.
The wake is really nice up to 75 to 80 feet back in the 23-24mph range. big and rampy. the wakeplate helped it firm up, shape up. My son and his pals do some huge inverts off this wake. Any trick they can throw, they can do with this wake. The other boat they go behind is a sacked out 03 SANTE, and yes, that wake is a little bigger and steeper. Hard to give you a comparison beyond that. Ride behind it and see what you think.
