In '96 I think they used a 205DD with a pole for the Tour....was it white?

Then in '97, the blue one came out...still a DD with a pole.

Would love to see someone rockin' one of those!

I know that Gid(whazzup) that's on the board from time to time used to have one, but he has a VLX now I think. I remember his wake was siiiiiick.

While its not the X-Star my dad has a '98 Prostar 205DD with a pole. The thing has a sick wake. We ride at Havasu a bunch and people make fun of the extended pylon. Whereupon my friends and I ride and make fun of their lame skills. I always find riding status more impressive than boat status. Upload

Dude i had a 96 mastercraft 205 before I got an X2 and it was a sick boat. I had 1000 pounds of lead and four fat sacs in it and it would barely go but the wake was sick. I put over 1700 hours on that boat before I sold it to my girl friends brother. I still ride behind it once in a while. It has a great wake. Later, Mike

I also had a '99 Prostar 205DD. The ski wake was decent, but a bit of a hump...not like an early 90's 190, but you could charge course on it.

The wakeboarding wake was the balls for it's time...and still is if you have the 1/2 hour to fill 4 sacks.

The first X-Star was a 19' DD in 1997. The 2000 X-5 and Prostar 195 had the same hull with a small open bow scooped out.

Are you certain?

I'm pretty sure it was 205DD.

so why is it called wake-star, everytime i hear the star part of it i think of that movie with the chick from SNL, saying "I'm a star". i think wakesetter is the best name in the industry

It was definately a 205DD

I was under the impression that it was a 205DD in 1996 also. It came with a pylon and 1 fat sac. Yeah, it takes me at least a half hour to weight my 99' before riding. Gotta love it.

I saw one of the old blue X-stars in Mississippi. They were all kneeboarding on it.

The first X-star was a DD 205. I have a 2000 DD with the X-star tower and it rocks the wake. I ride in a river alot and it is very manueverable for double-ups in tight places. Again the wake is huge and sick.

The original X Star had the same hull as my X-1, correct?

Do you guys remember something called the X-sport, I think we had one at the shop I while ago, looked like the first wakeboard specific type of package.

Hi everyone, we have the original X-Star. 1997 was the first year they came out, and featured only in green. 1998 they produced it in green and blue. The things that made it "wakeboard edition" was a stereo, pole, and 550lb fat sac. It is direct drive, before the V-drive took over the market, but I weight it front and back (~2,000 lbs). It is the same thing as a ProStar 205 with special graphics. I ride the Delta every weekend, just keep an eye out for the OG Green X-Star flying dual pirate flags :-) (see profile and attached pics). The only other time I have seen another was in San Diego when they had the X-Games. By the way, I'm really happy a thread like this came up, yay! I can prolly find some more pix

upnorth- yes, i believe it is the same Upload

glad you aprprove :-) I do what I can, stay beautiful!!! I do the Fat Seat (1200 lbs) in the back) and then the double 350 lbs sacs (~700) up in the walkway. Plus 9 people, the wake is definitely ridiculous.

I knew I saw one in someones profile, who was from the delta. Pimp boat, a true classic at only 9 years old.

I remember drooling over one when they first cam out, but I had just bought my Malibu, so a new boat was atleast a few years off.

The good ol' days, when a 10 ft pole and a fat sack were big pimpin.

Yeah, one of the pix in the brochure when we got it, Parks was doing a raley with the sandal wrap bindings... hahaha. One time, just before the pickle-fork bow X-Star came out, someone asked if it was the new X-Star, that was funny

Jeff- I used to fill up coolers with water all over the boat before I got the sacs, super ghetto haha. (many many years ago, back when we had the pole)

Ryan- Yeah that's me, I 'religiously' launch out of there every weekend. And I definitely made an appearance at the Hangtime Open! Way rad you recognize the boat. I'll be out on Sunday! Maybe see you out there :-) ciao!

leo, i have ridden behind the boat you saw, if it was blue. a family in bay st louis bought it after darin shapiro put 800 hrs on it, back when he was sponsored by mc. it, unfortunately, sank a few years after they bought it.

i remember riding behind zane's 98, it was blue, back in spring of '99 at dave briscoe's school.

he had that wake dialed, probably one of the best wakes I have ridden to this day!
