The VLX stock ballast wake is sick. Just rode behind an 07 on some butter this morning and it does not dissapoint.

Ryan, are those taken from the teak?
Old    Ryan D (ogopogo)      Join Date: May 2005       07-31-2007, 12:26 PM Reply   
I have posted these before, NO, they are not from the swimplatform, they are from the back middle seat where the cupholders fold down. Buddy was sitting with his chest on the back rest and elbows on the vinyl.

Not photo shopped either.

Why would we put someone in the very back when the boat is loaded so heavily, I don't really like wasting gas getting out of the water, and it would be fairly stupid to have someone there while riding at 22mph or so????

I think I might have some more.

I'll go along with RYan D. We have an '06 and run a similar setup as him

Full quad - MLS, no wedge, 2 x FLY High Pros in the lockers and around 400-450 in lead up front. We had 6 or 7 people in the boat this weekend it that wake got even bigger, too bad the weekend warriors were out ... loved to have gotten a butter run with that thing.

I agree that every picture posted is a pretty sweet wake. Malibu rocks.

Hey duckguy, X-star or X-far like you have. Leave it to a MC guy to try to spread hate and discontent on a Malibu thread.

Hey Nu Bu nice boat, How do you like your Rubicons? I like thoose or the Wetsounds.
Old    Nu Bu (05mobiuslsv)      Join Date: Apr 2006       08-02-2007, 10:18 PM Reply   
Well I like them for what they do for me. They are not going to sound like wetsounds, won't be nearly as loud or carry as far. The Rubicons are probably really overpriced for what they are. They were dealer installed when I bought the boat, I don't think I would have paid the retail on these things.

IMO wake pictures are worthless, every wake has a signature feel to it. It may look big and have a soft lip or it may look small but have a perfect bootable ramp. Feel (according to your individual style) is far more important than big water, which may be soft and have poor transition.

VLX wake for me = bueno
X-star does not have 25K dollar better wake, although it is nice.

im gonna quote a friend of mine here on this one, "vlx, best out of the box wake there is" meaning from the factory to the water, stock ballest, bow ballest included and wedge this thing is a monster wake with a lip that says POW!!!! add 9 people in it, good lord its scary. but its all about your own style^^^^^^^^
