Hi folks,

I put a deposit on a Falcon at the boat show but now I'm thinking of spending the extra 10K and getting a VTX, has anyone found any reviews of the falcon?

I have the Falcon you will not be dissapointed go test drive it then make your decision.

I would agree go for a ride in the end there is only 1 review that makes any difference....YOURS

If you want to see a review the Falcon will be featured in Boating World Magazine.
It will be on the Cover of the June Issue of Boating World.

Thanks! I'll check the links, the only problem is test drives a tough where I live so I'm buying blind.

Chris, any problems with your Falcon? are you happy with the construction?
Old    falcon_v            03-29-2008, 9:45 AM Reply   
no problems. This boats quailty is awsome. I am super happy with the construction very solid ride. I live in oklahoma and the wind sucks here I took it out on tuesday in 25mph winds and it rode great on the rough water. If you go with this boat the bennett adjustabl trim tab is a must. The wake is really nice and the surf wake is also realy big just with stock ballast. Centurion has a real winner here. Also take the reviews on waterskimag with a grain of salt that was before the tweaked the boat and got it just right there have been a lot of changes. If you want to talk to me on the phone email me and I will email you back with my phone number. By the way I am not a dealer I am just a Disabled Vetran who is board and waiting on the weather to warm up. emails in the profile

went and looked at the Falcon again today and asked for an time extension on my deposit.

evolution tower, dock lights, swim lights, retractable pylon, bimini, stainless package PP and it still prices out way better that the VTX

good points! The malibu is a bit more flashy but they all look the same from the end of a rope, and I'm buying it for me not everyone that looks at it as I go by.

Sorry Matt, the 10K is about 5 summers worth of fuel!

Ron seriously that is a good boat. I didnt shell out all the money just so my homies and family could have bling. I stayed in my budget and its been perfect. What concerns have ya got?

Evo tower on the Falcon????? That will look sick! The Falcon is an incredible boat....The bu dealer at our boat show even walked over and was completely wow'd by it. Good luck with your decision, both would make killer boats, now it's up to you!

Matt Adams - Sick boat in your profile.

That would look good but I did not think the Evo was avalible on the Falcon?

Ron are you out west?
Old    Ron Zap (zapisor)      Join Date: Mar 2008       03-30-2008, 9:54 AM Reply   
West and North, Alberta Canada, The evo and Bimini is a $1700.00 upgrade.

Can anyone tell me the difference between the PP wakeboard pro and the digital pro?

We decided last night we are going with the falcon, it will be built by the 2nd week in May, I'll post it when we get it

Matt have you surfed behind your?




if so did you add a sak or 2?
Old    Kevin R Baugh (krbaugh)      Join Date: Mar 2002       03-30-2008, 10:05 AM Reply   
The digital pro has all the stuff for Slalom tournaments. I would not think you would want that unless you are a tournament slalom skier

http://www.perfectpass.com/pp_wakeboardpro.html

They don't show the digital pro on there web site anymore. THey have a new product called StarGazer
http://www.perfectpass.com/pp_star_gazer.html
It is the same as digital pro plus they have added Gps input

Nice boat Kevin

Ron I have two 400lbs. fatsacs for the rear and the wake can be intimidating (lack of experience on our part i believe).

As for surfing, yes Ive tried it and it is fun but this year is my goal to really get everything dialed in with weight distribution and the right board for me and my boat. The salesman who sold me my boat promised to get out with me for an afternoon out on the lake with everything needed to show me how its all done. My boat comes out on the 1rst and Im chompin at the bit. Congrats on the new boat!!! I know that feeling that it cant get here fast enough.

Evo tower would look awesome!! what colors are you going with?

Thanks Ron

They don't call them the marriage saver for nothing.
Now if there where just an automatic backup the trailer option
A lot more people would still be married

A stealth graphic and an evo tower on a Falcon. Those are nice options for that boat. I'll be anxious to see those pics.

Matt - Thanks man. She's awesome. My little guy who is almost 2 is the one who has no fear. This summer should be interesting.

Thanks Nate!

Great for you Matt, get it out on the water

Yeah, I added the Bennet TT at the last minute just because we still like to go for the occasional ski.

When we sent in the order today and got the confirmation from Centurion they told us they have yet to build a falcon as custom as this.

Oh yeah, I switched to the tribal graphic just so I could be like Matt and Kevin
Old    Kevin R Baugh (krbaugh)      Join Date: Mar 2002       04-01-2008, 3:00 PM Reply   
Oh you are going to be glad your ordered the bennet trim tab!

Your the man I had no idea that you could even order the Tribal graphics and the Evolution tower on the Falcon

Can't wait to see it!
Old    Ron Zap (zapisor)      Join Date: Mar 2008       04-01-2008, 3:10 PM Reply   
The only things I could not get that I wanted was the retractable ski pylon, and they are going to try the pop up bow light.

Pictures will be posted as soon as I get the boat. It is going to be a long wait!

Kevin did you put the T Tabs on yours?
Old    Kevin R Baugh (krbaugh)      Join Date: Mar 2002       04-01-2008, 3:14 PM Reply   
Yes I have the trim tab on my 216/220
