Well, the wake is pretty nice. To be honest, I've never ridden behind an SAN or X-star. I'd say that the unweighted wake is bigger than a Wakesetter unweighted, but to get a worthwile wake, you definatley need to weight it. Unfortunatley, this model doesn't come with factory balast and because they dont make them anymore, I was hard pressed to even find one, nevermind get the right options. I will be adding dry weight soon though.
As for the depth finder, there is anther module that just says depth on it, what would that be?
