Shane, there are a bunch of us that rock the Tristars. Check out mine in my profile. Do a quick search of the boards and you will find quite a few threads that cover this question. John John@waterskis.com
I love my Tristar. Throws an awesome wake with 1500 lbs plus people. The surf wake is killer too. Yesterday I jammed 11 people in there, thats my record so far. The bow rides super low, but as long as you know how to drive you'll be fine.
