ridden behind all but the Rz4....
Immediately when I saw the title of your thread I thought of the supra 24ssv. big boat, solid in chop, and a GREAT wake. Really great compared to the rest of the 24 footers ( malibu 247 and x-45) imo. Rode it in a comp, heavily weighted but all hidden, no sacks on the floor or in the bow. It was great. Never driven it though so cant comment on that. the interior set up with rear facing seats is a plus too.
The only thing is I know nothing about the surf wave and cant remember hearing anything about them when guys comment on great surf waves.
Malibu. ridden behind it with full ballast 1250, wedge, and another 1000 lbs. its a great shape, but it needed another 2-3000 lbs to make it great, i think. It rides chop EXCELLENT, drives "malibu" nice, especially for such a big boat. The interior is huge, standard wrap around seating. Surf wave with 1100's in the locker and another 400 sack on the seat and 4 people was really nice. Iam regular foot and rode the goofy side backside and switch stance, had nice long pocket, not a surfer, so dont take my word. owner rides regular and it looked great from the boat. owner complained about the carpeted interior wishing he had snap in. said he has to shampoo it yearly to get the mold smell out. I know malibu offers a carpet floor runner, highly recommend that.
x45. wakeboarding wake was wide and steep. rode with 3 people and stock ballast and it was small and wide. it was also really weight sensitive, which surprised me for how little weight we were running. I did not like it at all, and from videos and pics of the pros sponsored by mastercraft and not really seeing them ride the x45, I think I am in the majority. surf wave was really nice with just stock ballast and 3 people on regular side. I pulled the owner on the goofy side, did not ride it. not real big but a great shape, imagine it is nice with more weight. it handled sluggishly, even more so than the xstar. big and solid, handled the chop very well. snap out carpet was nice. interior nice, standard wrap around seating. huge bow, cabin "felt" smaller than the malibu and probably was because malibu is another 7" or so and has a smaller bow.
tige- had a old 2200v but never ridden or surfed any other tige. Guys here on WW love tige surf waves, don't hear much about their wakes though. (cue the pic of the blue and white tige with comments from robert about how amazing the wave and wakes are !!
j/k robert, but seriously.
rankings in my opinion:
handling, turning, chop = malibu (did not drive supra)
interior comfort = malibu
interior size= malibu
interior design= supra
interior cleaning= mastercraft )snap in carpet)
piggy backing additional sacks= I believe all 4 have plug n play style systems ready to go
bang for buck= supra
forward exterior design that looks great in blue and white= tige
have fun, your in a great dilemma to have to pick between those 4
