  1. I couldn't Agree more the supercharged motor in a 23 B52 is the only way to go! Love mine...Spool and Whine on!
  2. I have heard the F22 has as good a wave as the B52 23 the shape is just a tad different. I haven't surfed the new F22 but the pictures look so close its hard to tell. I would have gone with the F22 if the bow bags where below the floor.
  3. I would go for the Alpha 25 footer if the stern and bow are not as low in the water as the Alpha 23 I would do the 575 again for sure no questions asked Love my JL 6 pack of towers now but I need to add second subwoofer and would have to think about switching over to a 6 pack of wetsounds My previous MB had the metallic gelcoat almost everywhere with color accents and it holds up better than solid colors and looks awesome, so I would go back to a lot of metallic color scheme. I agree Boatmate triple axel trailer (electric disc brakes) - current is metal craft 3 axel electr
  4. I had a 2014 F22, now I have a B52 Alpha with the 575 motor(love it). I almost went with the F22 Alpha. Never gave the Classic a thought so I didn't ask if the running surface was the same. I felt it looks to much like the older boats and thus wouldn't hold its value long term as well as the Alpha(my opinion). I think the Alpha for the walkthrough is much better (in my opinion the classic walk thru look like an after thought), the rear facing seats are awesome for lounging and it has more ballast. I do like the interior design a little better on the classic, but both are not as good as my olde
  5. Does anyone know the Tsunami pump model on the 2021 B-52 Alpha's? Sorry my boats in storage and I forgot to look at the Tsunami pump model number. My wire seems to have shot and I want to order a couple new cartridges so I have a spare.
  6. I do the same as @Hyperryd with my Alpha, added lead across from driver.
  7. https://www.leadwake.com/ I have a 2021 Alpha B52 575 motor, for leadwake bags, I have 150 up front 100LB each side mid ship, 50lb each side rear with everything loaded. 0-10% center tab, 11- 11.2 MPH Surfs great without people moving. Wave is good with 3-10 people.
  8. I love both of my SoulCraft boards honu and secret weapon, in addition the custom sailor jerry style artwork work turned out awesome. I have a Mono Space monkey and its a fun board. I surfed the Mono Rasta, but I personally liked the Space monkey better its more responsive.
  9. Hey maybe someone could design some quick connect triangles. Wish I had some fab skills.
  10. As long time Utah boater I would agree with everything posted above.
  11. I can't imagine they would even sell the 25 without the 575. At elevation the 575 in the 23 is the ticket for sure, wouldn't go back.
  12. This is the prop I ran on my F22 2104 with 1100# pnp bags in each rear locker and a #500 bag in the nose. I was running at 4000ft elevation. OJ WakePro V3 985 4 Blade 15" x 12.5"
  13. This is what I surfed on my 2014 F22 with slappers: an additional 1000# bags in each rear locker and about 500# bag in the bow. fill all bags and built in ballast tanks. Drain non surf side Ballast tank to clean up wave and list the boat to the surf side. Prop may need to be adjusted per your elevation to get to surf speeds. I found that out back in 2014 when I purchased my boat. I brought an extra 800# of ballast bags for the surf side to get a good wave during the dealer demo. The boats shack thought then wave worked stock but with an extra 800# on the surf side we found out how good t
  14. The F22 need more weight because the hull is deeper than most older V Drives in fact it was deeper than most any wakeboard boat in 2014. That why I bought it back then. Also the hard tanks run froward in the boat so not all the weight is in the back cover. Are you filling one tank 100% and the other about 50% so the boat is lists? Check out the wake cookbook everyone uses plug and play or some kind of extra weight. vhttps://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1LkvTTvD6zbI8gORCEsvKuEI2D4IdqTGZDSoiFgVdGn4/edit#gid=0
