There are a couple of threads about the current 2011 TT. There is a lot if impressions on the boat/wake/pull, etc. However, we should look forward towards solutions.
Than said: "A lot of posters appear to be missing the one relevant observation that has come out of this, which is that *some* Mastercrafts seem to have *relatively* bad wakes under *some* conditions, but IT MIGHT BE FIXABLE."
From the many comments it seems that there are three suggested elements of variance in the 2011 Mastercrafts appearing at tournaments.
2) Flash update applied or not
The proper next steps is to document these two elements for a majority of 2011 TT's.
For those who ski behind a wonderfully performing 2011 TT - please find out the status of these three elements for that boat.
For those who skied behind or suggested/reported a sub-par performing 2011 TT at an event, please find out from the promo rep the status of these three elements. (Yes, you may have to do some work to contact the promo owner, and we hope they answer accurately as to the boat's state at the event in question...)
If there is a significant correlation between any one or more of these factors and the assessment of the boat's performance, then we have the answer to the mystery and most importantly a solution for all 2011 TT's.
