I have a buddy considering one , anyone know how this boat performs. I am assuming it must be somewhat good if Jamie and Chris skied behind them .

    Is that the slalom boat? I have heard it is OK but would not take it over the big 3

    Skied behind Chris'. While I'd like to say it was great, I cannot. Had a bump at 28. Ok maybe not a bump but stiff wakes. Woke me up in a big way going through the gates. It's big and roomy. Price seams fare. Didn't ski it long line but got better as line got shorter. Agree with @Horton unless it's just stupid cheap compared to the big 3.

    I had a thread here earlier this year asking about the 20 I, which I think is pretty much the same. Researching them seemed they had hard wakes and were one of the heaviest inboard ski boats. I think Tiges are well built boats though.

    Doesn't it have a little bit higher sidewalls? That would be good for someone who also takes their boat out to bigger lakes such as Lake Powell. Wouldn't it handle rought water better?

    @Garn sidewalls are very high. Strangely so. Felt weird. I would assume u would get used to it and feel like your gonna fall out o other boats. Overall the boat was nice. Just had a stiff wake. Was told I'd get used to it after a couple passes and I did. Reminded me of the wakes behind a Sanger I used to ski. Small but hard. Like hitting a small curb....twice.
