I'm a Malibu guy my ski buddy is a Nautique guy.
We both own a boat but are considering selling both of them and purchasing a boat together as we ski together 95% of the time.
We are both fussy boat keepers and have similar views on maintenance and care.
Looking at a very gently used 200 or TXI.
We both normally slalom at 15/22/28 off on a smaller lake with an annual families trip to a larger lake where more room and higher freeboard are an asset.
Assuming the wakes are similar I think the overall edge goes to the Malibu for roominess, versatility (wedge), higher freeboard, etc.
What do you ballers say...
