I started a similar thread about 2 years ago, referencing just pickleforks. Now they have been around a few years and I'm interested to see what everyone's thoughts are.

Here is the link to the original thread ....

It seems each manufacturer has approached the bow differently. Who has the best looking one? What are your thoughts?

1. Moomba's Mojo/Mondo

10. What happened to the traditional bow?!? I want that back!

I know I had to leave a couple boats out. I felt pretty confident that Centurion and Epic did not need to make the list. :p But there may have been a couple others left off as well. I was limited to 10.

My original vote was the Tige which I still think is one of the best looking boats on the water. However, this time I'm going to give my vote to the SA. Being a little bit of a homer but I've really grown to love that boats look!

The Supreme has that classic X star bow that I'm a sucker for. The 40th anniversary X star was the sexiest boats ever built.

Stay awesome!

Should've held off until after the January 2014 boat show but....

Mark you ever sat in the front of a Supreme? I wanted to like it but the way the cushions curved you just couldn't sit upright (facing backward) without sliding down into the middle.

The Moomba and G series both kinda look like the old starcraft tri-hull I grew up with, lol. Not sure how much I like those kinds of bows over regular, but I like function better than fashion so I wouldn't mind one of these wider bows!

I think the Tige bow is dead sexy as well as the 40th X.

Hate them all, equally. Got to have the classic bow.

I do prefer the look of the traditional bow, and it's what I bought, but solely off cost. I have the same running surface as the rz2, but it was 20k cheaper(for me in my deal) to buy the traditional bow. tradeoff is a loss of 400lbs of hidden nose weight that I wish I had.
one thing you can say about pickleforks are the ability for most to hide more weight/gear.

brand bias aside, I'd give it to either tige or the supra sa. worst has to go to mastercraft. that new x got hit with a fugly stick.

That Axis is something terrible.

I like the new MC Prostar.

The SA for sure. And not just because I am a SC fan, it really just looks the best. I crawled through a supreme at the boat and have to agree with berg, horrible execution of the bow. Least favorites are the MB and the new xstar

Berg I have never seen a Supreme in person. I would also agree with the RZ or SA.

But this is still the best looking wakeboat ever produced.

Agree with all, don't know why they went ugly on the new one.

I do like the look of the Mondo from over the Mojo.

Picklefork does provide a smidge more room, though (ha, looks great though Berg) .... Pic of the SA bow ....

You could almost split this into two separate questions.

Like it from the outside?

Like it from the inside?

Ex: I liked the Supreme until I climbed around and tried to sit up in front.

The xstar would definately grab more votes from the inside ... (providing you can ignore color)

Xstar by far has the best interior of the bow and tige the best exterior. The SA is the best overall combination of style and function

traditional first choice, Mojo/Mondo for non traditional
