    Jake ohh ok yea they move a lot of Axis boats, they have come a long way in the creature comforts in the last few years. Axis is owned by Malibu so thats why the styling cue is so simular.

    As for the fumes i bet a FAE would stop a lot of that surfing but yea boarding and idle would smell a bit like a diesel. but for me a morning isnt a morning without a coffee and a diesel exhaust smell LOL.

    Yes i agree for skiing you would be better off with a gas V8 but if they kept a multispeed trans in there it would be double.

    Most modern diesels have a good torque from 1500 to 2200-2500 but max HP at 3500rpm.

    I know on Claudia's Passat it pulls hard from idle to 2K, spins the tires really easy with an automatic but i have to be honest on the highway at 65 or 70 if you stomp it to pass you better have room because its way out of its power band and feels rather slow. I think if she had the 6speed manual it would be way nicer but thats hard to get unless you custom order the car.

    My truck pulls hard to 100+mph but thats due to the tunner running my trans gears.

    Diesels have there place and id love to see a boat maker impliment one to a wake board boat. I have seen a few in the jet powered river boats but they were closed cooling systems as well for salt water use.

    The Epic that was at the TX Jam was owned by a friend of ours - Fred. He was also at the pavilion during dinner & raffle sitting by Brian & Drew I believe.

    I'm not the biggest fan of the look of the boat but I hear the wake is pretty solid.

    The one i saw at the Texas Jam is the first i saw in person, i didnt get a chance to see it in action, or look to closely at it, the people who brought it < i think a dealer > just didnt seem to interested in pushing the brand as much as enjoying the party.
    The person who brought it is Fred White. He is the president of our Gulf Coast Wakeboarding Association and is not a dealer. Just his own personal boat and he came to enjoy the party.

    This.

    But as mentioned I've heard the wakeboard wake is phenomenal.

    I know Fred's has about 4000 lbs of stock ballast and can fill in about 1 minute I believe.

    I think they also offer seadek flooring through out and neoprene seats instead of vinyl.

    But like others have said, front end is still ugly
