Thread: 2013 Moomba Mojo Review
03-05-2013, 05:46 PM #91
End of 2012, I got talked into taking a set behind a Mojo. I'd spoken with the SC dealer up in Connecticut who skied on a Mojo all summer and loved it. He and his buds were big time slalom skiers in former lives and he told me they they had a blast skiing behind the Mojo, and found the wake to be especially sweet at 22 or 28 off. So I decided to give it a try.
When I finally saw it I literally laughed out loud thinking it must be a joke that such a large boat (looks especially huge on the trailer) could produce a respectable slalom wake. But I was way wrong. Zero ballast, Plate down, 15-off, 34mph, Acme 14" prop, and the wake was excellent! Every bit as good as our Outback direct drive. Maybe better. It wasn't that it was visibly "small", but it was so aerated that it was very soft and buttery and had very little launch or impact. We frickin' LOVED it and ordered one immediately. Arrives from factory in April. Can't wait!

Wow....I'm pleasantly surprised and hope that holds true for the new LSV as well. I was afraid I was going to have to beg for pulls from my buddy with a DD this summer. But than again, his gas always seems to 'work' better for slaloming.....So, I may stick to my original story!2013 Mobius LSV

I have seen a decent ski wake from a big ole tri hull boat. I think if you take a big hull and get it moving it can ride high enough out of the water that the wake is kind of small. Obviously, this is comparative and you have to have a little speed though. With today's hulls and lighter materials I'm not all that surprised though.My Mom said I'm not allowed to get wet!

So what you are saying is Moomba's 3900 lb 22.5ft Flagship Surf/Wake Boat produces an as good or better slalom wake than their premier Direct Drive 2800lb, 20.5 foot Slalom boat? I am kind of surprised more of the Otback fans aren't questioning this.........
If someone told me that the an Outback DD produced an as good or better Surf Wave and Wakeboad wake than a Mojo I would definitley have to question it.
