    Default Looking for a new TUG!

    Bit of a sad day for me today! Sold the Outback to a wonderful family who will put it to great use! That machine was a wonderful ride for us for the 3 years we owned it!

    Now on to another TUG. Question now is what do I want this time?

    We are in the middle of purchasing a lot on a ski lake in a 5 lake skl community. Want a slalom machine with no tower as it won't fit into the boat house that already exists on the property.

    Don't believe our next boat will be a Moomba as I sit here speaking now but one never knows????

    Will start the hunt and hope we can find something within a reasonable distance of our new upcoming home just south of Houston!

    I will gladly stay a contributing guy here if nobody objects that I might have a different ride after we move??????

    Why not order an Outback without a tower?

    Based on your posts, I think you would like a Carbon Pro, CC200, or a 197 with ZO. If you compete, you really should be on a boat that will pull you in tournies.

    After you look around, you may find the Outback to be just right (for your wallet). Towers fold down. It's a pain, but still faster and easier than trailering.

    Had a 99 outback, now have a 2009 supra 21v. Its the #$^%&& for slalom and barefoot so Im casually looking for a older bu response, sanger or maybe even a little flightcraft to add to the stable. The 21v is awesome but puts out a massive wake even at 42 mph

    If I had the money - my next boat would be a Nautique 200. Nothing against Moomba - just wake characeristics. But since I will probably never have that kind of money - it would probably be a used Outback DD.
    If you believe something to be true, it will be - in it's consequences.

    Concur with Benson...Nautique 200 is the current standout for pure slalom wakes. I havent skied behind the Carbon Pro from Centurion but have heard it is very good as well. However, I wouldnt trade my Outback (no tower btw) for either of these boats. Dont think the difference in wake performance is worth cost delta. The Outback has a great wake and the boat is reliable with plenty of space for the family. I dont consider myself a great short line skier but have had looks at the course as deep as 28 off and I think the Outback stacks up against the 197, Response, and previous Nautique wakes pretty well. In the end dont think you could go wrong with Outback, 197, Bu Response, or Nautique 200...Comes down to which one you like the best. For me its the Outback hands down...

    That is a good ways south! Well welcome to Texas, be sure to head on over to Brazos Bend State Park for a day and check out some awesome wildlife. It's not to far from you.
