Recommended Posts

Has anyone every surfed behind a Tige rzx3?  I hear the wave is pretty good and as good as the Ri237.

I have and I was really impressed. I actually couldn't believe how big the wave was once I was on it. We had it set up to be very steep and it reminded me a little of the G23 wave with a bit of a 'step' in it. It was super fun, but I still prefer the Ri wave and aesthetics.

RZX3 is a very nice wave when you have all the factory options and add 500lbs of lead (Z3 is a much "tippier" boat when people start moving around, while the RZX series feels really stable like my Centurion). I would say with all those ballast options it rivals the suckgate wave on my SV244 tho I still prefer my wave and have not found another wave in a new boat that would convince me to drop the required extra coin to upgrade. Very nice boats....I just dislike the Raptor engines, they are a lot louder even with FAE and seem to have a lot more issues like with the O2 sensors, etc.

If I did go new, based on boat/wave/options it would be Centurion FI23/FI25, or Supra SL (also a great wave with factory ballast of 3500lb + 500lb lead).....I really like how Supra has the power tower and the redundant backup switches, but Supra also has the Raptor and I have too much doubt in those engines still, so it would be Centurion all day for me.

Being on the Easy Coast, Centurion is still not considered a "top 3" brand....funny cause every time I take someone new on my boat (most have never been on a Centurion, some know nothing about them and have never even seen one tho I do see more of them on my lake each year)....their eyes always get big once they get on the wave and feel how far back the push goes. I have converted 4-5 people who after riding behind my boat, have traded in their boat for a new Centurion. In the 3 weeks I have been in my new home in this lake neighborhood, 2 people have ridden my wave and went and bought Centurions immediately, love it! I love being just off the water, my house is 1/8th mile from the community boat ramp (wasn't able to afford a lake lot to build on, but loving the short walk to the water and lots of neighbors with boats who love surfing).

Centurion has way more options such as cat fin and setting rider profiles.  Things like power tower nice fit and finish make tige’ one of my favorite boats.  Dealership is too far away from where I surf and have my Lakehouse, and I’ve learned that service is key.  Tige 23’ is #1 boat for money in my opinion (centurion was there, but my boat has spent 40% if it’s life in the shop). Tige, master craft, nautique, and centurion throw a mean wave.  Supra throws a weird wave (a “J” wave).  Best wave I’ve surfed is a master craft with 350 lead in the corner.  Centurion and tige without lead are a close second

      Sad this forum is not as busy as it used to be since so many jumped to the Facebook groups .. the FB groups are not nearly as easy to search, and the threads do not get organized well ...
