The Miami Fall Record this past weekend had fantastic conditions and the SN 200 for all three rounds. Pro Ski Coach's Chris Rossi ran 39 all three rounds scoring .5 .5 and 2.5 at 10.25.
10.75 at the 5 ball:
You can see all the shots I took here.
some folks are catching major air coming through the gates! what's up with that...stiff knees?
I have now skied 5 sets behind the 200. 2 practice sets behind Jeff Smith's small block and 3 tournament sets behind the one in the photo which has the big block. IMO, the 28 wake has more of a bump than the 196 (at 55k). At 32 off it's about equal (as in great) and from 35 and in it is better (it is very flat with no curl or dip like the 196 has). The 22 bump (as seen in some of the air shots you looked at) is still a significant bump, but I didn't ski that loop so cannot compare with the 196.
There is nothing unskiable about the wakes, they just aren't totally flat as you might have thought from all the hype preceding the release of the boat.

Good to know. Would be even better to know if I had the cash to throw down for a 200! Nevertheless, your personal experience will be helpful to others who are in the market, I'm sure. Thanks.
