Already one of the standout core wake rides from our 2008 tests, the MB Sports F23 Tomcat was further fine-tuned for '09. MB Sports started by refining the Tomcat's CAD-designed hull, improving the consistency of its just-right wakes. In true West Coast form, they also relocated its underwater gear to clean up the wake at slow speeds, delivering a crisper wakesurf wake. Next, they replaced their ballast pumps with a fuss-free gate system that floods the sack-less under-floor ballast with 2,400 pounds of water faster than you can put on a board. The end result: A great wakeboard boat made even better.
