    Considering a Waveblaster 2

    I've been wanting to pick up a waveblaster as a second ski for some time now.
    I came across this ad for a waveblaster 2. Now granted its the two seater and I think I'd prefer the one seater (but I've never ridden either so I'm just guessing here).

    Do you think this represents a good deal? Seems like its in decent condition and has the trailer. He posted it as obo, so I may even to bargin a bit.

    So basically I'm looking to see

    1) is the Waveblaster 2 a good ski in general

    2) does this look to be a good price for a WB2 in decent condition?

    thanks for the input.

    I don't know much about wave blaster 2 but they are a little moor stable to ride then 1 . The hull fixing would make me Leary.Sound like a good price to me if the motor isn't about to blow up. It looks pretty cool too. Maybe take someone with you to look at it thats had one. You might be able to find a junk hull later for a few dollars if that one starts coming apart.

    I'll definately need more info about the repaired damage before making the decision. Unfortunately, I don't know any blaster experts that I could bring along.

    I think you should hold off until you find the one seater that you really want.

    LOL - I was just saying I dont like the way they look in general. From what I've read just doesnt seem to be a ski I would like. I cant really give you anything but that, sorry.... I guess it really depends on what you like as far as looks and power. I prefer bigger in both myself. Goodluck!

    I might be a little late on this but I'll give my opinion anyway. I just recently rode one for the first time after repairing it. The ski looks pretty cool. It is pretty stable with one person on it, maybe a little tippy with two. It handles the chop pretty good and corners unbelievably well. Low end torque is good but a top speed of only about 45-48 mph. Not what you'd expect from a 760. And with the corner carving hull design I really don't think it would do much better. It feels alot heavier than it looks and at low speeds it actually rides bow low in the water. The water was actually coming up a ways over the nose. Donuts....forget it. Wake jumping....forget it. It's very hard to get this thing out of the water. Most 3 seaters I've ridden would do better! I would only suggest this machine if you like just cruising around and pulling some Gs in the corners.
