Are these things worth anything for flatwater or pretty much a surf hull? What do they weigh, just curious and seeing ALOT of these out there now days but seems like straight surf?

You could chase wake boats all day long with either. Our sv1 is deffinatly more loose than the pro. Tony's layup is very strong and light. I have no idea what the weight is but they are both a little lighter than my predator. With enough motor and a big enough wake you can have a good time.

FREAKING LOVE THE SV-PRO. Like, HOLY $h!tB@llz!


I don't even know where to start...
super easy build and it was my first am hull and am hull build, received the hull on may 27, was on the water may 28th by noon, and all I forgot was to plug the trim through hull tube I completely forgot about lol.

Initial thoughts, grinning from ear to ear... even the foot holds fit me haha.

Foot holds fit really well and have a TON of adjustability

The pump now uses 8mm bolts, along with just about every other screw in this hull.

The rear was a bit too grabby when you tried to pull the front of the ski up or pop off a wake, So I used a 3" hole saw to make the initial cut, then tapered the edges out with a file. Lastly, I covered the inner radius with 5200 silicone to keep the turf bound to the rail and prevent peeling This gave the ski a MASSIVE rail to sink in and corner on and you could now REALLY feel it when you bank the ski over. You can carve buoys on the thing with ease! ( and get that pop out of it)

sadly the overall installation of the AGX Designs graphics wrap looks to be rushed and fitment is sub parr, probably installed dry. Almost made me want to re-order the graphics and install them myself to be honest. On the plus side, all of the Fiberglass work and fitment off engine/pump were at or above Rickter quality, fit and finish

Padded the tank so when the ski gets pancaked upside down from a large height the tank will not move.

This is where i'm really happy with @ridetrp's innovative design. Shis I believe is a thick 2-part silicone bead laid down the hood trench and then the hood is greased up in de-bonding agent and placed to get the 100% perfect water tight seal, It literally is like pulling a suction cup off to remove the hood!

Here brings me to my only real complaint about Tiger craft as a whole. I understand they are very busy building all the new orders and trying to dish them out as fast and accurate as they can, but my main complaint is the lack of communication with the customer during the process of building, maybe it's time to bring in a "front desk" that can keep in touch with questions of customers/orders. Me and 2 other buddies that had sv_pro's on order all had the same main complaint. Don't get me wrong, they are amazing products that do take time to perfect. but it was a 30% chance i'd ever even get a text or reply back from Tony during or after the build. I asked for a receipt and didn't get one, I then asked again after getting the hull and a week later still no reply. Just to register it I had to print off credit card statements to prove I paid for it... lastly, I wanted a longer ride plate and tried to ask him for how much it would cost to get one made and still... no reply. At this point i said "hell with it I'll build my own". I guess if you are looking to order a Tiger craft just place your order and forget you ever did until it shows up at the door step. Regardless of the communication issues, the hull turned out so damn well i'd still do it again.

First of all, these guys do actually rave about their tigercraft this much in person also. Almost thought they were selling the damn things. They should get a rebate for how much the talk 'em up, lol.

As riders they also rip as much as they say. Really makes getting one of these tempting. And I'm pretty sure John has talked me into some Shark Fins. :)

Anyway, Brian, where'd you get your exhaust LCD thermometer? Need, want, now, gimme gimme. :) Only finding the low-temp ones.

See you out at the surf!

@Brian.wells Whoa, you're using the yami couch tail-jet / superjet butt-pisser for one of your cooling lines? I was under the impression it was at a point where the pressure was too high on the pump to route for cooling. Does that go right into your exhaust mani? Had good luck with it so far?

I'm looking to setup dual cooling now that I'm throwin some mods on my superjet and was eyeing that water outlet on mine so i don't hafta drill and tap my pump. not that i have a prob with that, just thinkin it saves me pulling my pump.

@sdeburnie Yeah it's goofy, but i use the arse pisser to run as dual cooling simply because i didn't ever tap the pump. It runs into a dual tapped b pipe manifold like traditional dual, i don't think such a thing as too much pressure is a thing when the water coming out is still damn warm and my pipe is not overfed either
