BoatTest.com Review: Tige R20

Post by BoatTest.com

With the R20, Tige has created a cost effective boat with the same performance hull of the high end boats in the lineup. It still allows for the capability to dial in the perfect sized wake in a high performance boat that can hold her own right alongside the best of the best. She also solves the problem for those that need a smaller boat due to tow vehicle capacities or lake size limit restrictions. She measures in at 20’ (6.1 m) and has an empty weight just over 3,000 lbs. (1,361 kg)

Boating World ASR Review

Words by Boating World

When Tigé set out to build the ultimate wakesports boat, the words “bigger, better, baddest” probably dominated conversations during the two-year R&D phase of its new ASR (Apex Series Rider’s Edition). While the engineers and designers did their thing, pro riders gave their input to help make it real-world ready. The result is a boat that not only gives surfers the mountain of water they want but also gives wakeboarders the ultimate launch pad.

In 1991, our founder and CEO, Charlie Pigeon, decided that he was going to create a high performance boat company that would put the customers experience first. Tige was founded in Merced, California based on one visionary idea: The Convex V Hull.

Wakeboarding Tips: Weighting Your Boat

Post by Greg Young with Northwest Riders (Evo Blog)

Weighting your boat is a whole other beast that could easily have a 30 page manual written about it. On a basic level, just be sure that your wake is even from side to side. You don’t want one side to be clean and the other washed out. If that’s the case, have one of your passengers move to the side that’s washed out until the two sides are even.

Tige Ballast System Review with WakeMAKERS

Spencer at WakeMAKERS.com

The engineers at Tige have never been afraid to innovate on the highest level. For 2013 there have been some major improvements to the design and implantation of the factory ballast system. The goal for Tige was to increase speed to reduce the time it takes to fill and drain your ballast tanks. Basically they know your time is worth something and when you are on the boat you do not need to be waiting any longer than you need to. They have blown way past that goal with the incredibly fast 2013 system.

Your Dream Boat in a Wrap

A few months ago Wet Sounds, our audio manufacturer, wanted us to create a fully personalized Z3 to use as their demo boat. From the upholstery to the captain’s chair to the old school rims to having all chrome painted flat black, everything is completely unique to fit the “rat rod” theme Wet Sounds dreamed of. They wrapped up their customization options with a Sirlin Wrap and it looked sick!
