Had a new to me 2016 phoenix 920 for about 2 weeks so far, and for the most part its lived up to the hype. My only complaint so far is that anytime I sit it down I have the feather it down or I will have water roll up all the way to my back. Never had this issue in my triton. I could go from WOT to stop in my triton and never had water come over the back. Do any of you guys in other brands experience this?

My Basscat Pantera will do that. I usually time it, and goose it a little to stay ahead of the water.

No you chop the throttle and when the wake catches up to you give it a little throttle...Learn how to drive.

I can make it happen on the Skeeter FX, but can easily avoid it also.

That Phoenix sits a lot lower in the water than a triton also.

Only does it in my Nitro if I have a second person in the boat.

I've owned 3 Skeeters, 95 ZX185C, 03 ZX250, and 05 Zx225... if I went from running down the lake to completely off the throttle all 3 boats would have water come over the back, not a tidal wave or enough to get to me in the drivers seat but a decent amount of water. I've always feathered it down.
