FZR vs. Kaw 260X in Surf and/or Heavy Chop
Of course, the Kaw guys are claiming the 260 leaves an FZR behind in the chop. What do you guys think?

I am no ski expert, but to me it is just physics.
If both skis do 70 mph top speed in the flat water (stock, both have similiar top speed). In heavy chop the 260X should win with same skill rider. The 260X hull keep the pump hookup better than all other skis but it pay a big price in top speed and fuel consumption.
Modified ski is a different story.

Stock for Stock the 260X with the rough water race.
Modifed well that one still has to be proven.

I ride with 2 FZ's alot, and we are pretty close in the mods we have, I pull them both slightly in the smooth, glass water, but anytime it gets any kind of rough I pull away pretty good..........., I dont know how long thats gonna last as they are just getting started on theirs , the only other thing I may have for them is to throwing the pulley kit back on.......

the ultras are king of the ruff water hands down heavier ski and a deeper hull.

The Ultra doesnt come unhooked. The FZ still handles very well but stock for stock it would hang, but slightly behind the Ultra in the chop.
