    Is the '00-'01 GPR a Better Made Ski?

    I keep hearing about the '03 and later skis having more problems with pump tunnel failures, grates ripping out of the hull, etc. I've owned two 2000 GPRs and have never experienced these issues. What changed with the '03s?

    00-02 ski's have more SMC and weigh more than the thinner 03-08 hulls.

    my 2 pennies.

    The 00-01 gprs were the toughest for sure... However they still need pump tunnel reinforcement and updated inserts. Throw enough power at a abrams tank and it will fall apart as well.
