    FZR or FX SHO?

    I am trying to decide on which route to go when i get a new ski, i plan on a few mods here and there but i'm wondering as i move more towards performance which ski would be a better option and what are advantages and disadvantages between these 2 platforms?

    Both great skis. Same engine and topdeck but the hull on the fz seems to handle a little more sharply and they react to mods very well. From our testing the fz is good for an extra 2-3mph top speed after mods. FX hull definately hooks up better in the rough.

    Solo riding and i am pretty much equal lake and river riding and offshore just depends on my mood.

    This ski will be mostly for solo riding if i want to do the family thing pulling tubes and skis and such and riding with the wife or kids i already have the Honda for that and i'm not getting rid of my Honda.

    I have already been thinking about the offshore verses lake/river riding and if i was to get real serious into offshore riding then i would probably go with a Kawi.

    Sounds like the FZ will be a little better for ya Roy, especially if you want to mod it out a little. The FZ seems a couple mph's faster than the FX in calm water, while the FX will probably shine offshore a little more. Not to mention, I haven't ridden one yet & would love to take it for a spin. Either hull should be a lot more predictable in turns than what you have now...they won't spin out from under you in the twisties like that Honda did.
