    2000-2001 Yamaha gp1200. Most fun and reliable ski I've owned was the 97 gp1200. Maybe my Ultra would take over if I could get it running right!!

    My personal reasons for picking a ski in those years is because the two strokes are easier to work on and they are smaller. I had a 2002 GP1200, for example, and the boat was so much bigger because of the CAT. The new ones are huge also! Plus, with a few mods, those GP's will move!! Just my two cents.

    I have a 99 ultra 150 & it's needed zero work in the 3yrs I have owned it, has 125-130hrs on the clock. I purchased it from a friend who put 60hrs on the ski & also had zero issues.

    I just hope the go-fast stuff I have will not hurt reliability.......

    Reliability? hands down 05 to current stx 15f or 04 to current 12f, the 15 will run 65 all day and it handles like its on rails, i have heard of them reaching well over 400 hours without any drama...
