    2005 FX Cruiser HO Opinnions

    My wife needs a ride of her own. We found a 2005 FX Cruiser HO that we will be looking at tonight and I wanted some info on it before we get there. What are some pro's and con's with the FX HO model. Thanks for your input.

    My buddy has an '06 HO and it's a very nice ski. IMO pro's are fuel mileage and longevity. Not going to be the fastest on the water, though.

    I have a '07 FXHO and I love it. Like Craig said...not the fastest,,but runs forever and cheap on gas.
    There are several guys and different threads on the forum about the FXHO models...

    Thanks for your advice everyone. This was one of those no brainers, as soon as the seller opened the garage door we knew this was well taken care of. Not a scratch on the hull and the engine compartment is clean as a whistle. Took it for short spin and knew right away this was perfect for my wife (birthday present). Stable and smooth with just enough speed so she wont kill herself. Has 70 hrs on it and we paid 4500.00 for it.

    I have a 2008 FX HO, this is the first yeat on Nano X hull and the last year of the MR-1 engine, my top speed GPS is 61mph, the ski goes forever on a tank of gas and you can really tell there's reduced weight in the hull. If you can find a good used 2008 model, snatch it up!
