    FX SHO or Ultra 300x New to the site!!

    I am going to buy a new ski this week and I have narrowed it to two. I rode a stock 08 SHO yesterday. Thing is a beast. Smoked everything on the river. However I want to ride at my place at the beach also and i want the fastest stock ski I can buy. So......which one??

    Uh-oh...here we go again. They are both good skis. If you do mostly river riding, I'd go with the SHO. If you do mostly rough ocean, go with the 300X. They will be about the same top speed stock, although you're going to have some people saying the SHO is faster, and some saying the 300X is faster. The 300X is faster out of the hole and will get to speed quicker. Overall, I would go with the SHO for reliability, uses slightly less gas, and uses regular (300X requires premium). IMO, the SHO is a better all-around ski. The 300X is the better rough water ski.

    No it just gets old when new folks come on here and ask the same question the last new person just asked JACKASS.....do a little reading and searching and you will find this has been asked over and over, there are threads already going asking the same thing...it gets OLD.....so before you come on here calling people jackasses, why not look around and read a little bit and see what you learn........

    since i already have a 08 SHO, which is somewhat modded.
    i am getting the ULTRA FEVER.................
    between the two for normal rec. riding and the fun / reliability factor i would say get the 300X.
    the SHO is a fun boat, but the clutch issue makes it somewhat unreliable. whenever i get in some chop and i here the clutch/supercharger whining. i am thinking ok how long will it last until the sprag gives out.
    so far the 300X seems to be very reliable.
    when i do get the 300X i would also keep it MOSTLY STOCK.

    i know on the kawy side some members over there can be rough and heartless, but tommy means well and is helpful to others on and off the water.

    there are a few of us yammy guys who are getting the 300X.
    whydo you ask! having a modded fast smooth water ski and a reliable rough water ski is like a match made in heaven !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
