    Ultra 300, How new compared to 250x ?

    I own à 250x, How much better is the 300x?
    I understand it has much more power but is the
    Hull new? I think the 250x is very wet, is the 300x better?
    Is it worth a buy?

    Thanks

    I disagree I wish they would of left the hull alone and just added the new power plant. I'm not a fan of the way the 300 handles over the 250-260 it's night and day

    Lol nijack

    Rice the ski is very twitchy and I have had the ski do some very scary things riding it aggressively like the ass end trying to swap with the nose at full speed and so on. This has happened to Many others I ride with as well. I wish someone can pin point what makes the ski do what it does or why it handles the way it does. Not even Kawi can provide that answer. The ski def has more hook up then the 250-260 but is a provides a very un confident ride compared to the 250-260. It seems people however that rode doos and yamahas don't mind it as those skis have the same characteristics but for me. Personally I don't like it.

    My theory is a good turning ski is't as stable. Being as the new ski turns so good, it lost some stability. Add to that the extra hp and torque when you are hooking and unhooking in the chop/cross chop it is twitchier.
