    SHO or FZS for distance??

    I'm thinking about that new financing deal and need some help on which ski.

    I need a ski for rough water distance rides.

    How does the FZS compare to the SHO in rough water hookup? Is it a much wetter hull?

    any complaints about the FZS?
    Storage??

    Modding?

    Thanks

    If your buying the ski for Rough Water Distance rides i will go with the Sho is wayyy more comfortable than the FZ hulls due to the design. SHO is the way to go.

    I remember reading somewhere how great that FZ hull is for rough water.
    I have been using a SHO and never cared for the cruise control.
    I was thinking the storage would not be that big of a difference.

    Thanks

    The FX SHO is better in rough water then the FZ hull. Hands down.

    The SHO has a larger storage capacity. It is also noticeably more stable in bumpy water.

    I have never used my cruise control, but I use No Wake mode everytime I am out.

    The same mods are available for the FZ and SHO. Like the others have said, that same hull that makes the SHO more stable also makes it a few mph slower than a FZ.

    i would of gotten a KAWI300x if they wouldnt give so many problems with the supercharge belt and the S/C lock; but again it all depends on personal opinion i prefer YAMI all the way, For what your asking i will get the FX SHO hands down.

    What about the new H.O.? You said long distance rides, I'm just thinking about fueling back up between point A and point B.

    I agree if your looking for great Gas mileage H.O, if your looking for a little more POWER SHO
