    I can hardly wait !!!

    I can hardly wait to see what Hydrotoys thinks of his Ultra 250X when he gets it tomorrow. We can finally look forward to an honest performance evaluation from someone in the know!! It'll probably take more than one weekend to break the ski in enough to get the best speeds, but handling and every other aspect will be known.

    I'm Bailing out !!
    "I finally came to my senses. Why did I ever consider buying a new Ultra is beyond comprehension. Maybe because I believed what I heard from Kawi that it would be the fastest, quickest stock ski to date with NO exception. Seems like I got a line of BS. As it stands, my stock engined Ultra150 is faster than this new gas eater. I don't need a "boat", if I did I would not have sold my 130mph STV drag boat. I never ride with a passenger. If I did, I could use one of my other 3 passenger skis. I no longer use my skis in the ocean (salt water). I ride mostly narrow winding rivers with sharp turns and mostly calm water. After finally seeing what the new hull looks like last week, I left unimpressed. Workmanship is sub par, panel fitment sucks, the color blue used also sucks. Tomorrow I'll make some phone calls to get my 2 deposits back. If it took Kawi 4 years to come out with this ski, not much can be said for their engineering !!

    Vic, i think a lot of us are "just wondering". I could give a rats ass about buying an ultra but i would really like to know how it performs so i can find out how far behind me they'll be this summer.

    In Fact.......

    I have a feeling that the big bad Kawa Ninja is going to do a clean
    sweep of the competition......just give us a little chop, some nice octane,
    a little more cool breathing air and look out.........!!!

    The best minds and talents in the PWC biz are burning the midnight oil as we speak to make this baby the best of the best......

    The "JetSki" has entered the building............

    If it's not as fast as my Ultra 150, I'm still not interested. I kept one of my 2 deposits in place just in case. The primary reason why I had decided not to get it wasn't mentioned in my post. It's personal and it's a biggie.

    Way2Fast and Ultra

    My Prediction - Way2Fast will be on an Ultra by March........
    He won't be able to take hearing all the riding stories, let alone
    seeing them zooming around his waterways!

    I think this JetSki is going to be a modder's dream, lots of things
    to do, so those with the knowledge will have a blast playing and tinkering
    with it!

    So Way2Fast is it Blue or Red now??? !!! See ya soon in Cocoa
    when my "ship" comes in.

    BTW CrazyA, send me your address, if I decide to get the red one
    I'll stop by and give you a ride........
