F Z R F Z S Which one should I get --- and why do you say that ?
Open for opinions and any tech aspects of the Hull / Ride Plate / weight differences (if any) and riding characteristic differences between the two.
Only major diff. I see and read about is the seat and color choices.
A Yellow FZS with a re-covered Yellow FZR seat seems to be the ticket but....

Depends on how you ride if needing the 3rd seat and tow hook as found on the FZS and pretty much only main differences. If looking at the 2013 as stated in your signature, they have the boarding step as the older ones didn't.

3 seaters sell easier when your tired of it and want to update.
I've sold a lot of fzs skis quickly.
The 2 fzr's I had were bought by people that specifically wanted the fzr.
They ride the same...
Good luck in your purchase ....

They are exactly the same ski excepting the rear seat style, and boarding ladder missing on the older FZR.
HOWEVER, in many states (including Indiana) the 2 passenger listing makes the FZR illegal to ride 3 OR tow any person.

That's why I went with the FZS although I don't tow much. Kinda wants to rip the rope out of hands when the boost comes on.
That said, I can't imagine the water cops ever stopping an FZR pulling a tube with a spotter on my lake. But it could happen. I've see a 3 person ski pulling a tube with 3 kids on it throughout the summer. Cops are not on my lake very often.
