    Need info / help

    Hello everyone I am new member
    I would like to buy a jet ski and I would like to get some info/help

    I do not need anything fancy just to have fun with more freestyle then speed.

    There is three ones that I am thinking of it ZXI 1100, STX 1100 and one that I like most Ultra 150.
    I know that ZXI and STX share same engine, how is Ultra when comes to parts/performance.
    I have two kids that's why I concern STX.

    Thank you for your help.

    The Ultra 150 is a performance 'Ski. It will blow the doors off of the others--not for kids.

    ZXi is a fun 'Ski. There was a problem with the '96 model year hull and there was a recall on that year to add a plate on the front to improve handling. Other years are OK.

    The STX is a cruiser. It's not particularly fast or maneuverable, but it gives a nice stable ride and can carry you and your kids at the same time.

    Thank you so much for your help steve45
    Look a like you are most experience one on this forum when come to old school jet skis.
    I know that you have both Ultra 150 and STX my kids are not the old enough to ride by them self.
    So I'm thinking more likely for me but with consideration of them go with me for a ride so the question is if Ultra will be enough stable and safe to take kid with me (one at the time and he will be up front)

    Well, I'm certainly not the most experienced one here, by any means...

    The Ultra 150 is a two person 'Ski. With the STX, you can take both at the same time. They're both stable at low speeds. Some complain about the Ultra being 'twitchy' at high speed. As Region8Ultra250X said, the STXR would be a great choice, too!

    I would love to get STXR but can not find one I checked Craigslist, Ebay for months.
    Look's like there isn't so many of them. It wont be hard on parts? Engine look same as Ultra?
    If I'm going to buy STX what should I check any particular year?
