    I feel more stable on my 2012 FX SHO than on a friend's 2010. I'm a huge dude, and I can stand in one footwell without it capsizing.

    Robert, I can only speak on behalf of the newer FX hulls, but mine is stable as a rock. Either at rest or at idle speed manuvering through no wake zones w/ my wife and ice chest on back.

    Not true at all... I have about 85 hours on my 2012 FX HO and not once have I felt that I was going to tip over at idle, even in rough spots on Lake Lanier.... I also have a 2008 FX with about 300 hours so I have something to compare to.... cheers... I love the new hull...

    Agree with all comments so far. I have a 12 fx sho and have about 60 hours in all conditions and it is awesome to ride. I can also stand in one footwell and not come close to tipping over. In fact I can't even get water to fill the well if its calm water. You and your wife will be extremely happy with it. I also have FZR's that I thought were pretty stable but this thing is like riding a Cadillac. Very good in all water conditions and one of the best I've ridden in rough water. Go for it!!

    I have a 2013. The only time I managed to flip it was during a storm in the Bahamas. I weigh 280 and I can stand on one side and it leans but it doesn't go over.

    Having come from a GP1300r, it is just ridiculous how stable these new FX hulls are. They are really in their element in open waters, or with a passenger.

    The only thing you will regret about not getting a 2012+ FX, is having not bought it sooner.

    I have a 2013 FXHO and never once has it tried to flip on me, and i love to tear it up. I stand on the sides at the dock and it holds my 200lbs just fine.
