    Motor and chargers are both the same. Fx handles rough waters better. Both are going to need to chargers updated to the newest version for reliability.

    Ho skis are great. Just not as quick as a sho.

    So the fzs and fx sho aren't as reliable as the fx ho ? Is it the supercharger ? Even if it's not driven hard ?

    The supercharger can be an issue but I'm doubting it's a huge issue for the crowd who isn't so "push it more, push it more" about watercraft. I'd assume a lack of throttle control has been hard on these things for many as well.

    If you are going to ride in the surf I would stay away from Yamaha's NanoXcel hull. The FZ is a wet ride and needs a spray deflector IMO but it does handle nicely. The supercharger will fail no matter how the throttle is used but it usually won't take out the engine when it does.
