    Ultra 250x how good?Or what to look for?

    Got chance of a 2007 ultra 250x with 64hrs on her.
    Was after a 300x or pref a 310 but here in uk kwak have stopped dealing to and the 300x seems very rare.So got offered this and was wondering what itd be like in comparison to say the 300?
    I know holeshot will be down but once upto speed in the chop will there be a big difference in handling and speed able to stay hooked up at?
    What should I look for if I go to view to buy this ski?When does charger belt need done if visually it looks ok surely at 7years old its past its best?

    I have owned my 08' 250x and I love the ski. I have added a riva ride plate, modded waterbox and a free flow. I try to race every new ski that comes to just to compare and I haven't found a ski that accelerates to top speed faster. My friend has the new FZR and I pull about two skis from him instantly and stays that way all the way to 67mph which is top speed for both of us. Two of my other friends have sea doos new 260 and same thing I pull two skis on them. Ive only raced one 300 and pulled a ski on him. 250x is a great ski.

    There are plenty of 250's that have many hours and with proper care and maintenance run well.
    The 250 does not go as well in the chop as the 300. The 300 has better hook-up. But 250 does well and is a bit more predictable when it really gets rough.
    In the UK most people do not realize the rough water you folks get. You want an Ultra, for sure.
    Change the belt.
