    Derek,

    I've found if I'm going into any big ugly water I take my MSX. If it's flat glassy water I would run the Geni.
    The MSX is much more ergonomically comfortable BUT it does have a list up to about 20 MPH.
    The fuel economy out of the 150 is better than that of the Genisis.
    I don't remember which is faster nor quicker since all my stuff is trippple piped BUT I think the MSX will plain faster than the genisis in stock form.
    One of the biggest factors for me would be service availability for the MSX150 as they require a little more finesse than a two stroke.
    Then there's the looks of the crafts...hands down winner to me is the MSX.
    Others will chime in here as well, Good Luck with your decision and let us know what you chose.

    04 MSX140 is by far the best Polaris PWC manufactured as far as I'm concerned.
    Killer fuel economy.
    Extremely reliable.
    60-62 MPH all day long.
    Easy to repair and maintain.
    I can't say enough about the 04 MSX140...unless of course you turn it into a Matrix, then I'll talk and type all night long.

    (2)

    Which one???

    Well, both of course!!

    JK

    I would lean toward the one that has been rebuilt as long as I could verify the quality of the rebuild.

    I think it would also be nice to know what was the reason/cause for the rebuild.

    Most of these skis ran out of the maufacture warranty, And have an extended warranty contract threw another provider. Check who is the warranty company. Second If it was an aftermarket warranty the like to use SBT for engines. And it is not the Factory engine any more. Check on whose warranty is it SBT engine warranty? You might want to go with the first one. But then there is alway EBAY and I'm sure Al has connections to some clean used machines. Might even see if anyone here knows of a buddy jumping ship and selling his unit.
