    pro1200

    What is the top speed of a Pro 1200? Is the under of the hull the same as a SL780? Also what is the top speed of a SL1050 and does it have the same hul as a SL780?

    the pro 1200 should run 60-63 and the 97 sl1050 about the same the pro 1200 has the same excact bottom hull as the pro 785 . i'm really not sure of the 1050 it should be the same as the 96 slx 780

    I think the Pro 1200 Stock was low 60's, on a modified Pro V hull. The others I am not sure of.

    You sure?? I think it's like the 03/04 MSX hulls, there are minor differences but they are different.

    What lugs and everyone else has said.

    Is the under of the hull the same as a SL780?
    No, Sl780 and Pro 1200/785 hulls are different.

    Also what is the top speed of a SL1050
    ohhh say 59 to 62, or like Lugs said right about the same as the pro 1200

    and does it (sl 1050) have the same hull as a SL780?
    I think its real similar if not the same... Keep in mind though, the PRO hulls are much different than any of the hulls on the regular SL skis...

    The hulls are very similar, but I don't think they are exactly the same. Every Pro 1200 I've ridden handles slightly different than my 785s. However, it could be the weight/placement of the engine. In any event, the different is negligible.

    the 1200 i have handles way different and seems very top heavy . i can't wait to see how it handles with the tripple pipes in it . everyone i talked to says it will never handle like the 785 though .

    Possible clarification.

    The Pro 785 & Pro 1200 hulls are NOT exactly the same, but the differences are so small that only a savvy Polaris expert could tell the difference..

    The main difference externallly is some small "outward" radius points just ahead of the sponsons on the Pro 1200. The 785 top deck will fit perfectly on the 1200 bottom, so obviously there isn't much different there.. The big difference between the two boats, and why the 785 handles so much better is weight distribution (to account for the heavier motor) and the taller center of gravity from the new 1200 top deck..

    The 1200 is a better recreational boat, but if you want to carve bouys the 785 will be a better choice.. Both are tons more fun to ride than most of the "sissy" boats available now.. LOL..
