    Lightbulb Need HELP deciding..GP or WBII

    Alright, i have two options and need to decide

    What kind of rider am i? I like to have fun, jump but yet still have some speed.

    The WBII is a 96. He says low hours, the thing has filters, ride plate, primer kit and has been jetted. Looks like in good condition and comes with a nice karavan trailer..$1800...

    The GP is a 97 GP1200 with i think 66 hours. Mint condition, i know the guy and its been with him and our other relatives for MANY years. Comes with a nice trailer as well. $3000...

    I have driven the GP before, and i LOVE it.
    The WBII i havent, but i kinda want a two seater wtih more power.

    Help guys!

    Oh and hello, 1st post

    GP...the WBII is way underpowered with the 760 motor....now if you want to drop a 1200 in it, then it's a different story. The GP's hull is more in line for what you're wanting to do as well. The WBII hull doesn't create enough lift to really see any higher speeds.

    thrust me on this, Buy the gp. Faster, meanner, and still comfortable for a nice cruise. And better for riding with two persons just in case.

    Hi,
    well i think you have made your own mind up.

    just for comparison to add..

    i have a wave raider 700 deluxe, and a 1100.

    in the surf/ playing around i like the 700, it feels light and nimble, sits higher in the water, around easier ride than compared to my 1100. don't know if its just mine but the 700 is quicker for the first 20 meters then the 1100 come's into its own. the 700 don't have the "Pull your arms off effect" as much as the 1100, but it is quick all the same. my raider 700 eats GP 760's...

    from a little research, i have found that the WBII is quick of the mark, but lacks top end, due to the 155mm pump, and most of the weight being on the nose, hard to get the hull out of the water. more of a short slalom course ski. apparently they jump well in the surf though.


    the GP1200 i would imagine is similar to my 1100, feels quite heavy, but comfortable cruiser, and fast has hell.

    on calm days i like my 1100, on choppy rough days my 700. although i have just sold my 700, and bought a blaster 1!
