Looking for opinions on a 1200. Pro or slx?
I'm looking at getting a different ski and want to get a 1200 now. I found a few that aren't too far away from me, and i was originally looking for a 1200 slx but now a pro 1200 may be available. Most of the slxs' are 2000's and so is the pro. The pro would probably be the closest to me, but i'm not sure which i should go for now. I'm looking at possible mods down the road, and performance parts availability. What are some of the pros and cons of getting either ski? I know the obvious differences in handling. Help lead me in the right direction.

After posting this, related posts popped up on the bottom of the page. I see guys say the pro is a slower hull than the slx. That was one of my main concerns. What else?

It may be a tad slower on top end 1-2mph but the Pro is setup for adding bolt on trippple pipes...can't do that with the slx...alot more work to get the slx into trippples.

I guess that's good point since i wouldn't mind putting triples on down the road if i could find a set someday. i see you have your slx for sale. How much are you asking for it? What's all done to it?

That one has crossed my mind a few times, but i don't know if i'm ready for the big couch type hull yet.

Get a Pro. I have had an SLX (1050) for a few seasons and I just bought a Pro. I rode a buddy's and loved it. The hull is snappier, It handles and corners better (no more donuts however) but it picks up and goes. Planning a few add ons myself and I thought I would start with a boat I really liked.

I can get mine to spin out and do circles. I will sell you mine. Can pick it up at MB if you want.
