    Talking kawi ultra 150 vs pro1200 ?

    I went to my local dealer and saw next to a mint polaris slx a kawaski ultra 150 (wanna say 2001 or 02) This thing was bad ass. Stock and beyond clean ! I did a little research and saw these things hall. What do you think the performance difference is between the two ? I might wanna trade the dealer. I was in shock and aw when i saw this thing ! comments ?

    That year would be a Ultra 150. That ski and the 250 Ultra's are one of the best rough water hulls around,but the 150 doesn't even compare to the 250. So don't pull the trigger till you learn more on them.My guess is the Pro would kick it's ass in smooth water.I'm sure someone that knows the 150's better then me can tell you more.

    A Pro will not touch an Ultra in the smooth. They will run an average of 64-66 stock and will turn on a dime. The will beat your brains in though, kind of like ride the pro. They take some time to get used to but they will still beat most things on the lake and be the best wave jumper you can find. If you ride in rough water then the Ultra 150 and the Pro are really not the ski's you should be looking at.

    the ultra 150 is a flat style bottom like the slx's,its a haulass ski in smooth water,but in a closed course bouy race the pro will hand it its ass every time.no comparision,2 different skis built to do 2 different things.the ultra's and slx's are very similar in hull design.both will make max speed becuz of the how flat the hull bottoms are but beat you to death in the rough,the pro is better in rough but still light and small so it takes a beating as well

    How would a 2001 SLX fare against a 1999 Ultra in smooth water, acceleration and topend?

    my old 785 pro used to whip on ultra 150s all day long, also it would beat the pro 1200

    You would have them right at the hole but he would take you as soon as he hit his power band and leave you by about 4 mph.

    Also, once you put a shredmaster plate and sponsons on a Ultra 150 it will cut harder then a pro and handle the chop better. This was the setup that team kawasaki dominated with when it came out.

    Actually that's what I wanted to hear, I found a really nice one I may buy if I can get my brother to take the Polaris off my hands.

    the slx will run about 63mph stock,comparing a unpiped pro1200 to a piped 785 ain't even close,but my stock port triple piped pro1200 with only 42mm carbs will flat spank a stock pro785 from a dead stop and just keep pulling from him
