looking to buy a 3 seater ( newbie)
I am looking to buy a 3 seater ski,
I will no doubt want to mod later on, seeing this on youtube has me wandering how much it it will cost me to do this on a SHO if iwas to go down that track.
I have not made my mind iether way yet, I am hoping to ride both skiis in the next week or so.
any info will be greatly apprieciated

I love the looks and features of both of these ski's but IMHO i would say the SHO would be the best choice...Unless you ride in HEAVY chop the Ultra but even in a good amount of chop the SHO will also handle it and the SHO is just an all out beast in holeshot and handling..we have yet to see top speed #'s over 70 but that's just because not a lot of modifications have been released yet unlike the 250..it's personal preference you'll make up your mind when you ride them both but...I think you'll love the SHO honestly

I looked at the Kawi's here when they first came out.
I think they are a very nice package and look great in the bright red, but after finding out they need premium gas and how much theY seem to use I'm glad I waited for the SHO.

if you get the Ultra make sure you order the fuel extender, see below...

I got to ride a 250x.
I a was more than impressed with the way it performed in the rough, I can only judge this from the other guys who were with the group I went with ,
this was my first real solo ride on the ski and I was lucky enough to have spent a few hours on the ski,
yes it used some fuel , but after 3 hrs of screwing around in the surf & flat water playing drag races, I will not complain, I am used to 2 stroke dirt bike and it is a simple as fun cost money.I dont know wot this yoyo guy is on about! the seadoo wasnt that far behind on needing extra fuel. anyway I dont care!
I rod a 160ho , and a rxt215, gpr1300 today .
hey they are all good in there own points but I feel that the way the 250x felt so sure footed in the water was miles in front when compared to the other skiis. (I hated bikes that felt vaig in the front).
I got to race a red SHO I think, I couldnt believe how much faster than the 160ho it was. but on the ski I was riding , had no trouble passing him in the ugly stuff, maybe he was taking it easy but all I can say was hang on what ever you ride , when you ride in open water, that sh.t tries to kill you. I am no expert but have 6-7 years of moto cross riding under my belt and today was like nothing I have ever experienced, **** my arms are sore.great day had I can tell you.
I was told that next weekend there will be a SHO coming out with the group.and I have the chance to get my ass on that to see how it performs.
any way who cares wot brand it is , lets just have fun.
this is a cool site

pm me and I will take you out with us,
my ski is better then the stock 250x, just to give you a chance to feel stock too modded, I still get no different time out of tank. I find its either fuel you use or repairs to there skiis, all equal out in the end.
