    FX hull VS FZ hull???

    I have an 07' FXHO and I am interested in the new FZ series to get more power and the telescoping steering. How does the hull of the new FZ compare to the FX? I know it is lighter than my FX but is it as deep of a V for handling chop? I see the FZR is rated as a 2 person but it is only 1" shorter than my FX. I like the way my FX handles chop so I want ot make sure the FZ is just as deep. There is noone around my that offers demo rides and where I ride it can go from butter to 2'-3' chop in a very short time. Any info is apprecitated, Thanks

    according to watercraft world/Jeff Hemmel the hulls are very close with the running surface of the FZ being shorter. Fz has full length lifting strakes to improve top speed, and a dihedral keel shape to improve high speed turning.
    The pump inlet is larger than on the FX also. Fz has different chines to help it lean in turns

    It looks like it is as deep but has a rounder shape.

    agreed...FX has flat outside chines (more stability) but FZ has round outside chines (more lean-in) going with the stable/SHO for the offSHOre riding im doing....but if ur doing CC courde....FZ might be the way to go....
