    Ultra vs. Yamaha FZ Series in Rough Water

    I have been loyal to Kawasaki for years, but the new Yamaha FZ Series has my attention. Does anyone have a feel on how it will do in ocean riding and rough water?

    Nobody does yet. You'll have to wait for some magazines to do there testing. Shouldn't be long I don't imagine since the ski is being released to dealers in a couple of months.

    But, the 250/260 will be impossible to beat in the rough, no question. Its got a great hull, and its super heavy, which helps.

    Thanks for all the info .

    Why even bother with the post? Just to revel in the "prestige" of your position as "editor".

    I hate PWI even more now.... if that were at all possible.

    damn rusty....always gets the cool skis first...

    Ultra is a beast in the ruffstuff......i dont see any ski taking away that title anytime soon.......

    but the SHO has a better chance of taking the crown away from the Ultra in the offSHOre arena than the FZR......longer, heavier hull of the SHO with flat , outside chine is a more stable hull for offSHore applications....where as the FZR is better suited to CC course and hydrodrags (lifting strakes, lighter hull, bigger pump tunnel)

    We've seen the SHO motor unlocked at WF.....will be interesting to see whast it can do offSHOre....hmmmmmm

    Actually, no. My FZR test will not be in the next issue of Personal Watercraft Illustrated...but, it will be posted on our website www.watercraft.com later today!

    I'm sorry you feel that way. I didn't know this was such a sensitive subject.
