FZ series rough sea handling
Have anyone tested the FZ series(FZR/FZS) in rough sea? I´m going to by a new PWC and want to drive some longdistance races and need a good ride. I have heard that the Kawasakis is the king in choppy water, but is the new FZR/S ore the FX SHO any good?

I am interested in the FZS and would like to know also how it handles the rough water.I have a Kawasaki 250X currently and will buy the 260X if the FZS won't stay up in rough water.Using the regular unleaded fuel would be a big plus with the Yamaha though.

i will try to get out soon for some rough water testing on the fzr- its just been too cold lately-i will say the little bit off chop i ran through my first time out was nothing for the fzr vs. the rxpx which felt very skittish in the front end dancing back and forth and the yamaha was rock solid felt like i could have ridden with one hand on the bars in the same conditions as the seadoo where i was sqeezing the bars tight but need more saddle time for more accurate evaluation-a good friend of mine is a pro rider who i will take with me next time out for better feedback than me

I would imagine the FZR would be just as good in the rough water (if not better) as any current 3 seater (except the Ultra). It is probably better than an RXT as it has a 2 inch length advantage and a better hull design for cutting through chop.
Being 11 inches longer than an RXP it should run right past it in the rough too.

I have proved the FZS and the FZR in roug sea and flat sea.
My experience is that I have liked it ... many mas that my SHO CRUISER, my sho is mas easily to handle in rough sea but also many mas jumps that the FZ, bony that takes off of the sea...
The FZ is mas playful and enterteining, in the navigation in rough sea recoje mas waters down that the sho and it has mas traction in the water. It is what mas I have liked...
Also it has many bulging mas (reprix), I AM CHARMED WITH THIS PWC

I personally have'nt rode it yet in big seas but hope to do it soon, I am 6'3" so i'll see how she handles with me.
By watching this bike and how it was handling in the race,
All i can say is WOW!

I too can't wait to here the news about the FZR in heavy chop. I'm trying to decide which ski to buy next, the RXTX or the FZR!...
