Turning abilities of 4-stroke Yamahas
So I have ridden my VX110 and my parents' SeaDoo GTX 155hp ski, and mine turns MUCH quicker, tighter, easier than theirs. I don't know if it's the extra weight of the Sea-Doo, the steering/nozzle range of motion, or what. So, do the FXHO, FXSHO turn much like the VX? Or does the extra weight or power tend to make them slower turners?

the fx hull will out perform the vx in every way.
in fact with correct application the gtx should way out perform the vx....
dont know if perform and 150hp go well in a sentence but hey...

The FX hulls are surprisingly nimble and quick turning for a large hull.

completely incorrect. I have ridden both, and the GTX won't turn for poop. I tried and tried to get that thing to "wag its tail" and at speed or sub-planing my Yamaha out-performed the SeaDoo. In fact my fiancee, my best friend, and I all agreed that the SeaDoo was for old people.

The difference is truly night and day. Especially in the holeshot. Only bad thing really is they are gas HUNGRY at WOT. ~19 GPH. Plus as an added bonus, there a lot of SHO riders in the 4 stroke performance forum, some of which can help out a lot when it comes to the inevitable mods.
