FZR first ride
Finally got her out. I came from a 2007 FX HO crusier...... damnn talk about difference! Second I got on it, i could feel how nimble the hulll really is, its amazing. Acceleration (stock) is pretty damn good too. I may have felt slight cavitaiton but not 100% sure.... no bucking to report, but it could happen at any time so I am holding my breath, even chopped the throttle and nothing. Hookup is amazing. There was an RXT-x and an ultra 250x on the lake.....i wanted to race....... and they had to go in dang! maybe next time! but the fzr is a sick ski, it jumps wakes good too GPS'd 67.0 3/4 tank, trim was one click down. I didnt ride too hard though, I imagine another 1mph is easily possilbe.

hey guys. took delivery of my fzs last week and took her out for a spin just yesterday afternoon.
i must say i am mightily impressed. amazing hookup. i am most surprised by how awesome it sounds as it spools up towards full power. it just sounds mean.
my world is now torn in 2 between the superjet and the fzs - a cleverer man would have organised a dual trailer so i can pull them both to the shore and decide minute by minute - but i guess living just 10mins from the ocean has some benefit
interestingly i've had mine on order since early december (working in the middle east atm) and mine was in the first batch delivered here just 5 weeks or so ago. word is spreading as on the way to the beach, i stopped to fill her tank for the first time and a local guy offered my double what i paid to take her off my hands right then and there!
only after 30mins on the ski i realised i better not tell the wife because i wont be giving this baby back.
more news as it breaks.
