    Get the pro watercraft sxr sponsons. They are even discounted 100 dollars for the next week

    the destroyers are absolutely awesome on an sxr. they are much easier to install as well. ive never been a fan of drilling numerous holes in the side of a ski. the destroyers use 3 bolts to hold them and they work great.

    with the sponsons the nose will not dive as much due to the added buoyancy. once you install them you will wonder why you waited so long to get them

    Sadly, we never took the time to do any sponson testing on SXRs, so I don't have any useful input for you.

    Destroyers are easier to instal, Pro Watercraft sponsons work much better on the SXR hull. That's why most racers are making the switch. I actually through bolt mine with nylocks, so no worrying about them coming loose once installed.

    SM beat me to it. I bought both, ran both. Sold the destroyers. There is no comparison, imo. I have very little skill on my 1100 sxr so I need all the help I can get!

    Re: Your thoughts on Blowsion destroyers on 800 sxr

    I'd like to know what exactly in tje design makes these sponsons so dramatically different. I had Blowsions on my last boat and the ski was really stable at hi speeds and railed well but I also ran TBM rear sponsons. However, putting around on glass water at 15-20 mph, the ski would wobble side to side. I haven't ridden a lot of stand ups but I'd imagine the SXR isn't the only hull that that acts that way? Right now I'm up in the air about which direction to go.

    Yes the destroyers will make your ski wobble at 10mph. Even if I have my 2 year old on the ski giving her a ride we are going faster than the speed where destroyers chine walk. I have installed a few sets of the pro watercraft sponsons. Pulled em all off and re installed destroyers. They just work better around buoys.
