    Re: Superjet or sxr

    depends what kind of riding.. mainly bouys and carving, going fast? Sxr, they are larger more stable boat.. 800 engine makes more power on the top end.. any other kind of riding from surf, any kind of freestyle? superjet.. they are lighter, the engine makes more low end torque than the 800 and the superjet has a larger pump.. the weight difference is about 80-100lb difference i believe.. the 08 up superjets are great for bouy racing as well.. the superjet will not fatique quite as quickly as the sxr as it is a lighter, more flickable ski.. both are great skis and have their own advantages and disadvantages.. overall riding anywhere id say superjet even though ive always like kawis..

    96-08 are basically identical besides graphics. 09 had some small changes to the hull.

    the 09 and up superjets have a factory 1 inch setback pump for better hookup and deeper chines for better tracking and stability.. they also have some small molded in tubbies..

    It looks like superjets hold their value more too, based on craigslist listing vs SXR's.
