    800 SX-R Stability-Ride

    How much more stable is a 800 SX-R than say a 550, 650 or 750. I know it is wider and heavier. I am looking for a ski to carve with and ride some rough fresh water. I don't think I will be doing any tricks. I currently have a Ultra LX which I love. I am looking to get my first stand up. I have decent balance. I slalom ski in a course, ride dirt bikes and paddleboard in rough water.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    The 800 is much more stable than the older ones. I own one and am 6,4 200lbs and for me itís still not a great ride in rough water. None are. You can get sponsors and such that make it smoother but I would definitely go with the 800. Thereís a learning curve but itís easy

    the sxr hull handles any condition better than its predecessors. except for getting airborne maybe.

    Very cool! If you feel the need for some extra handling and stability, check out ProWatercraftrcing.com and get yourself a set of front sponsons... They will make a huge difference!

    You know what I bought a set once for a 750 sx and I hated them. It all fairness I probably didn't put them on right with the correct angle. Do they come with instructions for how to get the correct angle and install properly?

    They come with instructions and you can always give them a call, they are very helpful.

    SXR's are heavier, but they can launch too.

    Prowatercraft setup is actually very stable. Some setups ive ran were good for racing but chine walked a lot and weren't good for cruising or newbies. 1st thing to go is the stock handlebars though !
