    Kawi Deep V hull vs stx15 Hull????

    How big of a difference in the 2. Got a 15F and do mostly ocean journeys . Curious how the bigger hull is.

    I'm curious on this too, as my STX 1100 hull appears very similar to the STX 12F. which I think is the same as the 15F

    If I was to upgrade, it would be purely for a better ride, nothing else, so hoping there is a big difference

    I assume your referring to the Ultra vs STX Hulls? If so they both have their advantages. I have both and love my 12 and my buddies 15f on the river where it's smooth. Lots of playfulness to it and just fun to ride. The Ultra would rather throw you across the river than do any sort of spin. However, when it's time to hit the bay and the ocean I am quite grateful for the Ultra, and can lap my 12F and even others who have other similarly powered brands. I am glad to have both, and enjoy them equally..

    The 15F has a better ride in rough then your 1100 because of weight. In the flat stuff your 1100 would be fun because of the lack of weight. Get a 15 you wont be sorry.

    As Rescue says it is a big difference. The 300/310 really plows because of HP and weight. The Ultra LX (N/A) does well just not as fast and does not stay hooked as well but handles the big blue no problem. Shawn Alladio of K38 Rescue has been using them (LX) for a long time now and these folks use these skis. They hold up well.
