What they say
“From the angled bow, to the arching bondline and tapering into a widened fantail with a thickly padded, wider swimstep, the new FX is sleeker and bolder than ever before.”
- Kevin Shaw, Watercraft Journal
“The new deck of the FX Series is aggressive and bold, featuring stylish gunwales and an entire look that is supercar-sleek.”
- Dave McMahon, PowerSports Editor in Chief
“The new FX hull is very stable but is designed to lean into a turn more than past models, which makes it much more fun and comfortable when changing direction at any speed.”
- Boating Writer Charles Plueddeman
