Hey dude.Hey JKMike,
how did you end this story with XFR. What did you finally decide? So what do you ride now, what setup? Please share your experiences. I am in the same dilemma as you.
Thanks in advance
I ultimately decided to go with a full carbon XFR and I love it! As far as the hull goes the only things I would have done differently is I wish I had gone with Textreme instead of the standard carbon. And I am a little unhappy with how the custom colors came out, well the orange any ways. I wanted it to be a bright neon orange and was extremely explicit about that fact. But what I got was a darker rust like orange. So if you decide to go custom colors make sure you make them show you exactly what it will look like.
A couple other things to note is that the XFR is basically a Gen 1 XFS bottom hull so one big difference between the current XFS G2 hulls and the XFR is the intake tract / pump tunnel. The xfr still uses the original smaller pump tunnel rather than the new giant one on the XFS G2's. The one on the XFR is also the same one as they use on the edge. Idk if that even matters to you, but I was a little bummed when I found that out.
Also here is my build thread for the ski. https://www.x-h2o.com/threads/my-first-am-build-rickter-xfr-full-carbon.199245/
