We had a great day on the lake today with the new Sparks. The break in period is complete so it was time to see what the skis would do. I was very impressed with the 2up HO with IBR. Sport mode was great.
I have 2 90hp H.O. 2 ups. I ran the crap out of mine to break it in and my wife rode hers in what I call"granny mode". We swapped out and I rode hers and it felt sluggish compared to mine. She rode mine and said it had so much more power than hers. You could easily feel the power differences. I started throwing hers around like I had mine and finally broke hers in to where they are pretty matched on power. I love these skis. I also have a Big 98 GTX Limited 3 seater and love the towing power I get from it. I was wondering if anyone has attempted to pull a tube or skier behind the 2ups? I have not attempted this and I know the manual says that you should only pull with the 3up, but I towed a bigger jet ski back to shore with my spark and had no issues with it and barely felt that the jet ski was even back there. As for NetAtNite's question - I was only getting spray when riding crosswind or while throwing it around.
