I can give you first hand experience. Just traded my 46 rough rider in for a 46 outerlimits. Way less time on the OL of course. Here's how I see it. Cigarettes are really sexy, with the whole cool dash, paint scheme, lines are sharp, etc. They are heavy, and built for rough seas. My rough rider took big ocean well.
I traded to the OL because cigs are heavy, more boat to push, but really, the main reason, is the cabin and the build of the OL is awesome. They have a bathroom, that is real, a mini kitchen, nice air conditioning, etc. In addition, they are way lighter, run faster with less motor. There are no rattles, anything. My wife didn't like the cig, because of the cabin, loves the OL.
I owned a bunch of cigs, have a lot of cigarette clothes, etc, so does my wife. Was a big cig fan, hard to switch, but let me tell you, no regrets, the outerlimits is the bomb, and totally insane boats. If you can do one, that is one of the newer lightweight models, the absolute only way to go is a 46 OL.
