The Fountain fish team run them on their 38' CC, and they like them. They also run the 300XS, and they like those better. I want to say that the XS is as fast, maybe faster, with fuel economy only slightly less than the Verado. The XS is lighter and if my memory serves me correct, they said they had less maintenance issues with the XS.
This is all second hand. I am sure people with first hand experience will chime in.
