You....Will ...Love that Talon ! I have a 1998 Talon 25 with a factory 525 SC , Running just under 100 mph GPS with a tuned 28 pitch prop . I've had it for 6 years now , this boat compared to a shotty rigged So. Cal "E" Boat is far superior . The Talon is solid ( no deck flex ) and has superior handling , superior ride and all around timeless lines , not to mention 0 to 60 that melts the competition . Keep me in the loop , would love to here about your performance quest !
