    deep vee guys

    I'm not sure about you deep vee guys but the Sportmaster lower combined with the XR in a 'cat application works very well in-fact. during testing comparing it with the Imco, the speed was the same and the handling ,with the long skeg on the merc was exceptional. We had some failures but they were in the top end. overall the drive works well. Now once again that is a cat application surfacing the drive over 100 mph.

    I agree however, an intermediate drive (between the 6/xr would be a instant hit.

    as for the bravo being faster. can't think that slow

    Hey bud I think you are confused. The sportmaster is an XR the only difference is the design of the lower case. The sportmaster upper has a steel tower in the cap where the XR does not. Just adds a little strength to the left rotation set up

    You think the 6 is not competitive in SCL? We won a national championship witha 6 on the boat. Granted we had to pray for rough water. I do think they should eliminate the 1000# penalty for the 6.
