Default #6 drives

We are looking at a boat with #6 drives behind 700s with NXT Transmissions .
Do any of y'all have any positive or negative things to say about this set up ? We have no experience with #6 drives.
Thanks Chris

We have the same setup. The NXT transmission is the weak link but will generally be ok the stock 700's.

The NXT transmission is a cone clutch which is what a bravo drive uses. I think it is Bam that has an upgrade for this to make it stronger. They had to make a new tailstock to avoid moving engines forward.
