. As a matter of fact,this pole is assinine. If
they were in the same price catagory it would be one
thing. Since an O.L is about twice the price, The
pole should be.... which would you rather have,for
the money!


put a set of 525's in an OL 39 and a set in a Fountain 42 and my money's on the OL

I'm sure anyone can get an Outerlimits with stock power if they wanted to. That is if maintenance was an issue.

Tell Reggie you want a set of 1000+ Sterlings in a Fountain and you'll get em - with the additional 100K + additional cost too

By the way,you can by a 42 ex for about 225k
What would the O.L go for? 500K? For 500k I
could by a 42 Fountain with twin 1050,s and blow
your 525 equiped O.L. away!!! Compare money to money.

Pick a side and stick too it! You said the Fountain was faster and unlike vette verses lambo. No secret a custom high quality / non production line OL will cost more. I'm just saying take 2 with equal power and run em in the ocean.

Ummm, Mercury has their hands in Fountain so that is kinda a funny statement you made. I doubt you could "tell" Reggie that you wanted Sterlings and it would happen just like that. I think there would be alot more to it than that. Not saying it wouldn't happen, but come on. Fountain has to look out for Mamma Mercury. They pay the bills.

They learned to live with his record setting run without them (still had Mercury on the side which was funny, should have specified was Mercury drives!)
