The 700/NXT Package on a Donzi 38 ZR has a neck snapping midrange punch that still amazes me and I'v heard nothing but praises so far with the NXT's on that boat.

Wouldn't buyers of a boat (any brand) of this performance rather have the #6 upper gears and lower case? I know I would.

Sixes suck up alot of juice- even the dry one's.

If I had the scratch, I'd buy Weissmanns.
