I drove a 454 and a 502 before I bought the 502 one... it is night and day difference in stock form. I pounded that 502 hard and it was a great set up.... Bravo One outdrive and I matted it every day.

Having owned both, 18-22 Donzi Classics, it's a totally different boat. I guess a good analogy would be a Baja H2X or the Donzi 22ZX

I'll try to look him up this weekend, he's got a vacation home up here.

Answers my question. Two 22ZX's for sale and the dealer will do financing, which I like and need. I've seen a Fountain like the one pictured that the owner will finance, so was thinking of looking between these two deals....... Make payments and get newer better boats!

Just throwing another option out there in that size range.
OH, and mine is NOT FOR SALE at the moment - just thought it might be something to consider.
Good luck in the search. - everything you've mentioned sound like good options.
