What's the difference?

Can someone tell me what's the difference in a Fountain Lightning and an Executioner??? Is it the bottom?

Depends on the model. The 35 bottoms are completely diff. The 42's are the same (lt/ex/pr) but cg's are diff of course.

The main diff is the deck obviously. Taller or shorter. What model?

Looking at a 42. Just curious if the bottom is the same on the two.

Depends on the year but currently the Ex is a single step and the lightning is a twin step.I think the pad is different plus 07 and newer lightnings are staggered

I thought on the 42's the bottoms were only the same for a few years, then the Reggie improved the bottom on the Lightnings a bit and kept the older bottom on the EX's?? I could be wrong but......

The bottoms are the same on a 2005 EX and Lightning. The difference is in the deck and windshield. Headroom in the cabin is better in the Lightning.
