Default Spectre 30 w/ 300 question

Can anybody give me some real life numbers and pros/cons comparing the 300 Promax vs. 300X vs. the 300XS on a Spectre 30.

What would somebody notice going from one to the other?

Thanks.

Something must have been wrong with the XS's. All the XS's I have been around have had great fuel economy.

Agreed. My dad has a 300xs and it sips fuel.

They are all thirsty at WFO! And thats the way we roll. Here on the Potomac !!!! And yes Martin's Spectre with xs's would run 107 with both our 250# a$$'s in the boat.

Is Martin on this board? I'd love to ask him a few questions about his 300XS's and Spectre 30.

I tried to type that he ran WFO but the computer i was on is crap. He always told me the boat got its best mileage at full throttle, then laughed.
