Triple 525's or twin staggered? Opinions inside.

I have a 38 fountain lightning w 525s and bravo xrs and here is what i can tell you. The bravos suck in my opinion. I have had many issues with them. The 525s are pretty reliable but have dropped a lifter in one at 250 hours. 2 700 with more reliable drives is the best option. 3 drives with 3 motors means you are always goin to have something wrong with either one drive or one motor once you get some hours on the boat. More moving parts translates into more parts that can break. If buying new not a huge issue, but used and using lot I would not like to have 3 of anything. I can barely keep 2 xrs and 2 525s running right for a whole season.

Just my .02
