Default 38 Cig TG -porpoise?????

Love the boat and its in my top three. Looking at a 38 Fountain, 38 Hustler and 38 TG. I've never riden in a TG but from land, water and watching some videos, I see a whole lot of porpoising. Can this be? Are all the boats I'm watching over-trimmed or are the drivers doing something wrong. Guys who have this boat please set me straight.
All others what are you likes and dislike about the boats I've mentioned.

Thanks for your input.

Of the three, I have only owned the Cigarette. I had a 2000 Top Gun TS and it was an absolutely incredible boat. I traded it this year for a canopied 2003 Cigarette Gladiator. This too is a great boat, but the top gun is KING! If your are serious about a Cigarette, give Phil at Lip-Ship Performance a call. He will treat you right!

The new 38 Twin Step is the best ride on the planet - o porpoise. Just ask the people who saw us spank em in the rough in Texas yesterday. I have a brand new 2003 Cigarette 38 TS in stock w/ 575's if you are interested.

A. A 38GT has an excellent ride when trimed right!
B. Hot Duck, HOT new boat!! I look forward to running against you in the near future (hopefully). I like your first picture from Key West with us (F2-07 Wild Child) in the background!

Hey Dave. Key West was a blast. I am kinda sad that the SBI worlds are not there this year, but I guess that we can survive in New Orleans.
