My Promax 300's have been solid. I've heard great things about the X's. I would go with the 300Xs.

This was your first year with it right? I was planning on a bigger boat, Top Gun or the Apache in classifieds. Went and looked at the Apache, made an offer which was not accepted. Ended up ordering a couple prochargers for my Scarab. Maybe some of the prices will come down on the Guns this time next year.
