I saw a new Fountain at the LA show and it still looks old. Doesn't do a thing for me. A SCOPE member has a really nice Hustler called Beetlejuice. It's sharp.

The uglier ones are ALWAYS faster. They have to be...

How many Hustlers are produced a year compared to Fountain? How long has Fountain been producing boats vs Hustler? thats simple math to answer your question.

BTW you have a nice boat, with some very nice speeds. Tom

hustler, no comparison, have looked at both,when i first saw a fountain up close i thought it had great quality,then i saw a hustler up close......
and i also think the hustler with same power would be faster.

I'm not sure that ANY review written in a PINK font is going to change a lot of minds here. Kinda reads like "poodle-ese" to me.
