I have a 190 and love it . I would like to have a bigger boat but that is what I can afford and it is great.

Do they handle rough water well?

I have a 2011 with a 150. I love my boat and it's plenty enough to boat for me... The 175 will really help you out also. A half tank of gas just me on a good day I'll get 50 to 55 mph. It's good and stable and the ride is good too. I fished my first skeeters owners and had worries about how bad the lake would be for my boat. It handled like s dream. I was hanging with the big boats! The only complaint about this boat I have is the live wells, they are small no questions asked... I don't tournament fish on a regular basis maybe an open here and there but if you did catch 5 good ones it's going to get really packed for those guys all day.

I have one with the 175 as well. With just me in it, it'll run about 64 on glass. It is a dry ride, but definitely doesn't run big swells as well as a 21 footer. Of course I'd argue 3 footers aren't any fun in a 21 footer either. I have no complaints about the boat whatsoever.

The livewells are different sized from a 190 say to a 21 footer? Never looked at the capacity.

I have a 96 zx180 that I have restored with 175 and it handles great. It's 18 6" but feels bigger while fishing. You will enjoy it.

I just bought a TZX 190. Only made two trips on calm days but so far I love it. Plenty of storage for me and plenty of deck space. My last boat was a Champion 191 DC Elite and this boat has more deck space. Mine has a Vmax 150 and will do around 58 top speed which is more than enough for me. Not sure how different the ZX and TZX are.

I believe it's the same boat but the tzx is not as standard as the Zx, the tzx doesn't come standard with lighted compartments, pump out, also the made the ice chest a storage compartment where mine is under the seat in the middle.... Still a great boat but not not as tourney ready. You can still add the same options to the tzx 190 bug it raises the standard price. I love this boat. When I make e7 I will buy an fx 20!

Again I don't tourney fish, and still haven't filled all my space. I actually use my under the center seat ice chest as storage and use my left rear storage as a ice chest. I removed the handles from my ice chest and drop a real ice chest for long days. Just because it keeps ice longer than the ice chest on the boat.

I have had mine for almost three years now. I still love it.
2012-2014 ZX190s are essentially the same. Great storage. 8ft rods fit in either rod locker. The live wells are plenty big. They are the same size as my buddy's ZX20.
It fishes the same as it's larger brothers. Very stable, large front deck.
With the 175 it's a nimble, quick boat. With a full load, full fuel and full livewells it take a few seconds longer to get on plane. Empty it take about 3 seconds, full it's about 6.
It is a very dry ride even in big stuff. The ride in big swells will depend on the driver. Seat time will teach the best ways and angles to approach rough water. It's a stable ride but can get rough. You may need to ice down your marbles after a long, rough run.
