Did any of yall ride in it at the Elite tourny last week at Toledo. Was curious because I rode in it just passing time and I dont know if that boat rides that bad or that guy driving didnt know what he was doing but I made him turn around and go back thought he was going to kill me. You would think they would put experienced drivers in those if they trying to sell them cause even if I was looking to buy one that demo wouldve changed my mind.

Riding passenger in a boat to test is pointless imo. You have to drive it. They wouldn't let you drive?

I fished a tournament once that was giving test rides when the Skeeter iClass first came out.. The jack wagon driving it was talking about how they turned on a dime. I am leaned over listening to him while we were running and boom he yanks that boat into a hard turn. I fished that tournament with whiplash. He was right it turned on rails, a little notice would have been great and he got an earful about being an idiot.

To your point the driver makes a difference. I am still tainted on skeeter because of that ride.

I know and no they wont let you drive but if there ever was a chance of me buying one which there aint that ride blew that shot. They should get people that can drive the dang boat not just any idiot. The boat seats sit way to high felt like you would fall out just sittin there.

Yeah that would have pissed me off! That guy might have wound up in the lake when we got back.

If you look at the KVD photo sequence post, the first thing I noticed is that their legs aren't even below the gunnel. Van Dam looks like he's sitting on the back deck the seats are so high.

I was in a Z8 a few weeks ago and it sat really high also. Kept feeling like I was going to fly out. Must be a Nitro thing. Although their fish and ski boats are fine but that's a different style boat.

I like the Nitro seats.

If you're scared.....they have grab handles to accommodate you.

They also have skeeters and rangers to accommodate.

Seats have always been high in a Nitro. Demo rides means you never make extreme right hand turns. Passenger safety.

I guess you can sit on the floor with a life jacket for a cushion too....same thing as a Skeeter seat.

Haha....just kidding.

Actually a Nitro is safer than a jet ski. And now, thanks to Lazy Boy seats, dryer than old ones too. Sitting above the wave spray! grin

Those Z21s look like great boats. They look setup for serious fishing platform wise and I would have no issue running one.
