Just wondering how the Tigershark PWC's are in comparrison to say Yamaha's and SeaDoo's? Does anybody have any model history on them? it's hard to find much information on the web about them..

Thanks

Artic Cat should never have built jet skis period

I would never get on a tiger shark pwc for fear of getting stuck on it. Riding a tiger shark is like swimming in muddy water,"your wet but it ain't fun" Known for bad drive shafts and very poor quality and ride. :thumbsdown:

The newest 97 or 98 Daytona 1100 (before they stopped making them) was a good looking ski but I'd be scared of not being able to get parts for it.

I dont have a lot of ski experience but did have a tigershark and really liked it!...easy to work on, fast enough and parts were not a problem at all..pretty dry ride(better than my friends honda that every wave slapped you in the face)

I had a 98 TS1000L and the repair bills were high. The one thing I can warn you of is keep the inside dry. The stsrter will get wet and that is only the begining. When I finialy got it right it did preform. Parts are available if you look. I was happy with the Tigershark but no longer own it.

Tigersharks are good skis, they are just a little harder to find parts as Arctic Cat stopped making them in 1999. Many Cat dealers still carry parts and eBay is always a great resource.

have four tiger sharks 3 770's and one 1100 when something goes wrong and it's major problem you will have trouble finding parts, and if they are not run often then they tend to act up ... have replaced three starters in my 1100 over the past 3yrs...If I had to buy another jet ski I would not buy tiger shark as they are out of bus. since 1999.
