Get the 1100 ZXI. Got a 96 with a 07 engine with 40 hours and a trailer for 1,300. This thing is fast Both these ski's eat gas so you gotta take that into consideration. If well maintained then they will last a long long time. Do the oil blockoff as the oil pumps tend to fail like all other 2 strokes. Premixing isnt that big of a deal anyways. my 1100 is FAST I didnt even expect it to be too fast. Also both these ski's have a low weight maximum. Like 350 lbs or something so its good if 1 person is ususally riding it. Me and my gf use my 1100 very well but it wobbles when its not going above idle.
