Yes it is true. I should actually ride both before choosing one or the other.
These are great boats and I chose these 2 to talk about because they both seem to have similar specifications.
These are not the only 2 brands as possible 'future' boat choices. Skeeter, phoenix, Ranger, Stratos, and Nitro are all possible choices. Depending on when I am wishing to upgrade is basically what I can afford. Buying a Stratos seems to be pretty affordable compared to ranger prices.
