Yamaha vs SeaDoo

Found a gps for $200 instead of $400? Does Sport Chalet have a sale? Want to share a coupon? Post it here!

Any opinions on the 'cruiser' type seats? I like the comfort of them but I'm curious if the humps get in the way while fishing. The large end backrest looks the most obtrusive but seeing how the cooler/rod rack is already in the way I'm not sure if that's an issue.

I'm constantly sliding along the seat on my non-cruiser HO when fishing. The cruiser seats would get in the way and I wouldn't want them.

I've got the fxho, not the cruiser. I picked that so it would be smoother. My gf is turned around backwards while we are trolling for white bass and stripers and it works very well

I noticed a post in the freshwater section that discussed this topic and had 2 replies about preferring the Cruiser for the ride comfort/back support and one for regular HO. I can really see where I'd like to have both seats and switch depending on what type of fishing I was doing that day or a non-fishing day. I can only imagine an extra seat would be overly expensive when there are so many other things I'd like to add to the ski or my gear. I think I'm leaning toward the regular seat for overall utility, but availability might make the decision for me.

Edit: I ended up going with the standard seat and after 2 weeks I'm glad I did. Much easier moving around, especially when grabbing a rod with a fish on while trolling.

Hi..

A thought.

I will often drag bait. I will turn around completely and lean back against the handlbars.

I don't know if you could comfortably do this with the stepped seat.
