I just got back from the UP, and there is definetly something up w/ my suspension. I just had my shocks rebuilt in my 2003, but it just isn't sucking up the moguls like it used to.

I'm thinking of just upgrading to a 2007 F6/F8 Sno Pro. Has anyone had these new sleds out in the moguls? How is the handling through the turns and bumps?


Thanks for the help!

Hey.I was the biggest fan of the firecat chassis and I had the chance to try a prototype F chassis last year for 3 days and it is not even close. That new chassis is the best by far.

Definetly enjoy the summer! If you ever need anything in terms of foot'n/skiing/boarding let me know. I give good discounts to fellow sledders :) CHICAGO MASTERCRAFT ALL THE WAY!


Back on topic.....sounds like its time to trade the 2003 in! Going from an 03 F7, what would the 07 F6 feel like? Is there a big difference in power?

Hey good news on the discount thing, I may need one of those in a couple of years. My wife skis and my kids will be soon and the old Bass boat might be getting tired soon. She even tried to barefoot last year. We had a friend on our lake that was trying to teach her. looked to painful for me.

And back on subject, even though I got a Z1, wow it out handles my F7 I have to say!

Barefooting is AWESOME....can't be the rush :) Let me know whenever your in the market! [email protected]


I am debating whether to keep the 03 F7 for the rest of the winter, or trade in now and have a new sled for 2 months of riding.

Tough call. If you can get a good deal now I'd trade.

What are people paying for the F8 SP and F1000 SP?

It really sucks that I know I could wait until March and get a smoking deal when the 08's come out :(

I had the same debate over F6 or F8 . . . Having the f7 I think the F6 would be a let down, performance wise the 7 & 8 are very close!

Go Mastercraft!

Erkoehler, see my post on my first ride on the F-8. Also gotta respond to your avatar. I've been a tournament driver and skier for years. One of my best buddies has been on Mastercraft's promo team for over 20 years, and I am also great buddies with the other Mastercraft promo guys in our region. We get up to Wilmington from time to time. I'm a Nautique promo, but love your boats. Hope you have a great winter and move plenty of boats this spring! :thumbsup:

2007 is going to be a great year for MasterCraft, and Chicago MasterCraft. The 2007 Tournament Team boat is one of the best boats MC has ever built!

I'd wait and get an 08 considering all the problems they are having with these 07's. Just stick it out on the 03 for a couple months if you can.

Any one of you guys get me ski pro pricing on a new 70" Monza?[/b]
Not sure what you mean by "Ski Pro" pricing....but if you want a discount, yes.

I'll look into ordering an HO ski. We don't stock them. However I know for sure that I can order you a Radar ski....these are supposed to be the best on the market now. Let me know if your interested.
