welcome HI GUYS. I AM LOOKING AT DIFFERENT SLEDS FROM ARCTIC CAT. I LIKE THE FOUR STROKE JAG. WOULD THAT BE TOO BI FOR A FIRST SLED. I AM 5FT 11IN TALL. 205 LBS. WITH LITTLE EXPIENCE RIDING. MOSTLY WILL RIDE ON GROOMED TRAILS. THANKS! TSC. Not worthy:[/b]
My first sled was a 700 and had no problem with the power, nor would any one else that has any experience on any sorts of power equipment/heavy equipment. I have no idea what redd is complaining about (this time, its gotten to the point you cant read a topic on here with out him whining and crying) as I rode a jag for a couple hundred miles, thought it was smooth, and tame, with none of the jerkyness he states. I think it would be a fine first sled, and wouldnt think twice about putting a girlfriend, or my mother on one. An F5 is too underpowered for performance minded adults. Even if it is your first sled, you will likely be wanting more power well before the end of the first season.
