own a 16 doo xrs, 15 cat rr 6000, 15 axys switchback 600.

cat is the most durable, and best handling of all. Ditch stock skis, and few suspension adjustments, and that thing is a trail weapon. fit and finish is the worst, but i don't buy a sled for the way it looks in my garage. i buy it for function PERIOD. They all have things i like and dislike. lets just say that xrs is no light weight.

just picked up a 17' rr 6000. I have a pair of curves from my viper. debating putting them on or not. Stock skis push in lose snow?

the new cat will have more guidance systems in it than a cesna airplane.

As far as ride? I had a Yami guy ride my 17 with QS3's and an rmotion doo over the same trail... he said mine rode better. Pretty sure the rmotion is the gold standard as far as trail riding.
It depends on how that Rmotion was set up, and which model it was. My last sled was a Renegade X, and I would give a slight edge in both ride and handling to the Doo. But with the Cat, I don't have to worry about my bulkhead bending from hitting a dip in the trail, or my 800 blowing up after 4k miles.

It's great that Cat got their head out of their ass and started putting decent shocks on their sleds, instead of those rough-riding Floats that they were putting on almost everything. That company is lucky to have survived Mr. Home Depot's management. Fox Floats on trail sleds? Self-tapping screws on a chaincase cover? Chinese bearings in everything? It's like he was actually trying to sink the company.
