Lets put it this way.
My friend has a 2008 Ski Doo XP 800X and I have a 2008 F-1000 Sno Pro [ both equal riders ] and we were pretty much were exchanging paint on the real rough trails and big jumps.
They are that close but the only advantage to the F-1000, I was more comfy and less fatigued than my buddy on the XP.
I was up in NEK, VT this past weekend and coming off a 06 Sabercat 700 to my 08 F8 Sno Pro Nightfire nite and day difference times 2 or maybe more. I put just over 500 miles on in 2 days. Last year I put 330 in a day and a half on the sabercat and I was sore for like 3 days or more. Go for the Fseries I was doing about 50mph on some of the bumps from Derby to Canaan, VT.
On the firecat I called them bumps, on the f-series I call them jumps. sled is the best I have ever seen for holding a line in the rough stuff and being comfortable. very predictable!! not all worn out and beat up at the end of the day either.
