Trail sled Ski-doo vs Polaris

Any thoughts/comments on whats a better trail sled. Looking at Ski-doo Legend with SC10 III suspension vs Polaris 500 Classis with the M-10 suspension.

i don't think the legend comes in the rev chassis, so i would say the polaris is the better sled. if the legend came in the rev chassis, i would think it's the better sled.

M-10 puts the Doo suspension to shame - Rev or Not.

Snirt you know better than to tell someone who is looking for a trail cruiser to buy a Rev - that's a freeze-your-butt-off-ditchbanger- trail-wannabee sled.
Recently I was asked to play in a golf tournament.

At first I said, "Naw, I haven't been playing that well."

Then they said to me, "Come on, it's for handicapped and blind kids."

Then I thought...




Chit, I could win this!

Ken - I've heard the opposite from people who actually own one.

Rotax guy - been on a Rev6 for a bit last year - have an M-10 on my sled.

While the Rev riding position benefits the way your body handles the bumps (splits up the impact from back only to the legs and back) - its suspension still doesn't compare to the M-10.

Maybe I rode a badly setup Rev, it was nice, but still not comparable to the M-10.

Mee too Rotax. I heard the same thing from a friend at work and [b]SEVERAL[/b]REV owners[b](like all of them)[/b] on the trails last year. My Bud Just got a 600h.o.X this year. Trust me, I'll be riding it and seeing how sweet it really is. I'll share my experience on here with [b]ken[/b] and all the other non-believers.

I wouldn't know but two of my buddies got jumped the Polaris ship and got Rev 600's. Hopoefully I'll find out firsthand this week or weekend. I'm guessing both supensions are awesome.

Over a foot in Brainerd I hear. Have fun.

In my experience of riding different sleds,I think that the PRO-X Polaris has the best suspension that you can get from the factory. The F-7 snopro was o.k., but that's about it.Other than the suspension,you can have the rest of that heap! The 440Xl.c. also Rocks ,but pre-mixing is kind of a pain in the a$$! just my .02 .

Notice how I'm not mentioning anything good about any other [b][blue]BRAND[/blue][/b]! Those things are like riding bricks. The gas tanks on them are nut busters. But most of us already know that.:B

I rode a [blue][b]Yamahog[/b][/blue] once.....once!
