  1. Current model 22 TE vs Gen 1 22 TE

    Appreciate the offer, nice ride you have there. I keep hearing that about the 24, looks like they did a great job with the layout. The ones I've seen for sale are a little out of reach. I have to run the 22 before I make any decisions and will hopefully do that in the coming weeks.

    Headhunter thank you for your response. Love the light gray it looks great. I looked at a new 2018 today and it was nice, going to hopefully run it this week and see how it handles.

    No one here has experience with old and new TE's?
  4. Current model 22 TE vs Gen 1 22 TE

    Hey guys, looking for some feedback here. I may be selling my current boat soon and I have a few boats I'd like to replace it with. One of those options is a 2014+ 22 TE. I have spent a tremendous amount of time on a friends 2004 22 TE with 200 hpdi Vmax and I've always been a big fan of the boat. It's holding up pretty well considering he runs it hard, way harder than I would if it were mine. I have a pretty good grasp on the running characteristics and quirks of that hull and would like to hear from someone that has spent time on both as I have never run a current production model TE. I really like what PF has done with the changes they have made over the years, the current generation seems like a much nicer more refined product. But outside of the obvious changes how does the new gen run compared to the original? Is it a more solidly built boat? Current gen is heavier I am assuming less efficient? Does the new gen ride better/heavier in the bay chop? Any pros/cons I am missing? For or what it's worth I would most likely shop a lightly used 250 sho powered boat, but if it makes sense financially I'm not opposed to ordering one with a 200 sho and starting with a basic/clean slate I can upgrade over time just the way I want which is simple and efficient vs loaded with options. Thank you to anyone that may have any insight on this.
