Scag seat questions

Looking at Scag Tiger Cats and Wildcats, and question is how much better of a ride does the soft ride or suspension seats offer ? How many here run the suspension seats ?

Local dealer has some left overs with the soft ride, and comparing to the new 2010 Tiger Cat with the SS option.

Demo is tough since we are pretty much into mud season now.


Thanks

Guess that really says it all. Suspension seat one way or another. Have tosee what they cost from scag versus the Michigan option.

I couldn't tell you what a fixed seat vs. a suspension seat is like in a comparison
because I've only ever used the suspension one, but it is nice and I don't think
I would want to do without.
