    :clapping: Everride just came out with the Scorpion FX fixed deck. Looks like a cross between the original Surfer and the Wright Stander. Nice looking unit!

    I talked to some of the guys with R&D at Everride last year, and I don't think they were making many, if any, changes to the GenIISS. It probably is still the same Surfer with Everride logos. They had a chnace to really get creative on it, but I think they didn't want to outlay the $$ for a few years to see how it went. Nothing still beats the original Wright Stander, IMHO..., and if someone can, I'll be in line to buy three of them.

    They still need something in the small sizes. 32/36". I think their smallest stand on machine is 48.

    wright's look like a tank, those everride machines just look flimsy. i don't know why and can't really explain it but i think hwo a machine looks has a lot to do with it.

    I'll be sticking with the Wright, Everride looks like long and clumsy.

    Pugs,

    Wright now has a Stander in the 32/36" deck size. Their website is wrightmfg.com, check it out. They look like nice machines, though I have not personally used one.

    Man , some guys have all the luck with the big, flat yards..lol. I prefer to stand rather than sit on a Z. After we bought our Standers, I sold my 52" Z and both walk behinds. On the terrain we have around here, the Stander is the perfect fit for size, hp, and accessibilty.
