• I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"

    http://www.snowestonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=269222

    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.

650 Matryx RMK

The wife and daughter both ride 2020 RMK PRO 600 155. The 600s are great for lighter less aggressive riders, they weigh about 120 with gear, as they are easier for them to control. We ride in the 5,000 to 8,000 elevation of central Idaho and find the RMK PRO 600 155 to be a great sled. The 600 has no problem spinning the 155 - 2.6" track.

The RMK Khaos Matrix Slash 650 with the 155 2.75" might be a real sweet spot for this coming season.

Don't look for any great fuel savings, the 600s use almost as much fuel as the 850s.

Just my $.02

Do your 2020’s have a series 2.6 or series 5 2.4 track? The sled we have for my wife is a 2020 and it’s a series 5 155 2.4”.

I think I am going to put my QD2 on that sled. It could stand to have a little more bottom end quickness.

The idea of trying a 600 - 650 has crossed my mind the last few days. I ride at 2000' So horsepower wouldn't be lacking too badly, and I'm only about 175lbs after a good dinner..

I just find it odd that there is only a $1000 (Canadian Dollar) difference from the 650 to the 850. $376 per month versus $401 per month. I mean, what kind of tight budget would I need to be on to consider that $25 a month difference, $300 a year..

It just doesn't seem like its worth it to me really. I understand there are women, and teens out there that only need a 600.. but, for anyone who is used to the 850 power, I think the $1000 difference is more than worth it.

However, I may buy a used 600 pro if the right deal comes along..

Yep, they didn't start putting the 2.6 on the in-season 600s until 20 or 21.

Yes we have a snowcheck 2020 600 for my wife, it has the 2.4. He is saying both his 2020 600’s have 2.6.

Anyhow. I wouldn’t be opposed to get the 650 RMK for newer, or riders who don’t need more power most of the time. I can ride that 600 out of most every situation. It’s not going to make a straight up deep pow pull but it’s a very capable package. Most of our riding is 5000-6000’.
