I have rode nothing but Pols. I rode my friends RTCAT the other night. I have to tell you I think it handles 10 times better than my 01 XC. It shifts way smooth. It also seems to have better braking capabilities. The Edge is nice on the moguls but cornering sucks. I still like my Pol, but a little less after riding the Cat.
yea, my 99 supersport corners way hard, even without good shocks. and the suspension has taken everything i can throw at it. the trails and powerlines around here get whooped up big time. and when i corner, its nice to have both ski's on the ground, unlike a ski-doo where the inside ski lifts. havent ridden cats too much, just enough to know that the ergonomics suck donkeyballs. and the seats are f'n round and have no grip to them at all, you just slide right off.
