Depends on what your doing, they are both stupidly stable!! Great deck layouts on both and both have great qualities and have survived the rigors of surf launching in La Jolla and places to the south. The Xfactor tends to surf launch better and handles lumpy water and swell better, while the extreme tends to be a little bit better suited to calmer and flatter water. That being said if I was fishing bays and freshwater I would go with the extreme and if I was doing open ocean I would go with the xfactor. If your a guy over 220 I would go Xfactor if your under that the Extreme is more than up to the challenge of whatever you will throw at it!!! Good luck and try and test paddle both and see which one fits your needs better! Both boats will put you on fish! The first pic is an xfactor and the second is an extreme.....(I call this my JD tribute post:biggrinjester:)

Well what i would be suggesting is to go for a Malibu xfactor as it has got several advanced features than as to what a malibu xtreme has to offer.

Malibu X-factor is better than Malibu Xtreme. I got Malibu X-factor sit-on-top kayak after a lot of research and it sure is worth it. Even if you are new to kayaking you can easily learn kayaking on it. So it is both the best kayak for beginners as well as the best sit-on-top kayak one can own.

Hey tailpursuit, I think it depends a lot on what kind of features are important for you. I would definitely go for malibu X-factor because of extra features it suggests. I'd also suggest you to also check to the kayak fishing tips you find on this guide from Fishtripr.com. It gives really good info about the kayak gear and trips!
