Both. You just have to decide which to buy first

They are a totally different animal. It's like asking someone if they'd rather have dinner or lunch.

The hydro will be faster, but the runner has a way more scale appearance.

I have owned one of Dana's boats before (see pic). The workmanship is excellent and they are really fun to drive.

Enjoy making your choice
