Anybody know where I can get some real life reviews or test results about the X5?

Lot's of Red boats for Demo/ads for 2010.....makes me feel better since I have a red boat....lol......I like the way Nitro has raised the bar inside themselves.....better product, good looks , and same or less pricing....That was a good test with the sharing of 2 fisherman on a real outing..

Is Nitro selling this rig? I don't think I've ever seen any literature on it.

The Z-6 is almost identical save for being two inches longer. This may simply be the boarding ladder. A lot of this review applies to the Z-6 as well.
BTW- It was great review that helped me out a lot.

Just wanted to make a quick update to my last post. The top cap of the X-5 and the Z-6 are virtually identical. However, the hull itself seems to be different. If you compare the front part of the hulls, the Z-6 has a wider flare like the Z-7, whereas the X-5 has a more V like shape.
Having seen both on the water, there performance is a about the same. Both take a while to get on plane, but once there, are stable and fairly nimble. Both could benefit fit from a bit more power though... :D
