For a contrasting view, I've owned three Ballistics, and yes they are harder riding than some, but the flip side of this is outstanding handling and a dry ride. We used them for charter ops and not once did anyone have anything negative to say about comfort, even in some fairly nasty conditions. That said, if armchair comfort in rough sea is your priority, buy a Nordhavn.
As for Jason, being a bit of a know it all twit, I would guess that as a successful salesman, he was simply practicing the art of mirror and matching at RIBEX
