This implies that Scotseat don't know what they are doing, are new to this game, didn't do any expensive development, haven't tested their kit hard, and have a poor reputation.
I think that is a little unfair on probably every count. Scotseat have been making suspension seating for a long time and know what they are doing. They've probably actually been supplying suspension seats to boats for longer than Ulman - albeit their "jockey" style seats were not first to market. The fact they have developed a different approach from Ulman rather than just simply copy them, and intentionally included the lateral movement suggests to me that they are more than a couple of guys jumping on the bandwagon.
I've never sat on an Ulman and have nothing against them. I've also not sat in a Scotseat for long enough to draw any real conclusion. So much of ride quality is related to the conditions on the day, the driver and the hull I'm not sure I could try all of them on different boats and definitively conclude one was better (although I'm willing to try!).
