Don't kid yourself- Petit calls Vivid a "hard ablative" but in practice there is nothing "hard" about it. It comes off the boat just as easily as any other ablative.

I have no specific recommendation, I'm just saying that Vivid isn't something different or special. If bright colors are important, drop the big spank for a Vivid bottom. Otherwise, I say just buy any of the major manufacturer's copolymer ablative products and you'll be fine.
