    Info needed on SPX

    Hey guys, just sold my very problematic polaris sl750 and have decided to start looking for another ski. Found a 1997 SPX for about 2300$. Does this look like a fair price to pay? Any known problems with this ski and should I stay away? Are these good for pulling towable tubes? Let me know please, I'd hate to do the same mistake twice. Thanks!

    Reliable motor, great hull design, loads of fun. It is only a two seater (or realistically a 1.5 seater). It will not be legal for towing, and can be unstable with more than one person. It is one of the most fun skis with a high power to weight ratio, but will tire if you just want to cruise.

    thats a great price if its in great condition with an aluminum trailer. +1 on the above statement.

    OK so I just went and seen it. Great looking machine but the ownwe painted the white and yellow above the water level. Did a descent job but it's really easy to tell that it was painted. He even went as far as painting the seat
    Apparently he's a paint rep and added a bunch of flex agent and he says it'll last forever but I seem to thinh he completely ruined this ski. Aside from cosmetics, seems like a great ski. Doesn't come with trailer so that makes the deal a little sour. Haven't decided yet. Gonna go look at a 1995 XP720 tomorrow. How are these compared to the SPX??

    Same riding characteristics, 25 less HP. I ride a 94 spx - same hull, 650 cc, and love it.
