    Traction mats shrinking...

    Has anyone had the mats shrink after a while? Mine suck! They have shrunk atleast 1/2'' all around leaving a dried glue substance. Seadoo said they would replace them, but whats the point if they shrink again in another week.. The guy at the dealer seemed familiar with this problem and gave me the feeling its a common problem. Do any of the aftermarket ones hold up better?

    join the club...... i've had my RXT since April.... so maybe you can imagine how much mine have shrunk and how f'ed up the seadoo lettering on the back looks from alot of movement.... they shrank, there's glue all over, they look as if they are pelling up on the edges.... but for the time being they still work and will wait it out jsut a LITTLE bit longer to see if Seadoo rectifies the situation.

    Our RXT is much worse than the RXP. One more weekend in the desert sun, and I think they'll peel right off. BRP quality at its finest. Maybe they recall them and upgrade to something better.

    For years it was the hard plastic riveted mats that buckeled, got deformed and offered no traction. Now they finally go to a better traction material yet they pick one that is not sunlight resistant. Bunch of dopes...all they needed to do was buy the proper material used by Hydro-turf and there would have been no problems. Maybe they evidentually will, 10 years from now !!
    If anyone wants to go the HT route we get $60 for RXP and GTX/RXT mats.
