    With over 300 hours on my RXT I can easily say it's a great performer.
    Truth is, all of those skis are going to do well for you; all have some strong points and weak points; best thing to do is get out there and look at each one and test ride them all if possible. You also need to consider your own riding style and preferences. This site will provide some great research for you.

    Get the one you like the best.

    My reading has led me to believe the following-

    Top speed: RXT-X
    Reliability: Yamaha SHO
    Handling in rough water: Kawasaki Ultra

    The seadoos have GOOD reliability, maybe not the best but they are the most tuner friendly and since that motor has now been around nearly six years- there is a TON of aftermarket support and parts available both new and used.
    My vote goes seadoo all the way.

    But again, buy the one you like the best.

    Hi Guys .
    Thanx for the reply ..
    I am still on the Yama side ..
    Few years back , friend of mine worked at the shop and he was telling me that for every 10 skis they fix there is 6 sea doo !! ( i know that was few years ago and they improve ..but I am still on the Yama side..)
    Yamaha claim that the FZS is faster from 0-30mph than RXP-X ???
    And what is the difference between FZS and FX SHO ??
    thanx again .. Mike

    More Seadoo's in a shop has to do with the market the shop is in! My good friend has a pwc shop and he see's more seadoo's than any other ski also because here if you go out to the local lakes that's what's mostly out there. So don't base your opinion on that alone.

    Never thought about it like that.

    Excellent point.

    What ever you do, don't be closed minded. Do some research on all the brands and by all means, ride them all if you can.
    I was a die hard Yamaha fan and still LOVE their product but one ride on the RXPX and I was hooked. I still have trust issues with the SD but the trust problems get their ass kicked each time I grab me some throttle on the X.
