    S3 hull RXT 215HP - Anyone got one?

    A lot of talk about the new 260HP RXT-X.

    But what about the new 2010 S3 hull RXT with the trusty 215HP engine and no iS?
    How do they compare to the smaller and lighter 2009 RXT with the old hull?

    I'm sure it is a great Sea Doo. I have the 260 X and can't believe how much better it turns than my old 2004 GTX 4TEC SC. The ride is better too. I don't think you can go wrong with the 215 RXT S3. The extra horsepower of the X is nice, but in my opinion, not necessary.

    Cheers

    There are pages and pages on the 260HP model but nothing on the other models.

    I would have thought that comparing a 2009 and 2010 model with same engines would be a better indication of the advances made in hull design. 5hp is not much but still the 2009 RXT-X does not compare to the 2010 model in terms of power.

    Also another great package (on paper) is the 2010 155HP GTX.


    It would be interesting to see if the advance in hull design has made enough improvement to compensate for the extra weight etc.

    A buddy has the 2010 155hp gtx,it is a 55-57 mph ski.The ride in waves is MUCH better than my 2009 rxt,i wish i would have gotten the 2010 RXT with the new hull.The 2010 RXT should be 67-69 mph,LB.

    I went to the local dealer last week and had a look at the whole 2010 S3 range and I liked the GTX colour scheme the best as well.

    The RTX is just too yellow for my liking.
