Video Questions Sea-Doo Brake's Effectiveness
This one is pretty interesting. An "independent consulting firm" has released a video questioning the effectiveness of Sea-Doo's braking system.
I think they make some valid points. Problem is, there are enough gray areas to also make me question the impartiality of the test.
See what you think...

I've only ridden a demo, but I played with the brakes a lot.
He really doesn't look like he is really slamming the brake. If you hit full brakes, you get wet. It sprays right into your face. There is a short pause between applying the brakes and when they kick-in, but they kick in pretty hard and fast when it happens.
I never played with the off-throttle steering but my '06 GTX won't steer anywhere near that good off-throttle.

That video would have been better if Rob had some of the Hooters girls with him!!
But I think the brakes will be o.k for low speed docking, any high speed avoidances should be done with turning and throttle.
