    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.
