Looking at Buying A Seadoo
Hello all looking at buying a Seadoo, I pretty Much Nailed down being 6'2 230 That the rxt will be the most comfortable for me. Im a little confused on what to get. I see the very new one is a rxt 260, But the rxt-x 2008 255? I want something with easy upgrades or more bang for buck for speed. Im even kicking the idea around buying one that is already upgraded. Im thinking used is my direction and being as I dont know how mch usaged I will get My budget will be around 8,000 give or take a few thanks a Bunch Tim

I'm 6'4" and my RXT-X 260 is very comfortable for me.

If you are looking to do any serious mods, or increase the speed beyond 69, the 2010's RXT-X 260 is not going to cut it as the only way is with new ECU or reflash= BIG $$$$$. The RXT-X 255 can be modified a lot easier. as far as stock performance goes, they are almost equal. I've raced a frieds 255 with my 260, and top end and hole shot are side by side. The hull on the 260 is 100 times better than the prior hulls.
The only problem with buying used, is that you never know what was done to the ski. Like YoYamma said, there are still left overs out there. not as many as there used to be, but they can be found for a small amount above your budget.

I've bought several used skis and you can get great deals that way. I wouldn't buy anything used and modified though, only totally stock if it's used and look for low hours. I've been able to find skis with under 10 and 20 hours. Talk to the owner and you can get a good idea of what you're getting into. Original owner is best.
If you're going to do mods, then RXTX 255 or RXT is the way to go.
