    Talking 2011 RXP-X or FZR

    Serious question! Selling my current ski and picking up a new ski when I get back from Afghanistan. My riding will be on lakes and offshore riding. I have done a lot of research but still iffy on both! Not really sure.. The reliability of the fzr verses shear pwnage of the RXP-X 255... Please some advice? Location of riding will be around Destin Fl.

    FZS if your riding more in the ocean
    Rxp X if your ride more in flat waters

    Stock vs stock I find the RXPX more fun and a blast to ride. If there's any chop it bounces around and is a wetter ride. On the FZS you don't get beat up and the ride is much more drier. Both skis have given me zero problems and I love them both. I just feel one is better suited for flat vs ocean.

    both awesome skis. 1000$ and you have a p-x doing 74-75 and since the 2011's didnt change you can prob find a nice deal on a leftover.

    You're asking in the Se-Doo section... Pee on Yamis My buddy runs the FZS, which is the same as the FZR with a different seat, don't let the salesman tell you any different. I ride long distance on my P-X and do get beat up but haven't ever been left behind, normally the opposite. Depends on what you want. I like to go fast and screw around, much more fun on the P-X. I jump on the 3 seaters and yes they are a much smother ride but it's kind of like riding a motorcycle with a fairing. Your call. I'm actually switching to a 3 seater because like I said I do long distance riding. I know I wont be happy other than riding on a long rough day. I may keep both but will end up only riding one, the one I set up with all my gear. My P-X went across the ocean to the Bahamas and last week went 800 miles in Lk Huron... Hit some 7-10' seas too.

    well if you are riding in the ocean you may want to look at the Yamaha 2011 VXR all the speed without the S/C toubles .. More up time .. If you are looking to CC race then well the jurry is out.. I suggest you arks around.. ask the pros...

    I admit my bias however i have seen many X's in the repair shop weekly. Either oat witll reqiure spare parts.. I answer anything you may ask. I have beaten and been beaten X's it comes down to riding style if you ask me. The cam all be fast can you make em steer ....LOL

    That is what I have been hearing about the X's. They seem to be not very dependable... I have a Yamaha right now and the ski in indestructible! I like the X because its smaller and is a two seater!!! The only thing about the fzr is that it’s pretty much a 3 seater. My time riding in Florida will probably be 75% bay/ocean and the rest lakes if I can find any. I really wish I could test both

    I just recently bought an RXP-X (08' model) and LOVE it. I went from an ultra 250, which handled rough water great, but in my opinion doesn't hold a candle to the fit and finish of my X. And yes they are fast for a stock machine. Put an intake grate on them and a couple of free mods and you'll be surprised at how fast they actually are. I ride mostly calm water but this ski definitely has the fun factor. I thought getting beat up a little in rougher conditions was half the fun and more of a workout... LOL

    I agree with you Ksalles but in the ocean maybe a differnt story haha... My local lake I swear is like the ocean half the time so it cant be that bad... I think I have made my mind up on getting the RXP-X 255... About how many hours can you run on the motor till it needs a re-build? Also is the x machine reliable?
