    what is the most playful entry level PWC????

    we are leaning towards the STX15F but would like some insight to which is the most playful between it STX, GTI 130/155 or VX.

    Obviously the 15f is the most powerful.....more concerned about playfulness though....any help would be much appreciated!!!

    Personally I would go with the 15f or STX-R for entry level. 15f can get pretty advanced in a heartbeat with alot of aftermarket parts. STX-R has even more aftermarket parts. But one piece of info that is very critical, if you plan on riding in salt water, you may want something 4-stroke.

    Another good entry ski is the GTX 155 or Yamaha VX Cruiser/ Deluxe.

    15F is the only pwc made today that goes 62 mph and gets 120 miles on a tank . . . For what it is, it's a good Ski. JB

    I am a huge fan of the VXR, but I assumed he was talking about VX110 (YAM's true entry level craft). When you consider price, performance, and value in a true entry level boat it's hard to beat 15F. I don't consider VXR an "entry level" ski per se. VXR is for those who want "big league" performance without the complications / costs of artificial aspiration . . . the VXR fits this niche very well.

    I love my stx skis I find it hard to ride nearly everything else, if you can get out and ride all of them do it. You will see a huge difference between the models, im a kawi guy but you may like the doos or yamahas more. Its about what you feel comfortable on.

    I had a gti and loved it, basic little ski and could do some rad jumps. I had the 130hp the 155 is the way to go bit more grunt, they use very little fuel compared to the sc skis. I vote the gti

    GTI's are fun little ski's and those normal N/A motors last forever... GTI is good on gas and only needs 87 octane.

    Plus you gotta figure gas, oil changes, launch fees...
