    2011 GTI 155 vs RXT-X 260 iS?

    I just went to the seadoo demo days...

    I tested the X-iS vs the GTI.....on a lake and found I had more fun on the GTI.

    The X seemed like driving a disconnected/bloated caddy and the GTI was like driving a BMW....TheY said the GTI was 100 pounds lighter and had a different hull....

    Anyone else find this? Or was it because I was on a lake?

    The one that you enjoy the most is the best - simple as that.

    I agree that the smaller rental GTI's in savannah felt a lot more playful than the used gtx i bought shortly after. Maybe it was the fact that i drove the rentals like i was trying to break them, or it was my first time riding a jet ski.

    ROFLMAO!!!!!
    the iS does have an "isolated" ride-and it takes some getting used to. If you have a bad back, or ride in some choppy conditions, it works very well(i did a ride report on one a couple of years ago-you can search for it). the top speed of the gti is less than 60mph, fyi. but, if it's in your budget and you like it, then go for it.

    iflyems, you sold me on the vxr Yamaha. Now just trying to sell it to my wife. I will have to get 2 of them. $20,000 plus is allot to invest with gas prices being so high.Thanks for the help. I just don't want to buy them not be able to ride them just a few of times a year. My season is 4 maybe 5 month. Thank again for your time. Sorry for hijacking this thread.

    You want some "sticker shock"?? Go look at the price of the new Seadoo RXT-aS.....or, the Kawasaki 300LX. Both, well over $14,000!!! Not including Tax or a Trailer....yikes!!!!
