    Ski for my wife, 215is or 260is??

    I'm looking at new skis for my wife, she likes the red on white colors of the 215hp GTXis , the 260hp RXTis is only $400 more, but she doesn't care for the yellow/black.

    Shes tends to drive straight and steady, with moments of WOT.

    Is it silly to forgo HP over color?

    I already have the RXTis, and wouldn't mind a matched set, but it's her birthday present=)

    Go for the rxt. Better platform I think. Nothing wrong with matched pair.

    If it's for truly for her, your first sentence held the answer.

    Hell with what she likes.... If she is paying, she can choose. I would be worried about having a matched pair for re-sale value.... Everything is business....

    I ended up buying the RXTis, after seeing the GTXis in person, well it's a bit plain.

    I got a great trade in price on her 07 RXT, paid below msrp and got 5 years of warranty free.

    Having a matched set will be nice, and most important, she's happy with the choice!
