    Seadoo stability

    Hello,
    Owning a few seadoos, i realized the major diferences in their onwater stability, my 97 gs is fairly unstable, i can barely get on it or pass a side wake at idle speeds, my 95 gtx is definetly way more stable, even two people can climb on it and wakes seem to be less of a hasle. To my surprise the 06 rxp is way more stable than i expected( thinking it was another gs)

    So my question is, are the newer doo's even more stabler? Like an rxp or rxp, how about with suspension? Im considering a new pwc, and cant try any out because my dealers say its impossible ( only possible when they have an open house, with a ton of people just to ride a pwc and not to buy. ) so, s3 hull or regular, suspension or not, rxp or rxt , or gtx. Which one is more stable, and provide a "chart of stability" from 1 to 10, 10 being rock stabile.

    Thanks in advance,
    -shui

    The new RXP-X will be very similar to what you have, i believe the hull is the same? or at least similar.

    RXT/GTX etc will all be the same (all have same S3 hull), very stable.

    Thanks for the help!
    And @20footboy i think if its not the S3, hull, then im pretty sire the hulls are the same.

    And ive decided to wait for whats coming up in 2012. If not, i will look into a 2011 gtx limmited ( have a friend, hes selling it (23hours)for 7K (dammaged hull(slid on a rock, only punctured in one place no cracks whatsoever and missing storage box and handlebars)
    Which seems a fair price for me. I can basically replace and repair the damages (1/2"hole )
