    09 RXT-X 255 or 11 Yamaha VXS?

    Hey guys, need some help here...

    I can get a 09 RXT-X 255 with only 3 hours on it for 11,000

    or

    I can get a 11 Yamaha VXS (with full warranty) for 10,550

    I run in freshwater on an inland lake. I use the ski mostly for tubbing and a bit of messing around on it here and there (top speed, small wake jumping)

    Help?

    vxs insane fuel eco for a ski that fast.

    rxt-x a ton of room for improvement.

    If you are going to leave it stock and happy with 68mph vxs all day long because it burns almost 1/2 the fuel of the rxt-x at wot.

    If you a speed junkie like most of us here RXT-X

    Yes, the T-x uses the fuel, but put a R&D grate on it and the fuel cunsumption gets better by a 3rd. Yep the stock grate is like a shovel and makes it eat the gas.

    Also the TX is a better rough water ski and you get alot more bells and whistles, reverse and trim.
