Need help choosing next 3 seat Sea Doo
I love my old GTX and don't plan on getting rid of it. It's great for wavejumping and I love how it's so light and responds so well to my inputs, so this would be in addition to keeping my ski most likely (I have a floating dock and a lift so this would work fine)
However, I've been taking longer and longer rides, as well as going out in choppier water. I also test drove a new GTX-iS in Atlantic City at the Sea Doo test rides a few weeks ago. Reasons I want to get a newer s/c ski are:
- I understand longer rides aren't the best for 2 strokes with respect to heat buildup
- Better gas mileage/range
- Better for bigger waves since it weighs more (s3 hull vs older hull?)
- Better for carrying people (sits higher/has more mass)
- To quote Ricky Bobby, "I wanna go fast"
- S3 hull worth getting over a slightly used ski?
- Interrelated but plusses/minuses of 255 vs 260 ski?
- RXT vs RXTX (Main two I'm looking at I would assume)
- Storage size vs my current 97 GTX?
Thanks in advance!

GTi isn't really worth it in my opinion. From the 130 hp one I rode, I don't think I'd be gaining enough stability, speed etc, to bother spending the extra thousands of dollars on a new ski.
I was looking at the RXT and realized it does have cruise, even though it's not listed in the included options list at the bottom of the 2nd page of the spec sheet. The main differences I see between are that the RXTX has the adjustable handlebars, different seat, and different floor mat.

Go with the RXT 260hp! That's if you like yellow
