    bought a new vxs and i have a question.

    my wife and i have had a pair of gpr's for a year now and we decided we like the skis better then our boat. last week we traded our boat on a 2011 vxs so we could use a ski for tubing with our kids. we took it out yesterday, along with my 1300r. we did a dead stop race and she pulled me by 5 lengths within 3 seconds. my gp1300r has a stage 2 riva and runs well. can someone with experience tell me if this is to be expected? are the 4 strokes just that much better?

    i checked my ski out completely when we got home, and no issues.

    at this point, im ready to either do a conversion or sell both gpr's and buy another 4 stroke. i kinda like the 2 stroke ski for it's size and weight. i enjoy wrenching on them also. i just want some opinions from guys that have experience on this comparison.

    thanks

    VXS is strong but 5 ski length's just sounds like wayyy to much.

    exactly my thought. even if i am off by a length or two, she pulled me so hard i had no chance of seeing her face. only the back of her head.(gotta be a sexual innuendo there). is this normal or is my ski off?

ID:	255999 this is my ski and the only dif is that mine has the rear step it pulls hard should keep up to gp's 1300 & 1200r should pull you out of the water.

    The new skis hook & they hook fast. Do you have anything done to your GPR?

    OP most GPRs are a pig out of the hole, especially with out the Jetworks mod. I bet if you went from a roll the GPR wouldnt do so bad.

    Do a search on Jetworks mod in the FAQ and how-to-do section

    With all that, you should be eating the VXS' lunch.
