    2012 RXPX or 2012 FZR

    I am considering buying a new ski and was wondering what everyones thoughts were on both skis. I saw a 2012 Seadoo RXPX the other day and man it looks sick. here is my thoughts good or bad.....

    FZR known to crack tunnels and has a bad buck issue. What I dont know is what does it take ot get one to run high 70's maybe even 80?

    RXPX not sure on its issues but I assume its simular to the rxps in past right? What does it take to get it to run high 70's maybe even 80?


    What are the prices everyone is getting these skis for? 12k?

    I dont want this to turn into a bash thread of either ski just goood honest answers.

    Not to bash doos but a large part of my fzr purchase was based on the yamaha reliability record, buck issue is easily solved and tunnel reinforcement is a simple winter project.

    FZR.

    Think about this for a second. Yamaha built a light hull, put a big 1800cc motor in it, then put a S/C that only puts 6psi out.

    The motor LOVES boost, so you put a decent sized SC wheel in it, and it's low to mid 80's right off the bat. If you wanna go fast in a straight line, you ain't gonna beat an SHO

    I've owned both, a 2010 FZR with a B1 wheel and lots of goodies. Was a 79mph ski and I loved it..
    Now have a 2012 RXPX with et137 wheel it's about the same speed.
    You have to spend slightly more to get the Seadoo to the same speed, performance is very similar.
    BUT the Seadoo handles 100 times better and 100 times more fun than the Yamaha.
    I have no preference, have owned as many yamahas as i have Seadoo but the 2012 RXPX is I like any other ski on the market, the handling instantly makes the others feel very old and dated.
    Whether its on a lake, in the chop or just jumping big waves the Seadoo handles better.
    I'm certain that if you ask anyone who has ridden or even better ow ed both the will say the same. All I would say is a Yamaha is bullet proof with build quality second to none. It will be reliable but I'd rather take my chances and have fun!

    I would also take dealer quality into consideration. My buddies SHO dropped a SC gear @ 10 months old. NOT the first according to the dealer.
    We don't have a close Yamaha dealer. The Seadoo dealer is pretty good.
    My pick ~~ RXPX

    The PX is a better handling hull, HANDS DOWN! On the other hand, it's hard not to fall in love with the torque from bigger Yami motor. Put 'em together & it'd be the perfect production ski.
