    Red face Used reverse for a brake, not too good

    I seen where a new ski has a brake that uses reverse as a brake, I needed to make a quick stop today so....
    i pulled it into reverse and gave it a quick throttle blip at speed.
    The ski promptly slowed down, dropped the nose and dove down like a submarine. I was suddenly in water up to my neck.
    While it was very effective in stopping not sure I'll try that again.

    Its a move that's getting popular lol works well with the older seadoos with a harder plastic for a reverse bucket. A lot of new ones seem to brake.

    its also a great way to injest water in a 250/260 and more than likely the new 300
