    2012 rxpx 260 or 2011 Rxtx as 260 ???

    Hi guys, selling my 85 mph 2005 rxp for a newer machine. I am torn between the 2012 rxpx or rxtx as. I am just a rec rider with performance in mind. I really like the way the new rxpx looks and am a huge fan of Ergolock seat, but am looking for a machine that can handle the chop. Recent reviews claim the new t3 hull is great in the chop, but how great compared to the s3? I am hoping that the Rxtx with a few mods can be faster than a regular rxpx, but am not looking to modify big this time, expecially for warranty. Also am looking at a 2011 Rxtx as 260 with 95 hours, it's for sale at 14000$, is that a good deal?

    My buddy got a NEW 2012 RTX 260 for $12,800. There is a dealer in WV that has one for $11,800!

    The AS is a great boat.....But that price is OUTRAGEOUS. I paid 14,000 for mine BRAND NEW with extended warranty. IMO that boat should be priced somewhere in the neighborhood of 9-10K.

    Jsiouan, thanks for the hijack, lol. I am in Canada and the msrp on the Rxtx As is 18 plus tax and trailer. so up hrs it's decent I guess. As far as price, maybe i'm asking the wrong crowd, but for the comparison, what u guys think???

    Honestly, the new PX is cool.....However, I wouldn't trade my AS for one of those.....

    I just bought my 2012 RXT 260 IS which has the suspension just like the AS only it is computer controlled. A few more features than the AS too. My buddy has an AS and other than the intake grate being better I cant see the difference. Anyway just bought mine last Friday 14,400 brand new 2 year warranty. I live in Maine so Canada not that far away He paid 15,400 for his same warranty. I thnk that price used is way to high, but it sounds like new they are higher as well up there. Remember the suspension on the AS and IS makes it more expensive than just a 260 RXTX with none

    Yea, we get ripped off here, but I looked at the dealer cost and it's around 15.5 . I thought the AS was the top of the line? So rxt over the rxp?
