    RXP-X vs RXT-X (top speed)

    Hey guys,
    I'm new on this forum and tried to find something about top speed on these watercrafts..
    I own a GTI 155 SE and intend to change on a RXP-X or RXT-X.
    The seller told me the RXT has better top speed. Does it proceed or not? Both are 2012.
    And another thing, to go far (about 20 miles), both are enough confortable or RXT is much more?
    Thanks!

    They both top out at the same top speed. Around 68-69mph gps.
    They are both comfortable to ride much farther than 20 miles.

    I think the t-x with the s3 hull is easier to make more speed with, at least so it seems from the results I have seen on here. Is that a fair assessment?

    This is what I have heard as well. The PX this time around was designed to stay glued to the water ,and it certainly does that very well so I imagine mod for mod the TX might have a slight top end advantage in glass conditions.

    Top speed is relative to what type of riding you do. You should base your decision that, your riding style and personnel preference.
    If you plan on modding the ski then you should think about that also. Some aren't as friendly to mods as others.

    I used to be a flat water guy. This was mainly because running a pre 12 RXP was no fun in the chop. My 06 RXP ran 80+ all day every day. I would take the 12 PX over it any day.
    The 12 PX is a great balance. The lean in style cornering is unreal fun and totally different to other skis I've ridden (which is not a lot). Urgo lock is the best thing sense they started putting 4 strokes in them and it's a chop monster (not as much as a kawi 300x).

    Tough decision for you but not a bad problem to have GL
