    INFO on the RXT 260 as Please

    Guys, I am gonna buy a new ski finally. Two shoulder sergurys latter and I feel better. Just not P-X ready. I rode the P-x when at Mini MB last year and it is to aggressive for my shoulders right now. I feel I need a RXTX. Anyway I found a RXT as 260 ands wanted input on it. Is it a good ski? How much slower will it be than a RXTX. I am looking at both the RXTX ans RXT-as. The AS is a bit more cash, but a great price and dam near new. Anyway please shoot me your thoughts.

    RXT260 isn't any slower than an RXTX.

    Nick he is talking about the suspension model RXTX (aS).
    Austin, the aS is much more difficult to work on due to having to remove the top deck for even some minor repairs. I do believe the aS weighs a bit more

    That is what info i need. I believe I am leaning to the 260 T-X as I dont want the extra wieght or hassel of working on it. As we know i will not leave it alone.

    Exactly. You will be very pleased with the non-suspension RXTX 260 or you can save even a couple more bucks and get an RXT 260. Same hull, power, and performance of the X and even a couple things that the X doesn't such as cruise control and a boarding step

    ?????What? The Rxt has cruise and boarding step over the TX? Hmmm, my dealer has a rxt 260 for around $10,000 brand new.

    I like the steering and sponsons, but is it worth the cash? hmmmm! thanks and keep it comming

    Yep. . One thing is that the new model TX (2012 and up) has the pump mounted to the shoe/hull where the rxt260 is still mounting the pump to the rideplate. The TX does have the cooler steering and the adjustable sponsons but that can be remedied. The only big difference is the pump

    I made up my mind with one issue. Bingo dingo. Pump mounted to the shoe. Bam. I worked on two older t-xs with that dang rideplat , pump set up and IMHO it is junk.
    So that was easy with your help RXTX 260, 2012

    There were actually two versions of the RXT this year. The difference was the mounting of the pump. We had 6 RXT's with the pump mounted to the shoe. The 17ca and 17cb have the pump attached to the shoe. The 17cs had it attached to the rideplate.

    I love my RXT-X. It is the nicest ski I have ever owned. It drives nice, handles the rough stuff well and is very dry. I would recommend it.
