    faster. 08 rxp x or 13 rxp 260

    What ski is all around better for speed and handling? Thinking about selling the x 255 and getting the new 260 but never been on one. What do yall think is better?

    The new 260 P-X is a completely different animal from your 255 P-X. I'd recommend that you try to ride one prior to making your decision. The 260 isn't the fastest hull out there.... but damn does it rip through the chop!

    I will say I still have them both and have had lots of prior year rxps and Xs. I love them both and will say my wifes ski is a 07 RXP with a 09 RXP-X setup in it and it rips my 12p-x a new ass. I love it...
    BUT the dang 12 P-X is just so much fun to turn and play. It also loves the chop much better.

    For me it is a hard choice. If money is a object get the older ski.
    If not a new 12-13 P-X and Stage II is instantly.
