    Question what muscle craft to get?

    Hi guys im looking for my first muscle craft.
    Its going to be my first ski. So i dont want a problematic ski and as maintenance free as much as possible.
    I came from a sport bikes hobby. Thats why i want a muscle ski.
    Im new and will be riding in chops and some offshore.
    I may be racing the ski in the near future so it must be considered in choosing the ski.

    I saw a pretty descent 2010 rxtx 260...
    But im asking for more options. Because i read so many failures on that ski.

    What can you suggest guys.... 2010 or newer models pls.
    thanks thanks

    Ultra 300x hands down (my opinion). I chop and ocean almost all the time. You might have to take a little extra time at the end of a salt water run weekend to clean and maintain but it's an awesome ski. If u like Yamaha sport bikes u might wanna talk to the yamaha guys they make awesome skis too

    Kawi = 300x
    Seadoo = Rxt-x
    Yamaha = FX SHO or FZS

    Those are my picks. All are good in chop (some better than others I'm sure) and all are SC'd. Look up each and see what is best for YOU.

    If you want the least amount of maintenance go with the Yamaha.

    That eliminates Kawi. Looks like you have only one option left.

    I have a 300x and an RXT X and if you are riding offshore or in the chop I would suggest the 300x. I love my RXT and have found it handles good in the chop but nothing cuts like the 300x.
