Towing tube behind RXT-X as 260
Anyone pulled a tube behind their ski? someone told me that rxt's pull tubes like shit, but i would think my as 260 would pull one pretty decent with the power and trim tabs w/vts? I was wondering what tube pulls best/length of pull rope.

read this thread for a lot of good info: http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=180026
Who ever told you that does not know what they are talking about! You are correct about having plenty of power. I listed a lot of techniques on how to pull tube(s) safely.
Just use a good quality tube rope. Check your state laws on pulling tubes, some require a spotter, some require only the number persons allowed on a ski are allowed on a tube, some don't care.
You can have a blast and still be very safe.

Hell a Gti 130 pulls a tube great.
A 260 could pull multiple tubes, a skier, a wake boarder, all at the same time.

LOL. I have a pontoon boat that weighs 3000 lbs with a 115 horse motor that can tow a 10 foot tube with 5 people on it and 9 more people on the boat. It can PLANE this way without issue.
The RXT 260 could probably tow my rig backwards while I was going full throttle the other direction.

I towed a broken down pontoon boat/ barge with a full load of people 5-6 miles down the st johns river.
The people on the boat kept telling my to slow down.
Yeah I was feeling good about helping out but that got real old real fast.
So I stepped up the pace a little and next thing I knew we were moving at a pretty good pace.
Yeah there were some hotties on the pontoon and yeah it was nice having DD's pressing on my back for the rest of the day!!!
