Towing pole addition to an RXT, how to?
Spent the weekend on the water, great fun.
Towing a tube around and hooking up to the hook on the back of the ski works of course but the rope is too close to the water. Is there a way to add a towing pole like i have seen on the wake edition to aid in raising the rope a bit?
2005 rxt with 70hrs

You can order the wake pole setup and install on any SeaDoo.

Just order a quality wake pole set up. I've seen some sub par metal poles that have rusted and fall apart. Get 1 that's not going to rust..
You can install on any doo...

Ok. So, after some google searching I came across the ski pylon but it keeps saying that it is only for wake board and not to be used with tubes, I assume the strain is too great on the pole? Is that the reason? What do you guys think? Should I add some kind of floaties to the rope, maybe that will work as improvement to the towing overall ( rope grabbing water(extra friction) and eye splashing). I mean the rope is made of nylon so it floats already.

Oem seadoo should be good.
I know they say no tubes but I've seen plenty of tubes being pulled by the wake pole. Seadoo also tells you not to jump the 4 tecs in waves...

I've installed an OEM SkiDoo pole on my 2006 RXT. I do pull tubes but have added a stop so the pole only comes up halfway.
It works just fine. Just don't get nuts with the pulling and you will be good.
