    2013 GTR 215 or 2013 RXP X 260

    I am trying to decide between either one of these skis I'm interested in both but I not to sure what one too get it will be my first ski. I will be mostly using just to have some fun go fast and some towing. I'm more looking at the rxp but unsure just wondering your opinions.

    thank you.

    the gtr is a 3 seater and would be more suited to towing and family activities.

    depending on local rules you may only be able to legally tow with a 3 seater.

    however I still tow with my rxp with good results

    I guess the questions you need to ask yourself .... will I have or want to a 2nd rider of size (200 lbs +) and how stable would you feel on the RXP. Also if mainly speed & churning up the H2O, without 2up, then RXP might fit the bill. Last what is the $$ for each one and is the difference enough to sway you one way or the other? Good Luck... and welcome to the Hulk

    90% of my riding is with a passenger, the RXPX handles it just fine. It may not be as nimble with a heavy passenger, but you wouldn't want to be running hard with a passenger anyway, as they won't feel nearly as secure as you do. Having said that, if I wanted to tow someone I would be forced to get the GTR, as having space on the boat for your the person being towed is a legal requirement here. The fine is relatively large and it doesn't appear that they are lenient at all in issuing that ticket. Best to check your local regulations.

    for a first ski I recommend the gtr 215
    the rxp is more of a race (aggressive) ski than the gtr
    also I would never recommend a 2 seater for a rec (tow) ski
    after a while if you feel you want more power the gtr can easily be tuned up to the 260+hp

    Standard RXT. Want more power just plop in the 127 wheel and still have a lot less spent than the X model.

    The px really isn't a beginner ski.

    The RXT is not a newer hull. It came out in 2009/2010 while the GTR hull came out in 2011.

    Also my stock GTR is slightly faster than my friends stock 2010 RXT-X 260 in flat water and 2 foot chop. We ride on Lake Huron and Lake Erie.
