    Intake grate for choppy water/open ocean

    Hello all

    After some advice and recommendations on which intake grate upgrade will help my ski hook up better in ocean chop (if one exists). Its for a 2008 RXP-X. Any recommendations greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    I have a much much better suggestion. If you ride ocean chop update to a T3 RXP-X, the old rxp hull is useless in chop

    Yep you two Aussies have hit the nail on the head so to speak. Ive got plans in motion for buying a new 215 GTX this year but for the time being I wanted a quick fix for the 08 RXP-X. I thought it'd be worth spending a few quid to see if I can reduce the effects in chop.

    My father has just brought a brand new 215 GTX and I could not believe how well it handled in chop, which is why Im getting one later in the year.

    Retro racer - Worx it is then, cheers mate

    No not yet, to be honest the comfort and performance of the GTX was a great combination for me as these days I use it as a small boat in the ocean rather than my actual boat as its difficult to launch single handed. Is the T3 hulled rxpx good in the ocean? Whats its comfort like for long range work?

    I wanted to stay with Seadoo as thats what my closest dealer stocks

    Whats the difference between a S3 and T3 hull for ocean riding? Which would you recommend?

    Cheers

    If you want to stick with Seadoo I would suggest you do not do a thing until you at least test ride the T3. For me and my riding style there is no other Seadoo that comes close in the chop. It's a totally different ride to the old rxp. Long distance I like it as you can lock your legs in and not get thrown around as much if you don't want to stand.
    The T3 is so unique I think its personal preference, that's why I asked if you had tested one.
