    Welcome aboard the Hulk!!!

    I've had some I S and A S skis and they ride like they are on air. Very smooth in the worst riding conditions.
    The only downside is when it comes to mods or accessing the inside of the hull.
    The top deck is a bit of a pain to get loose if you doo your own wrenching.

    Welcome to the best PWC forum on the planet!

    As wotxxxsd said, others have complained about access difficulty. The other problems with the suspension models is the extra 180-195 pounds of stuff, holding back performance. If you ride exclusively in the ocean and can accept these issues go for it. If you ride inland waters, I would stick with the standard T-X.

    Most people on this forum modify their skis for better performance and do their own maintenance, both can be difficult at best with the suspension models. There is more knowledge here than you can imagine. Use the Search function and read through the "how to" section.

    good luck

    be careful when using you legs as suspension if you plan on going over 70. I nailed a 2ft wave at 70 something and hyper extended the main tendon going down the left side of my leg into my foot. Have to use this BS steroidal gel and wrap my ankle now. Might have to go under the knife if it doesn't get better.
