Thread: Buying advice

    Buying advice

    Im looking at buying two new seadoo's for my cottage. We are an active family of five and plan on towing both tubes and wake boarders. There will be lost of use around he the cottage and some distance cruising. I live in Canada so pricing is higher. I can buy 2013 machines at better pricing and with three years extra warranty.

    I was looking at rxt x260 and wake 215. While the pricing is good, these machines are 7 thousand more expensive then two gtr 215's..

    Worth the difference? I do like the S3 hall. The selection of 2013 includes almost the entire lineup.

    Comments much appreciated.

    Welcome aboard the Hulk!!!

    I would get the gtr skis.
    They are near bullet proof with proper service. They have the same stock top speed as the tx and wake.
    Keep them stock and enjoy.

    IMO the GTR is the sleeper model in the Seadoo line up. Three seater for towing, lots of power, handles great, ibr and lots of other features without breaking the bank. My friend has one and likes it a lot as do most other people that own them I have not heard anything negative about the GTR. For 7K difference I would go with two GTRs.

    GTR without a doubt.

    If your doing open water and lake work why not look at the gtx155 and a gtr. That way you get the s3hull for off shore and it will still go well with towing.

    Also add the ski pole on both..

    Thank you for all of the advice. The river does get choppy which drew me to the S3. Here is the inventory the dealer has and I could choose from.

    Still having trouble with my decision. Here are the models the dealer has in stock. As said we are going to do lots of water sports, water can get rough and I would prefer not to have the urge to trade in a year.

    Personally the wake pro and then either the gtr or rxp depending on how many seats.
