    stx15f known problems?

    Hey guys, haven't been on here in a long long time. I am helping my mate buy a sit down, he doesn't really care whether it's supercharged or not. I have basically said, the best ski for acceleration/towing/fun/fuel/money and 3 seater would be a 15f.

    I have heard nothing but good reviews about them, and have also heard some owners not so happy they paid a lot more for a supercharged ski that accelerates slower then a 15f haha..

    I'm just looking to see if their are any known problems with 15f, I heard in 05 or 06 they changed some things regarding the engine, the source from that information wasn't 100% trustworthy.

    Also if someone has any other ski suggestions throw them in!

    Thanks guys

    Lest we forget!

    Yes. There are problems that rear an ugly head in most designs. I've a 2010. So I have read posts such as fuel tank and CPU issues from older models. It's best to research any post and make a judgment call on your own findings. IMO... the stx15 is an excellent performer.

    Its one of the most reliable and steady performing skis out. Go for it.

    Not really. I had a 2008 and the only issues I had with it were the fuel gauge being so ungodly inaccurate, how the ski would just plow the water because the bow sat so low with a full tank, and how unstable it was with passengers. Mine was also terrible on gas for some reason, but I never figured out why. They're generally great on fuel in comparison to other skis.
