    2007 R12x still a wet ride?

    Hey guys! I am new to Hondas and pretty new to PWCs in general, my limited experience being with a buddie'd 2004 RXT Seadoos. I hear that the Hondas are a wet ride compared to the Seadoos, but I have also heard that the 2007 r12x had hull changes that corrected the wet ride issue. My question is, are the 2007 r12x skis dry or just drier? Thank you.

    The r is extremely dry. The f is very wet.

    I have a 2004 R12, yes they are more unstable but isn't part of the fun to be agile and for jumping waves I'll take my R12 over the turbo as I have a great hole shot with quick response for timing that wave for maximum air. Also if you take the Honda sticker off it makes it faster .....
