    Loving My 13 RXT-X

    Looking like the summer is coming to a quick close here in WNY so I jumped on the opportunity yesterday afternoon to put some more time in on my 13 RXT-X that I picked up in July.

    The more I ride this machine the more I love it. The hull is great in the choppy water we typically have here on Lake Erie. And then when you get on flat water the acceleration and speed in sport mode, even on a completely stock machine is incredible. Yesterday I was on the ski for about 3 hours straight, the seat is so comfortable and with the hull design it doesn't beat you to hell like some other skis.

    My favorite changes over my 05 RXP besides the additional power and size of the ski is the IBR and adjustable handlebars for riding standing up. The brake is great, especially when coming in to the dock. And what a difference being able grab the bars and still see the speedo when standing up, much more comfortable. Tour mode is great when you have a passenger and don't want to launch them off the back of the ski. And I like being able to put it into ECO mode, much better on gas and perfect for when you just want to cruise the lake.

    She's got a whopping 18 hours on her now and I've loved every minute of them!!!!

    I have to agree. I sold my 08 Tx and picked up a 13 Tx earlier this year. Although mine is not stock, ( neither was the 08 ) it is head and shoulders above the 08 model.

    Trust me on this, mix 50/50 distilled water and white vinegar in a spray bottle. After ride, spray and wipe down with micro-towel.

    Will it make the ski smell like vinegar all of the time?
