    Spark 2up Vs. 3 up - advice please

    i already have a RXTX 260, which i love. I want to get a Spark for the family to play alongside the boat and RXTX. I am looking for something to spin around and jump on smaller waves, but can expect to sometimes take a passenger. Do i get the 3 up or 2 up?

    The actual difference between the two is minimal but if you plan to have a passenger the 3 up is the way to go.

    Having had both- Just realize the seat on a RXT-X is about a 9-10 and the seat on a Spark is about a 3???

    We have ridden 2 up on our 2 up spark. It is t ideal, but doable. The best bang for the buck would be a 2 up 60 hp and tune it. The three up is only available as an HO, so is considerably more

    You suggesting a spark is uncomfortable? Should I spend a few grand more and get a GTR? (A few grand more is not an issue)

    Seat is great on the lake racing, jumping, your mostly standing, I never notice it even sitting. The 5-6 hour destination trips thats when I feel it. Ive had two full grown adults on my 2up,450lbs+ and it handle very well.

    Your not going to get the light weight and maneuverablity on an other ski. You have the high proformance ski this is your next step you wil NOT be disappointed.

    I test rode a Spark and sold my GTR and I've been waiting to put in an order for a couple Sparks from the 2015 batch.
