looking at buying a ski choices 2014 GTR or 2014 RXT-X
Ok so I'm looking at buying a ski and I have watched all kinds of videos reading what I can about the 2. I still can't figure out what to do. Mainly is the rxt-x worth the extra cash? Are the hulls that much of difference?
Here is a little history and what my primary use will be.
haven't bought a ski since the waver aider so it's been some time. I have raced hairscrambles 10 years ago on 450R. been riding sleds for 17 years. Always buy x models there considering the adjustable shocks. I'm actually on my way back rite now from the UP.
So my main use will be on the Illinois river some lakes. But mainly gonna go to river jump wake and play around. Take some rides to different beaches and stuff. Not sure if I will pull any tube or skiers. But will opt for a 3 seater just in case. Will probably have some chick's riding with me so the added room will be nice.
Ok now down to the nitty gritty on OTD price
14 GTR with trailer cover tie downs 4 year warranty 11,800
14 RXT-X same way 14,800 OTD

Shoot me a PM, I am very sure I can kill that price on a RXTX!!! I do not have any left over GTR's so I can not quote you a price on that...
It may be worth your drive to see me to save some $$$$$$

More power equals more fun. Go for the RXT-X 260. Have you also considered the RXT 260 without the X package?

I ask myself that same question six months ago. For me it was between the GTR and the RXT X. GTR $11642 otd RXT X was $13700 otd. Yes the RXT is faster and more efficient hull. However for me the choice was GTR. The reason is because I've also come from a quad riding background and love the way the GTR handles it's just a blast. It has been described as the flat tracker of Jetskis. I have run a few Rivers here in Florida and it goes just fine. Lots of twisting rivers a lot of fun. But when you want to play around it gets even better. You can slap 180s nail it right back through the same line you came in LOVE my GTR

Let me clarify rxt is faster with mods. Both will hit the same top speed stock

GTR fan here, too...
Tiny will make you a smokin' deal on the RXT-X,
The T-X & GTR are just 2 different hulls - both with burn a full tank of gas in 1 hour if you ride it like you stole it, and top out at 68ish until you do something to get past the 'limiters'.

I talked to tiny he did have a great deal. My local dealer is almost as close 300 difference so gonna keep my money local. He was a awesome guy to talk to.
I'm just so not sure which route to go. 4G difference is quit a bit of money is the rxt-x really worth it? I'm not talking a loan I am paying cash not that really makes a huge difference but think when a person gets a loan it's a not a hard choice but when they take there cash it's a different feeling want to make sure I'm not just throwing the money in the water.. for some reason I just like the way the rxt looks compared to the gtr. It would be nice if someone had some pictures of both skis sitting in the water.. that could see.
