    PWI test...RXt vs Ultra 250 results

    Just got the may issue with the showdown between the two, they picked the Ultra as the o/a winner. They measured 66.86 top speed for the Ultra and 65.51 for the RXT. But in the text they say the ultra went 68? The test was at my home town of Long Beach, CA. They tested in cool temps and salt water, so maybe it pulled a 68.

    Wow! I rode hydrotoy's ultra last weekend at sea level & pulled a 67.7. I think he has a 2.5 wedge on there too. Very impressive accelleration for a big ski.

    They also said in the artical that the ultra has a ONE PIECE seat. bunch of jerks ! I winder if they even took the seat off !

    Another thing, the acceleration rate for the RXT has decreased significantly from tests they did in past issues.

    They went from publishing 12 issues a year to only 7, but the subscription price is the same. Ready to put the lock on the door?

    I guess they didn't have the extra fuel cans on the back of the Ultra.

    I think it's all about advertising dollars...if I remember correctly yoyamma's rxt is faster than any stock rxp he's ever seen, much less a kawi.

    Well at least they tested apples to apples and not apples to oranges.
