    Welcome to the forum!

    The RXT is a much drier ride than the RXP, but installing a bow spray deflector on the RXP makes worlds of difference.

    Jettrim has the best IMO. It hangs down over five inches and completly dries up your ride. I have tried two others --Jet trim is dry.

    LOL! too funny. welcome to the board! we heard u been lurking, but glad you are actively posting now.

    you will get all mixed opinions... i personally have an RXT that i would never trade for an RXP. i'm more into long distance rides haulin ass up the hudson river or across the ocean from long island to jersey. RXT is very dry... i'm still riding now here in NY and if all goes well i can get off the ski with hardly a drop of water on me. if i decide i wanna screw aruond and get wet then i ride hard. really depends what you are looking to do, if you want to sit back and ride real hard and fast but smoothly across mild chop, if u want to do any towing or water sprots, if storage is an issue, how many passengers...

    for me, it was a no brainer for the RXT for towing capabilities, storage, passenger capacity, rough water and ocean characteristics.

    have you ridden an RXT? i assume you've ridden justin's RXP?

    shibby yea he rode mine and hated how wet it was. we do the ocean riding but we dont need to tow anything and storgae is not the big of a deal since we have a boat. so bascially we are riding for fun and speed when water isn't to rough. if he goes with the rxp he will put the splashgaurd on im sure. i will tell him to write in here so he can post his opinion too.

    I've ridden the rxp before mods and loved it...especially the blast off the line. But I do like the smoother ride of the yamy when we are in rough water such as inlet and mixing bowel..where waves can get 4-6-8 ft at times,not quite as brave as rxpblast. So as you say smoother in rough chop, more comfortable on long runs and the possibility of towing, the rxt may make more sense for me. thanks

    Well, since you have the "P"- your dad should get the "T".
