    Looking at buying a new ski need advice.

    Well, I am looking at buying a new ski. I would like some input. I am looking for a three seater, looking at f12X, RXT, and a 250X.

    Not very familiar with any of them other than the RXT since I work on them. They are an alright ski and look like they are built pretty sturdy, with not many major problems I've seen yet.

    If I were in the market I'd hold out another year to see if Yamaha is gonna step up and update. I'm hoping they come out with a stock supercharged tripple, and hopefully drop some damn weight!! If anyone can do it, yamaha can.

    But really the only good way is to see if you can get out on each of the models you're interested in and see which one you like the best. In reality they are all sooo close to each other anymore, it's says more to buy the one that looks the best to you.

    I like to choose ergonomics and the type of riding style I do.
    I almost purchased the Ultra this year as it was the most comfy and handled the chop better than any PWC I'd ridden to date, including my GTX and Matrix.
    The only thing that held me back is the constant rumors I keep hearing.
    BRP will add the HP to be King of speed again.
    Yami has their new monster for 08
    and Honda will make them ALL look silly.
    The Honda one has me the most intrigue because I say it's the least to happen BUT my bud who told me this is also the one who stated the Ultra would be here this year when all others were saying "not this year".
    If you can wait I'm also thinking 08 is the year for the wars.

    It's certainly economical and you can get a killer deal on one.
    If something new comes out in the Honda line you may just be bummed??

    Here is the best deal I found within a 150 miles from the house.

    New 06 Aquatrax f12x for $8600, with $500 worth of acessories or maintance (Honda website permotion)

    What do you all think. Even if honda comes out with something new I would wait a couple of years, just to make sure they have worked out all the bugs, by then it will probley be up-grade time for one of the Polaris. I had to ride the Doo for the biggest part of the Holiday weekend and hated it, so it has to go!!!!!!
