    RXT vs. Wake edition

    Do these ski's share the same hull? I assume the price difference is all the extra ski & wakeboarding stuff you get with the Wake. Would there be any real difference in the riding experience?

    no

    the wakeboaerd edition has the hull equal to the GTX so you have alittle more storage space, but the RXT is in the muscle craft section, so it all goes back to, do you want to throw money away or not????

    The RXT and GTX WAKE are 95% the same...The HOOD is different...The OPTIONS are different...The COLOR is different...

    BUT...The bottom hull is the same...The top deck is the same...The motor is the same...Everything you can buy to upgrade the RXT will work on the GTX WAKE...

    The GTX WAKE is an RXT with a different hood and a ski pylon, and optional ballast tank.....thats about it.

    Yes, the RXT and Wake Edition hulls are the same...
    If you need the wakeboard extras then get the wakeboard edition, If you don't then don't. The riding experience is the same with both.

    Anyone know what the capacity of the ballast tanks are?
    Those could make some nice extra capacity fuel tanks with the right mods.....

    Specs say it adds 200 pounds, and water weights 8.33lbs/gallon...that works out to roughly 24 gallons...

    That would be a pretty nice cruise having a 40 gallon or so fuel capacity...
    Figure a rough number of about 50 miles for 15 gallons, give or take.
    That would give you about a 130 mile fuel range...give or take...
    That's pretty cool... Until the CG finds out you converted your ballast tanks into fuel tanks....lol..

    I get 75 miles on 15 gals at varying throttle...with 42# injectors...gas mileage on the new RXT's is pretty good.
