    RXP-X vs. RXT-X 08'

    Ok guys

    I went to the dealership this weekend and I was about to get the RXP-X 08, but then I sat on a RXT-X and I'm 6'3 and that RXT-X felt a lot better !!!!

    I saw where the T is only 23 more pounds heavier and only 9 inches longer !!!

    Has anybody rode both ? Is it that big of a diference in feel and in speed. Let me know guys.

    Thanks

    I'm 6-2 and I like the RXT better. It is slower than RXP but more solid feeling to me. Handles chop great. Just my preference for big folks!

    BTW How did you get $2000+ casino cash with 21 posts ??

    i mean, i can't image it being THAT MUCH slower with only weighing like 23 pounds more and just being a little longer

    but I agree the rxt-x felt a lot better to me

    I don't know about the casino cash, I just saw that I had some monday and clicked on the casino and just played some blackjack.

    what is the casino money all about ?

    Personally, I like the RXT-X also because it's better in the rough, and I'm always riding with passangers so it makes everything a lot easier. The speed difference is only between 1 and 2 mph. RXP-X is at 67-68 mph and RXT-X is about 65-66 mph.

    Oops, casino money all gone...

    The RXT-Xman with just stage one mods should run 72-74mph, the RXP-Xman should run 76-77, so just a little faster but I like the handling of the RXT better than RXP. I weigh 230lbs.

    Riva showed the RXTX at 67 stock and the RXPX at 68. BigBuck got a number of 71.2 mph on his gps. Obviously until the country thaws out a little more, it will be a while until more people give some input.

    gotcha, I think I'm going with the RXT-X

    I even looked at the FX SHO and that ski weighs 9 more pounds and is 2 inches longer than the RXT-X also so.....

    as of right now it looks like it is going to be the RXT-X.

    I'm getting it out the door for 12,800 so I'm pretty excited

    Hopefully I will have my T-X by the end of next week. I am taking the plunge and trading for new 3 seater. I will break her in asap and get some baseline numbers before I change the air intake, grate, prop, nozzle and thru hull as soon as it is available.

    I've spent several hours on P-X & T-X, similar speed, T is smoother and drier, better in chop, BUT the P is far more fun, handles better turns better (alot better) T is a great BOAT but P is a FANTASTIC "PERSONAL" water craft, best ski i've ever owened.

    Brent,

    Like I was telling you on the phone, the RXP is 10x more fun to ride than an RXT. The weight and length of the hull are EXTREMELY noticeable. The RXT has advantages in the chop, carrying people, and I guess being more comfortable.

    The RXP will be faster, turn harder, jump better (relative), etc.

    Get Travis to let you demo an RXP and an RXT. You DO NOT want to make a $13,000 mistake. There is a mighty big difference between the RXT and RXP.
