    Difference in speed from rxt-x to rxp-x

    I am just thinking of going and getting me a brand new seadoo, but I am not sure what to get. I know I want the fastest seadoo makes but I am not sure if I should get a 2 seater or a 3 seater. I love to tear it up and go fast but I also love to pull a tube and have a little smoother ride, so I don't know what to get if I do get one. What is the speed difference and handling between the 2?

    I have a T-X, and I would say the speed difference is probably going to be less than 1mph. Now I'll probably get slammed by others, but here's my logic; The weight difference between the two, if memory serves me, is about 18lbs.
    The T-X has a bigger hull and tends to ride better in the chop. It also has 3 seats, which you will need if you want to pull somebody(you need one to ride, one to ski, and one to watch).

    The T doesn't handle as well as the P because of the hull/lengh. That being said, there is a lot you can do to the T to make it handle good, if not better than a stock P boat.

    So far, I have my T modded with the R&D peformer kit, sponsons, and nozzle, and have gone 73mph. Not bad for a 10foot boat that seats 3. My boat rides really well in the chop. I haven't ridden a P boat yet, but I did ride an Ultra 250 yesterday. I was not that impressed. It handled the chop marginally better than my T, but it wasn't that great. And, it was heavy(900lbs), and felt it. I can cruise at 55mph in 2 to 3 foot chop, which is about as fast as I could go on the Ultra in the same chop.

    So, to answer your question simply.....go with the T-X. I was in the same boat as you. I had no desire though to tow anybody, or even take 3 people. I bought the T boat because of the hull. I knew that it would handle rough water better, and the weight was only 18lbs more.

    well look at what you wrote, if you want to pull a tube and have a little smoother ride, there really is only one choice...
    unless you get one of each!!!

    Your quote says it all.....Go get the T-X. It is more versatile that the P-X.

    I was shocked this weekend. I GPS'ed my dad's RXT-X all stock with 5hrs. It went 70.5 going with the tide and 68.1 going against. It is definitely an all around 69mph ski!!!

    I'm sold on the P-X. The pump tunnel is a MAJOR upgrade in ride quality, it's glued to the water.
    Try to ride the 2 and make a choice.
    There is a big difference.
    Opinions!!!! Lots of em.
