well...if I get all A's (senior year) this year my dad said he will buy me a ski. Tho I love all the new technology on the iS models, I just cant see me playing around on one of those as much as I could on an RXP-X. And if there are left over RXP-X's from this year next year, then it would be silly not to buy a left over. I dunno, My Aunt has been having some issues with her 06 GTX and all that technology and safety stuff (brakes etc.) may just real her in

I"m sticking with my '07 RXT too. If anything I would like to get an RXT-X, but that's it. I like the all the technology that these skis have now like the cruise control and the wake zones and the brake Idea sounds cool. I don't think the IS skis are going to get a lot of buyers from people like us because most of us on here don't want a large cruiser style ski. The GTX buyer is different then the RXP buyer. For people that want comfort, a lot of storage, a bunch of features and don't mind giving up some speed and handling to have all that it's a good ski. The people that want to go fast and work on there own ski are still going to buy the rxp,rxt and the X skis. It is nice that Sea Doo has that diverse of a line up. They have something for everyone. I can think of some people I know that are older and looking for something to just be able to cruse on that still has power and don't mind spending 15k for it. I don' know a lot of theses people , but a couple. For the rest of us. We still have are Ps, Ts, and Xs.

I'll be buying in '09... I think the IS is out for me... just too big. if I was doing alot of offshore stuff I would consider it though.
I'll either do a PX or an FZ this year... leaning to the Yamaha just because I've never owned a Yammie ski and would like to change things up a bit.
Still not decided though... the PX is just so easy to mod to the mid 70's.
Can't wait to see stock speeds on the FZ's.

"65" is the magic number decided by the US Coast Guard and mandated upon all OEM factory-built craft. Yamaha especially is aware of this and wants to play within the government's rulebook.
Of course, pay attention to what R&D Performance is accomplishing out in Havasu with an '08 SHO (near-74mph) with a stock ECU. All of that stuff bolts right onto the FZR and FZS.

I have heard that the FZ's will have a mile or 2 per hour on the SHO's out of the box... I guess we'll see.

I wanna know how quickly we can modify our skis for the electronics to allow for the automatic reverse, cruise control, and other stuff from some of these newer models.
