    new jetski

    I am new to the sport and i am looking into purchasing a jetski but im pretty lost.
    I Think that i want a 2 stroke but im not totally sure
    speed isnt my main goal i really am looking for something to jump with. M bud owns a rxt-x and i like it but it doesnt jump worth shit and if their is wind it can be a bitch to ride. my other freind has some older randome kawasaki and i love it cause it is a light 2-stroke.

    get a 97-99 spx or a 96 xp, they all have the same hull, and same engine,
    relatively cheap, 2 strokes , reliable, easy to work on and modify.
    fun ski to play on and jump around on, and fast!!
    ot as fast as modern skis, but plenty fast for a little ski.
    another one to look at is a 98-99 GSX with a 951 carb engine.
    even faster, only a little bigger, also good for carving and jumping. the 951 engine was more finicky, but worth it for added performance... but the SPX is a better jumper, cuz its lighter...
    both these skis weigh half of what the rxt does.
