    Mark we all start at wanting 75 and the fever grows If he's not planning on running CC racing, I would recommend the good 'ol faithful RXP.. I can chop my throttle, run 80 and do whatever else I want to and I've never not once felt like my RXP wanted to throw me off.

    Go with what you know..We cant tell him what ski to buy but we can give him the information to help him deside which one is best for him and his riding style..You already know about the X-boats bucking issue..That should be enough to help make a dicition...

    WE JUST RIDE FOR PLEASURE AND RACE AMONGST OURSELVES,BUT ITS ALLWAYS ON THE SEA AND CAN BE CHOPPY,75 ON THE SEA CAN LAUNCH YOU BIG TIME,IF YOU HIT A WRONG WAVE,IVE TASTED SEAWATER A FEW TIMES,WE ONLY EVER GET 75 ON THE BESTEST OF BEST DAYS,SO TUNING PAST 75 WOULD BE EXPENSIVE AND RARELY USED,BUT......

    KEEPS YOU ALIVE,RIGHT ON THE EDGE JUST......ONLY WAY TO RIDE, SOMETIMES WE GET LAKE RIDERS WHO COME DOWN FOR THE DAY ON FAST MACHINES AND THE GUYS GET DUSTED EVERY TIME,EVEN IF WE SWAP BOATS,THE CHOP AND TIDE PULL THROWS THERE BALANCE OUT,SO 75 IS ENOUGH ON THE SEA IF YOU GET MY DRIFT.....I THINK
