    '06 GPR vs '06 RXP- Need Everyone's Opinion

    My friend is looking to buy a watercraft so i told him he needs to do some research and find out which one is best for what he's looking for. All I am asking for is an unbiased comparison between the two. The good and bad sides of both ski's. He want's a jet ski to just go out and have some good ol' fun and from what he told me i think he wants to go faster than stock. Instead of giving him just my personal opinion, i'm a little biased, i would like for everyone to chime in on this and voice their opinions. Thank You.

    I personally like both. It looks as if the GPR can be modded much cheaper.

    Hey Alex,

    I tried as hard as I could to convince myself to buy an RXP. My friend is a dealer of both Sea Doo & Yamaha. I took an RXP to the Sebastian rally last year and rode it all weekend with the intention of buying it. I sadly returned it on Monday because the thing nose hunts so badly on chop or boat wakes. It literally almost broke my wrist on two separate occasions crossing boat wakes at speed. I later bought my 5th GPR (06) and currently have it running just shy of 70mph with nothing more than a plate and grate. Hope this helps. The RXP was quick and some seem better than others about nose hunting but you just can't go wrong with a GPR.

    catch 20 here.........The RXP is sea-doo's greatest invention to date, while it's yamaha's greatest headache.

    Sea-doo spends 100x what yamaha does in advertising and marketing also. That is why EVERY ski is a freakin 'sea-doo' to the general public, no matter what kind it is.

    You see - sea-doo has the right idea for an engine with the wrong damn hull while yamaha has the best hull ever in history with the wrong motor in it.

    It's like Stevie Wonder cracking blind people jokes.....

    Speakin of general public. I'd guestimate that 90% of the riding public, just want to throw 2 skis on the trailer and go to the water. In that light, the RXP is a far better choice. Add a family, and it even becomes a wider gap.

    GPR is daddy's hot rod. Pure and simple. Corvette style ski.

    One big thing to think about is the price of gas... It's not going down much any time soon if ever. The GPR will drink gas. The RXP would be a bit more economical.
