    Question Need help deciding - Honda F12X or Kawasaki STX-15F?

    I've been looking for an used, low hour ski that will not break the bank.
    I've found the following two options but since I'm new at PWCs, would like opinions on what to choose:

    Option 1: 2002 Honda Aquatrax F-12X turbo 65 hours mint condition with trailer $4500.

    Option 2: 2006 Kawasaki STX-15F 12 hours, like new, with trailer $5000. Extended warranty to 2011.

    I will use the ski just to ride with the family (2 children or 1 adult), eventualy pull a tube.

    What are the pros and cons of each? Any opinions?

    Thank you!

    I have owned a 15F own a R12X & F15X & ridden the F12X a fair bit. As much as I love my Honda's, I was impressed with my Kawi. The Kawi is good for towing, but change the ride plate & fit new sponsons.

    The Kawi sounds like the better deal by far.

    Kawi is slightly heavier on fuel & not as stable as the Honda

    Either way you have picked 2 good skis.

    Than you for your opinion. I think I will go with the Honda. I turned out that I was able to lower the price to $4,100 and the Kawi owner wants $5,500 because of the extended warranty.

    Patrat in a quick race to 60, what would win based on your experience?
    A R12X or the Kawi 15F?
