    Talking rxp-x versus gp1200r in 2 foot chop

    Hi all im new to this site. Ive had 3 ski's in the past. I currently own a 2001 Gp1200r which I purchased new and I am seriously thinking of a rxp-x. I ride in mostly 2 foot chop and wanted a new boat that will ride through it easier than my 2001. I do not want to buy a large watercraft. thanks

    The RXP-X is one of the, if not the smallest of the newer models that you'll find. The RXP hull sticks to the water much better than the GPR hull in stock form. The larger intake inlet of the RXP-X allows for even greater hook-up. If you think you'll end up wanting to go 80+ MPH then stick with an RXP, not the RXP-X.

    I own an 01 gpr with all of the mods but porting and the 05 ho pump, a 03 1300 with all mods but porting, and an RXPX with the Riva grate and "tweaked" solas prop.
    I love all 3 skis for different reasons, and for different riding conditions. My X will kill both GPRs out of the hole but in less than 1 foot chop, the 1200 will keep up in with the X and the 1300 will walk away from it. In anything more than 1 foot shop, foget-about-it, the X is the ski to be on.
    Just like what was said earlier, it all depends on what kind of riding conditions you are in and how fast you want to go. If you do some reading, you will find that an RXPX can be made to run 76+ without getting into the engine.
    I have owned GPRS since 2001 and would always have 1 on my trailer but, I love the RXPX, period.

    Why not the X to go 80+?

    Because chances are you will get thrown off and seriously injured.

    These people are out of their minds and I will ride it to prove it. I have never not once been beaten in a closed coarse race by an RXP when I was on my GPR. My GPR is an open class boat but give me a break..... RXP are not rough water boats at all. Ask anyone that actually knows.....

    Don't talk shit to me Mr. National Champion. I explicitly said 'in stock form' and I am speaking from my own experience of riding in rough water.

    look into the RXPX with a Worx intake grate...will give better hookup in the chop your riding in
