    OF COURSE it won't carve as well, IT'S just a little LONGER if you haven't figured that out...

    GET THE OPAS off, and there will be NO rocking, don't forget, you're dragging a little more of that tail in the water...

    i have driven both hulls many times and I went right for the RXTX. IMO they are far more confident feeling and unless you are riding on glassy water I wouldnt even want an RXP. I know many here will disagree lol but I really dont feel the RXP have confident handling in chop/ rough riding. And with the RXTX u have VTS so its the best of both worlds

    I have to agree with canadianrxt. I had a RXP for 3 years and enjoyed it but the 3 seater is a much dryer ride and shines in the chop.

    My T-X does the same thing at low planing speeds. Just go a little faster or experiment with slight counter steering.

    And how can you go wrong when they weigh almost the same I actually think my favourite hull for handling was the polaris MSX. MY least favourite are the Yamaha VX/160/etc they are TERRRRRIBLE WHALES. GPR are fun, the small older polaris's are a BLAST, sooo much fun! I do not like the new style GTI hulls or the RXP hulls. I have basically ridden them all so i have a pretty good comparison over the years and RXT is my 2nd fav to date and again the VTS makes it a monster
