    Should I get a new 15f or used RXP

    I currently own a 12f that I wanted to sell so I could buy either a 15f or an RXP. I can get a leftover 08 15f for 6500 or I can get a used RXP for about the same price. I love the RXP and it no doubt will smoke almost any ski on the water, but it has a lot of issues and requires a lot of maintenance which I can't really afford ot fix. Now if I get a 15f, which I know is very reliable and will go hrs problem free, then I will have a brand new ski. It's no where as fast as the RXP, but if I slap an RPM kit on it, I could be knocking on RXP speeds. Let me know what you guys think.

    Sound to me like you have figured it out on your own. The 15f and $1000 (approximate rpm kit) and you will be pushing the RXP. If you really want to kick an RXP's but just challenge him in 2 foot chop. You will remain hooked up and he will be killing himself to keep up.

    +1 Take it from a next 15F Owner. You will kick an RXP's ass..

    Do you guys know how the SHO handles chop, because I would like to be able to keep up with them as well.

    15F is also a much drier ride...verses the rxp if you turn the bars your wet.

    Stock for stock a rxp and 15f are very close off theline 0-20 but of course the rxp leaves after that. In chop though not even 2 foot the rxp becomes unhooked very quick. Just make sure that the one you race does not read these forums...!!

    +1 to all of the above! RPM kit, mod the waterbox, wet pump mod, and get the bastard in some chop and show em' whos boss. sure flat water speed is all fine and dandy, but there is a reason that kawi's DOMINATE the racing scene, because we can handle the chop.

    I say go with the 15f, but I'm a little biased, as I just bought 2 last week. You can't beat it for the money!

    All the great praise on this forum, and others, convinced me that this was the ski for me, and they were right! My wife also loves hers.
