15f vs RXP
Just wondering how you would compare the two, which one is more enjoyable to ride, faster in stock form, and why would you pick one over the other, if you want to know my type of riding mostly recreational, i live in canada and here in the great lakes there is always a little chop rarely glass, but want peoples opinions on both.

The RXP is way faster out of the hole and on top end. The 15F is more agile for the tight in stuff. The RXP handles choppy water better. That being said both can go off shore easily. The RXP will eventually cause more servicing issues.

It does in the ocean I ride on, I've beat myself up on the 15F while the RXP seems more comfortable. I personally cannot cruise as fast in a straight line when wave limited. Maybe it's my fat ass but I have to slow down before the RXP. Don't get me wrong I prefer my 15F, it's just the RXP walks all over it in the Atlantic, both accelerating and for top end. My advantage is in the close in dualing and handling. I'm just being honest with myself and still feel I made the right purchasing decision for reasons other than top speed and acceleration. The 15F seems more like a pancake skipping the waves and landing the wrong way-it just doesn't cut through it as sharply as the RXP.

Stock for stock? Doubtful. We are talking rider ability and type and size of waves here. Too many variables to answer truthfully.

I owned a 07 215rxp
Yes the RXP is faster than a 15F everywhere on glass! BUT
My RXP was the biggest piece of shit on any water bigger than 8'' ( inch ) chop/ripples
mind you the 15F isnt the greatest in the rough either, But is slightly better in my rides
I rode with guy's on VX cruisers , 15f, Fx160ho,gpr1300, and my bucket of crap RXP was so far behind due to the hull design it wasnt funny.( in ocean rough water)
even had swapped skiies during the same ocean ride and the result was always the same
FX in front, vx ,gpr, 15F, then way back my seapoo
thats my finding anyways
thats why I sold it after 3months

If they were both in chop would the 15f keep up with the rxp?
I wonder what the answers would be if posed in the seadoo section? You could then maybe take an avearge of the two and come out with better accuracy?
