    Yamaha vx cruiser vs. Kawasaki 15f

    I am a first time buyer and I can't decide which would be the best ski for me. I was looking at the 2009 yamaha vx cruiser and the Kawasaki 15f. I was looking for some feedback on which would be the better pick.

    Welcome to GH.

    well, this is the How to section so your thread will probably be moved.

    As for your choice, both are great rec skis. I think that the Kawi has room to grow if you plan on any upgrades. If not, the VX seems to be the ski of choice for rental companies everywhere I look. Im guessing cost vs reliability are factors there.

    VX 110's are dogs. The 15F will be just as reliable as they yamaha, you can do a few mods to get it to mid 60's, the holeshot on the 15F is increadable! I'd get the Kawi, and don’t look back! If you can afford a brand new one do that. If not, you can find used low hour Kawi's for a good price. I've got 161 hours on mine, and have changed the oil a couple times, plugs once, and pump bearings. Other than that it runs EVERY time I take it out! Raced it a few times, ran some closed course races as well. It’s a really good ski for the money!
    VX 110's are slow. Like the 12F…The 15F will be a little more of a performance ski.
