    Smile A slight change of plans...

    I had planned on racing the 300x some this year, but, as the title says, we have changed plans. This weekend, I got a new 2015 STX-15F this weekend and will race it, instead.
    After a couple hours of seat time on this thing, I love it. The straight line performance was good. Much better than what I expected. It pulled pretty hard up to a top speed of 66 mph on the speedo. What I really like about this ski, though, is the handling. It bit hard through the turn and was super easy to stay in control through the turn.
    I haven't decided for sure yet, but I may put the 300 back to stock for now and get back at modding it when I step up to racing it. Click image for larger version.

    Dreamometer lying to you. Tops out 61/62. Love the new color and the 15F is a great ski. Alls you need is a little rough water and you have same speed as new VXR/S.
    I've ridden in 3-4 foot chop, goes right where you point it with no surprises.
    Beautiful ski. Congrats & Good luck.

    Yeah, I figured it was. I didn't have my phone on the 15F and I really don't like swapping it from one ski to another across the water. just too much to go wrong. lol.
    Yeah, I loved how predictable it was in the rough water. It'll be VXR speed before long.
    Thanks!
