    The FZ is the only 2 seater performance ride, right?

    On most brands, the 3 seater is what carries through the rough stuff. Having said that, the FZ is only 3 inches shorter than a 2 seater.

    Does that mean that the 2 seater cuts through the rougher stuff the same as a 3 seater?

    Thanks,

    Mark

    If you are looking for a good ride, or to "cut through" the rough stuff. The best Yamaha option is the 2012+ FX hulls..

    You know, I kind of discounted the RXP-X because as a 2 seater, i was thinking it wouldn't do good in the chop. Perhaps I need to look back into it.

    Prob the biggest variable is whether you will mostly have a passenger, or be flying solo. Most all of your choices can do the job, depending on whether you choose to ride standing or more aggressively.

    IMO the 12+ FX, a RXT-X, or a 310 Kawi will all do the trick for riding big/hard with a passenger. But the FX is the only one that can be just as fun in the smooth or on the single riding days.

    We own a 13 FZS and a 15 RXP-X. The ride of the RXP-X is much better and more forgiven.

    I actually made a post today because I spent the day playing with just that... a RXP-X and a 310X. I was REALLY surprised how stable the RPX-X was in the rough water. IMO, one was as stable as the other.

    Do you not recommend the FX in the rough?

    I want it all...lol, good in chop, I can play on it and has good top end....LOL.

    RXP-X will be the most playful/throw-able of the bunch, it's the smallest and lightest, the others are 3 seater.
