    What type of water will you be riding in, rough, calm, or a combination of both?

    What do you want in a ski? Does speed matter to you? Do you want to have lots of power or would you rather get a less powerful, more reliable ski that's better on gas?

    Are you looking to buy a new/newer or older ski?

    I am mainly going to be riding on a larger lake in Northern Indiana. I don't want the bottom of the line but something mid level. Been considering Sea doo or Yamaha. I was thinking of years between 2008-2010. The water does get pretty choppy as it is a pretty busy lake. From my research it looks like Yamaha is a good reliable brand. I was previously looking at sea doo gxp or Yamaha VXR.

    I would look for a Vxr. They're affordable and extremely reliable, all while providing all the speed you'll need, especially considering this will be your first pwc.

    Def grab that 2011 VXR, great color and if he maintained it right you will have an extremely reliable ski. Plus he's a lake rider, that means she was spoiled her whole life ����
