    Sponson noise on RXT 300

    Just picked up my new ski and notice during the turn when the sponsons come in contact with water there is a strange noise coming from them. Going straight no issue. I don't have this issue with the RXP 260 which is the same design. Sponsons are set for sport for both ski's. Is this normal and if yes why RXP 260 does not do this? I checked the bolts and they seem tight. Called up dealer and they don't know anything. Thanks

    I have this same noise on my 2011 rxt (sounds like grinding i assume too?) Sometimes it does it, sometimes it doesn't do it.
    It's just from the water hitting the sponsons at an odd angle in my opinion. Similar to a pouring rain pounding on a window.

    Yes, grinding noise.

    Don't have this issue on my RXPX which has the same hull and same setting for sport. Even my wife notice it.

    In the title it says "RXT 300", which has the S3, the RXP has the T3 hull. Most likely it's just the nature of the beast.

    It could also be water hitting the rear rub rail on the back as well. Next time you're out on the RXT, look back at the sponsons at speeds you notice the noise to see if it's water hitting them at an odd angle.
