the skis i am looking at are sea doo gti and gtx also yamaha vx and fx. Are there better ones i see yamaha has something similar to perfect pass a speed control.

I am not a skater so I can't comment on the skating capabilities of the jet skis but Sea-Doo IMO makes a much better skin than Yamaha they are safer stabler and more reliable

ive ridden and pulled people behind the gti and the gtx and the gti and the gtx is more stable. the both get the job done and pull great. the difference in pull isnt really that noticeable. <BR> <BR>Ive never ridden behind a yamaha and that feature sounds awesome for begining drivers. but i like to have control because some of my buddies like to do certain tricks at different speeds.

Yamaha's generally produce better engines - I'm not a fan of Sea Doo's, but some people swear by them. <BR> <BR>You can't go wrong with a Yami VX110 Deluxe though

Is 130 hp enough or is its worth 1700 for the 155 hp

Will an old school 750 do the job ?

Yeah, I used to rock a 650 - had to run a little bit to pull up a rider, but once on plane is was money!

We have an oldschool yamaha waveraider 700 and it has been great. We have had it since 96 and have run the crap out of it. I used to pull behind it from time to time and it was fine. Whenever it is riden it is wide open and it has held up great. Did I mention it has been submerged/ sank 3 times and it is still kickin strong. Lastly yamaha is a true marine engine or at least used to be while others were motorcycle or snow mobile engines

I got a 95 polairs 750 and it's got a triple in it and it has no problem getting me up and i'm 200lbs,it's a bit tough to control speed cause it's a two stroke but it has been wicked to skate behind!
