Looking to buy the sea-doo RXT 260 IS. (Intelligent Suspension
iS offers six inches of separation between you and the water, isolating you from the impact of rough water. So you can ride longer and more comfortably. ....)

Anyone had any experience with this new feature of intelligent suspension?

Does it work or is it just a gimmick?

Thanks for review!

I own a RXT-is 255, Instead it was like a big yellow pogo stick with the suspension recoiling and launching you higher in the air than a standard ski. Some friends and I went right down the center of the Chesapeake Bay to Red Eyes dock bar in Kent Narrows. Went about 45 miles one way then rode back. I thought I was going to get hurt with all the bouncing and jarring. So there you have it.
And what you describe is exactly what I was worried about. The IS suspension sounds great in theory but I knew there had to be drawbacks. With that being said, the jetski is for a lake in PA. I guess you're saying if I took it out when no one is around and conditions were relatively smooth on the lake it does the job. But---if it's a busy day on the lake the IS can actually make the ride more perilous/uncomfortable if it is choppy conditions?

Maybe I should look at the seadoo rxt260 (without the IS)?
