So many of you have been screaming for a throwdown shootout, so we've brought you the two most exciting personal watercraft in the marketplace today, the 2018 Yamaha GP1800 WaveRunner and the new 2018 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300. Because handling tests can be subjective and drag races are almost never foolproof, we devised the ultimate test: an acceleration showdown using two bone-stock skis with nearly 30 hours on each clock (28.9 hrs. on the Yamaha and 33 hrs on the Sea-Doo), fully-topped off tanks (so that there's no question how much fuel was in each ski), and the same rider (Greenhulk.net's own Jerry Gaddis, weighing 235lbs.). We use the a Vbox Sport (one of the most reliable accelerometers available) to track true 5-to-20, 30, 40, 50, and 60mph, as well as sustained (not peak) top speed. You won't believe the results because neither did Jerry or we.
