I have one, in the slow winter build process currently.
Requires a MX1 specific UMI Steering bracket. Seems pretty like a solid hull thpugh.

I posted in the blaster section also.

Who has ridden the Rickter MX1???

What set up did it have? If possible.

How was it? Handling? Buoyancy? Stability? Feel heavy or light?
Comparison to a blaster?

Overall opinions?

Was thinking about building one?

Thanks in advance!

I have one.

What set up did it have? If possible.
701 all the usual mod and add ons, 144 Pump Solas prop and TBM pump stuffer.

How was it?
Unreal

Handling?
Think a blaster that handles like a Edge, rails, slides, glides and rides exactly how you want one too.

Buoyancy?
Similar to a blaster, maybe a tad less boyant than a B1 but still perfect.

Stability?
Similar to a B1 at slow speeds, better at speed they come into their own especially in the surf...

Feel heavy or light?
about the same a stand up, comfortable two person lift.
Feels very light / nimble in the water, easy to flick around.

Comparison to a blaster?
it has a seat ??
Other wise its a similar size to a modded B1 but a tad wider in the rear.
I likened it to riding Luke Rotorlone's B1 but much better railing and planning, although I didn't ride Lukes in the surf..
Boarding the MX1 is no sweat, I have short arms and I cant water board a B1, no issue on the MX1 as it has a large rear deck that nicely sits under the water for side mounts.

Overall opinions?
hands down best ski yet.

I think they are pretty spot on! Nose width has more taper up front making it very natural feeling when in the face riding waves and carving. Minimal chimes in nose, so a tad loose when pressing the nose. Ergonomics very similar to a Blaster with small seat. Hood hinge up front isn’t very good but neither are blasters. Not enough pull down action on hood seal there. Bigger pump tunnel helps a lot. Desparatley needs underpadding. I’d highly recommend suspension steering. Weight feels a good bit lighter than a stick Blaster. Nose has less rocker than “rocker kit”.
Very well thought out Ski and looks like a Lamborghini!
