ive narrowed it down to two towers:
airboom aireal 3D tower
and the 13th floor billet custom tower

i currently have the stock tower that came with my 05 moomba outback but i have alot of weight on it, (4 8in tubbies, bimini, racks) and im looking for something a little sturdier that doesnt look like its going to fall apart while towing or in choppy water. i like these towers because of their look, how they have thicker tubing,less welds, and the fact that i can purchase them in different color combos

i really like the 3D but the 13th floor one is cool but i cant find a place to puchase the 13th floor one or the price. any advice like the pros and cons of these towers or new suggestions would be helpful thanks!

I like the samson towers. When and if I change mine thats what I want. Show some pics of both and you will get a better response.

Tough decision... Looks to me like:

Air Boom
sturdier construction, more sleek, mounts on side (rather than partially on the top deck), but kind of looks like a monster tower somehow

13th floor
follows lines of boat better, looks more like a single unit (rather than peices screwed together), but it has that weird dagger thing in the middle of the tower. Do not like that one bit. Also, something looks like its missing without more lateral supports below the quick release area (inevitable).

If I had to chose one, I would go with the Air Boom - I'm more familiar with the company, and they make a good looking product (the fact that they have a photo gallery with more than one set of pictures is always a good sign too...). It looks more natural to me, and it a fairly progressive design.
