I am very happy with my monster tower. I originally went with it because it was the cheapest option available. I am really impressed with the quality of the product, and I think it suits the boat.Upload

We have installed a countless number of Monster Towers and I just don't know how you beat them for the price. The new MT2 is super nice. Just my .02.

Sampson would be my first choice. In addition to being well built they look good too.

I had titan 2 on my last boat. Easiest to drop down. In my opinion one of the most sturdy towers on market. You can also load them with multiple board racks and it won't bother them. Really great bang for buck!

Titan rocks. Sturdiest by far. And very easy to break down. Their made specifically for your boat, not a universal fit. So they don't have all the joints in them that cause movement problems. Strength & sturdiness is needed for strong, aggressive riders & those who want to stack the tower full of speakers & racks.

Riding a foil can be tough on a tower. Not many wakeboarders weigh in at 250 - 300 lbs & do inverts on both sides of the wake and in the middle. The combined foil & rider weight can be rough on towers, especially if he's strong & holds on to sketchy landings. A tower that flexes at all can flip the handle back into the boat, even using a non-stretch handle. Occasionally a strong, aggressive boarder will do the same. This can & does break windshields, mirrors, hit passengers, even break the tower itself.

Pro Flight used to make early Malibu towers. Theres a reason why they are no longer the tower of choice. Look around & you will find Pro Flight owners unloading their towers on Ebay or WW to upgrade to something else.

Samson has gotten better. Still pretty bouncy but at least they removed their integrated racks so the rope doesn't get hung up every time you turn to pick up your rider. I hear they now have their swivel foil racks fully designed & in stock.

For all the happy Monster owners, there are unhappy ones too. I don't know what the percentage is, but for some reason I see & hear about their towers being misaligned & having way too much movement, possibly due to poor installation. Their saving grace is that they have exceptional customer service that tries hard to help people with their shoddy installs.

DAMN! Those MT2 towers look great. I have been waiting for monster tower to come out with something new.

I like the look of this one. It looks like it is made for the boat instead of the universal look. Air Cannon.

That Air cannon looks sweet.

Never heard of anyone not happy with their proflight and they are the factory option for Sanger.

I like the looks of the Air Cannon tower. I did a search on the web and couldn't find anything. Does anyone have a link to them?

Are there two AirCannon towers? This doesn't look the same at all.

I think earmark might have put there tower together backwards.

There are 2 different Air Cannon towers, you can see both of them on the bulletspeakers site above. The second one looks just like what is on the earmark site.

By the way, check out I just had one installed and I think it looks great. A lot cheaper than most of the custom options I was looking at, but doesn't look like a universal tower.
