Anyone using the Get High Sports wakeboard tower racks?

If so are they any good. I like the surfboard option, and I need a rack that can be adjusted since the rear post on my tower sits at an angle.

Also considering the monster tower racks.

John,

Funny, I was looking at those on e-bay last night. I don't really like the mount, 4 points on a round tube seems like it will leave a mark. The idea of the surf rack option is pretty good however it seems that it would stick out so far I would worry about hitting things.

I just got one last week and it seems solid. It can be mounted at any angle. I got it from their website, not the ebay site. Compare prices.

I do not have the surfboard option.

Mikeski: I'm not too worried about it leaving a mark. I put grip tape around my tower before mounting them anyway and my tower tubing is really thick. I am a little worried about the rope hanging up on the surf rack, but if I get it for the observer's side it won't be a problem, since I rarely if ever bring the rope to the rider on that side of the boat.

Maybe the monster racks are better.

I've got two sets (see profile pic) and they are awesome. The tower mount is well padded and I have the surfboard option on both sides. The rope has never caught on the rack and they've held up real well in rough water. One of the real nice features is the "no edge ding". My absolute platinum edges got beat up in my monster racks cruising the Stockton deep (rough) water channel. The wakeboard slots are more vertical than most which helps loading and unloading boards and the slots are wide enough to accommodate anything I've tried to put in them.

I was looking at these racks too, trying to decide between them and Wake Designs racks. I was curious with the Diablo racks in rough water does the board eventually wedge itself between the rubber, making it difficult to get out?

The Wake Designs have a handrail mount option. I have a 95 SS Nautique (V-Drive) with the handrails on either side of the engine cover. Have any of you tried/seen this done? I like the idea of keeping the boards/water in the back of the boat.
