Never heard of it but i don't like nor would I trust that overlap jointed design at the top of the tower.

I think the towers on DIYWake.com have the same set up on top

FWIW that overlap jointed design is used in quite a few universal towers on the market including manufacturers such as Skylon.

A lot of companies use the overlap design for boats of different widths.

Mont ~~ I would say for the price it looks to be a good deal. It has the same system with the overlaped joints as a monster tower that I have installed. Looks to be a great tower and looks pretty good also.

Just like the Skylon, it would need significant supports on the sides joining the front & rear hoop to be very sturdy. The Skylon Swoop sucks without those supports.

My opinion, have one made. I went to an offroad shop that builds custom trophy trucks and buggys and talked shop with them for a bit. Ended up getting them to make a custom steel tower using 2" steel tubing for $1k and had it powdercoated for $200. So for $1200 I get a 1 off tower that has ZERO flex and looks bada$$. Just an idea...

It isn't powder coated or anodized so won't be worth a stuff on the sea.. but on a fresh water lake I'd snap it up.

The monster tower does not use an overlap joint design as stated above.
