I found this tower online for $625, does any one have one or any input on whatcha think about it? I would get it in polished silver if i did buy it. It is a universal tower.

FOR $625 why not. Not everyone can afford the price of bling. It will work for what you need it for. WAKEBOARDING!!!

Side mounts are easy to hit on docks & other boats anytime your tied up.
Always top mount if possible.

625...Why not, doesn't look to bad to me. Not real crazy about the red but other than that it looks fine.

My only comments are is it looks like the legs are awfully close for and aft, I'd think it would be much sturdier if the legs where farther apart. The lack of racks for the price should also be considered especially in a smaller boat where space to put equipment is already at a premium.

How does this tower fold down? It appears to me that the front legs cannot swivel like a MT so that may be why it is cheaper. Let us know how you plan to use this tower (i.e. will fold tower down for storage or keep tower up in a slip or on the trialer) and we can probably be more subjective in our responses.

I'd want to see a side view "profile" of it. doesn't look like it has the bracing at the top like a MT. or the rigidity of a titan, where they borrowed most of the design. i'd want to yank on it a little. with boards and speakers that is.
Looks like you could modify it to fold down, wait, more $$... not that great of a deal when you look at the "all-in" price

It's hard to tell, but I think the back mounts on that tower swivel. So it should fold backwards. If it was me though, I would find something with board racks included instead of buying seperately.

The tower does fold down, i dont think that wakeboard racks would look good on it though. It has quick disconnects and folds down in a few seconds apparently.

I would stay far away from that one if you can. I would just spend a little more and grab a monster.
