Sorry if this has already been posted but damn that is one sweet tower. I saw the mock-up a while ago but now they are actually selling them. For an aftermarket tower I think it has got to be one of the better looking towers out there.

I realize it would limit getting in and out of the boat but for $1700 its seems like a pretty sweet option.

I think it would look even better I think with some parts of it powdercoated black like the new Malibu tower. Anyway just though I would post it up because I have seen it in the add banner on here for a while but clicked it today and saw that it was actually for sale from the H20Watersports.com site.

There is a couple of picture that show it with rotating racks as well.

It looks really far back in the second picture, kinda weird.

I see what your saying hate. Still think it looks freaking good though. It seems like they could have pushed it up another few inches and almost butt it up against the windshield. Thats what I would do and it would probably alleviate the "far backness" a little bit.

Went and looked at Malibu's website and the freeride tower doesn't really seem to be that much farther back.

I just bought one of these in black to put on an old Tige. I'm kind of nervous about it and wondering if I chose right...I'll post pics when I get it.

It looks nice but the tower seems to take up all of the sides where you would get in and out of the boat while on the trailer and at the dock. Seems like it would get irritating after a while.

Sick looking tower but it looks almost identical to the malibu towers.. It'd be nice if the aftermarket companies would come up with some sick ass new style instead of copying whats already out there. I know its cool cause you can get one for cheaper for any boat then, but itd be cooler if you could buy some crazy aftermarkey tower to replace the stock malibu tower... make it more personalized to your own style... but thats just my opinion

Oh and the board racks seem to be in the worst place considering being low and right where you get in and out of the boat..
Picture the Aerial tower with 4 boards in those racks... not soo good

This

Mine in black, Just put it on. The stance is adjustable, from 24-30". I like mine more laid down so I went with the wide stance. Still plenty tall and I'm 6'5"

Any close up images of the mounting hard wear? Looks quite slick!

I'm not sure about this design just yet personally as I think it takes up an awful lot of space... but equally allows a clear view ahead...

Is she easy to fold down?

Have you had it on the water yet? How is the stability? Is it solid, rattle free? You've put on a lot of aftermarket towers if I remember, how does this compare?

You could mount that four feet further back and have great egress to the interior and easy access to the boards from the swim deck. You'd also be towing from the drive location so there would be pretty good tracking.

Yah, I've had a bunch of towers, two monsters, a new dimension, a krypt, aerial airborne and freeride. (see profile + 2 towers). Monster was good, but became too common, new dimension was awesome, but they are custom made for the boat so it fit perfectly and easily. They krypt I had problems keeping it tight and alignment sucked, way too many variables to adjust. The aerial airborne was one of my favorites, very solid. Just had this tower out today and it was completely quiet, very solid. The install seemed a little more labor intensive with this one, not necessarily difficult but the tower is heavy. Lots of weight to move around while trying to adjust it. I also ran into two pvc pipes fiberglassed into the sidewall which took a lot of effort. The instructions on line helped a little, but if I hadn't done so many of these in the past I would have felt pretty lost. I had to cut 4" off of each of the horizontal arms up top to get the tower narrow enough to fit my boat. No big deal, a few minutes with a hand saw, but there certainly wasn't anything in the instructions about it. Standard drilling up top. On the sides once you determine the stance width you need to drill a couple holes through the front legs. Again, instructions to prepare you for what you need to do always help. Folding system is a little odd, and as I do almost everything all by myself I'm glad I'm strong enough to do it. Anyway, I'm kind of rambling. Overall I really dig the tower. Think it looks great, works great, and as far as I can tell, I'm the first person on the internet to actually put one of these on a boat.
