I have had no issues with the Chub, and it was a very sturdy tower, but the Blade just looks mean and I think it would look pretty sick when my Sanger is slumpin' through those Texas waters.
I can get either one for roughly the same price, but my concern with the Blade is that it could be flimsy in comparison. The Chubby is very stout and I've been told it is one of the sturdiest out there, so I'm not sure if I want to sacrifice the solidness for looks.
The Chubby is so classic on a V215. Can you get just the top section and save some money?
I would also take a look at the Samson Razor. It is $500 more than the blade but comes included with swivel wakeboard racks. Here is a photo of a V215 with the razor.
Well I guess that didn't work. Here is a V230 so you can get the idea of what it would look like on a sanger.
