What's the deal with the fork angles? Bakes offers a straight, medium (15 deg), and extreme (25 deg) angle. Anyone have pics of the different setups? Preferably on an illusion x tower. For those that have these, which angle is the usual/preferred?
here is a pic of a buddies 247 sorry for the bad pic but you can see his racks have two different angles to make clearance between the boards on towers with fixed mounting locations. Also here is a pic of mine with all racks at the same angle hope this helps
Clearance is only an issue if you plan to carry wake boards. If you just want surfboard storage you can go with all the same angle. The 247 in the pic is an 08 so it should be very similar to yours. Also if you find a price lower than what Samson advertises call them and ask for Scot he is the owner and will match the price or even beat it.
correct board vs board clearance. if you carry wakeboards and don't have enough space between the racks the bindings will catch on each other and not allow the racks to spin. If using factory fixed mount locations speaker clearance should not be a problem
