Any thoughts ? We need some wakeboard racks but most racks are so pricey

I'm not sure how to tell the value on those ... So you buy the racks for $100, then the mounting bracket for $39, then the clamp for $29? For a total of $170? Might be a good deal, but it's hard to tell.

These are the ones that I have, and I think they're great:

Monster Racks

For $235, I thought they were a great deal. They're adjustable, and you can remove them from the tower really easily if you have to. Granted, I have mine on a Monster Tower, so I'm not sure how compatible they are with other towers. They say they're compatible with any tower, though.

One thing to look for on the rubber inserts on the fingers of the rack is if they're somehow attached to the metal of the fingers. Alot of them are just kind of popped in there and they come out over time, which is a real PITA. On mine, there's some sort of tiny rivet that holds the rubber inserts to the metal.

I just recently bought a tower from them. I have not installed it yet as I do not have it. I will let you know what the quality is of the tower. I would also check on EBAY they are pyramid manufacturing, I think. Seems like it would be a good deal if the workmanship is good (i.e good welds and strong aluminum).

I'll keep you posted. I will most likly buy 2 racks from them after christmas, Unless I find a better deal on ebay.

I am looking at getting some racks from them. At $161, they are about 1/2 the price of most. I don't need a lot of bling, just want a couple of racks to keep the boards off the floor. Anybody try these

The bottom pic is the one for the Illusion tower, My ony concern is that it may stick out a bit.

I have bought speaker cans from them for my tower and was really impressed with the shipping to the uk and the service provided. The Chrome finish was immaculate. So if they are anything to go by the racks should be of a good standard

Least expensive wakeside has is Dbot5 Robot Arm Wakeboard Rack they are $35 more and require a $50 adapter. It does look nicer though

I am just shopping for a Christmas present my kids can afford for me. DIYWAKE has some great reviews on EBAY, just trying to get some more opinions.

Raul is a great guy, that is who I have dealt with when I've ordered from them. They are very straight foward and honest Thumbup.gif

I bought 2 racks for my Titan III from diywake.

The parts look pretty good. I got the racks at the end of the season, so I didn't have much lake time with them, but they seemed to hold my boards as well as the Titan Low Rider racks I has on my old Bu.

I bought 1 rack from DIY it fits the tubes on my Titan series 1 very well - the rubber to protect the boards is starting to peel off at the end from people not being careful when inserting the boards but the price and looks can't be beat - I would purchase again.
