Towerbimini and wakeboard rope

I just purchased a bimini from tower bimini and was wondering if the top needs to be down for wakeboarding. I am not sure if the rope is going to sit and bend the back support or rub along the back or the bimini? Anyone with this bimini fill me in

Which top did you get? Above the tower or below? Titan or Illusion? Maybe a pic of the problem would help?

I have a buddy with the TowerBimini mounted below the Titan III & he pulls the top down once all year.... in the fall.

Its a illusion tower and its below the tower. I have to say that is a sweet looking boat.

I have an illusion, but the bimini is above. I have yet to see an illusion bimini below the tower.

I stand corrected it is above the tower I meant below the ball on the tower where the rope gets attached. So for you guys that have the same setup any issues with the rubbing

Yes, the trailing edge of the bimini is getting a bit worn from rope wear. I am going to figure out a strip of something to put on there to take the wear. It is only from when the rider is down, not when you are towing. Rope clears fine when someone is in tow.

Thanks for the reply I am also going to look into something for this cause these tops are not cheap and i rather not have to buy a new one every few years.

I have the same set up (for three years)and haven't had any issues of the rope rubbing the bimini.
