More than two racks on Illusion X Tower

Recommended Posts

WaterJunkie

I recently purchased an 05 VLX .. Yea!!! anyway, It came with one Metcraft stationary rack on each side. I have purchased two more fixed racks from bullet lines ( double wakesurf and a kneeboard/wakeboard rack ).. I am having issues with the racks being too close together to be able to use all the slots on the racks. I don't think it is a rack issue but a design flaw having the mounting locations so close. Sorry if there is already a thread about this but I couldn't find it. Any suggestions would be appreciated!!

Assuming you have the illusion x tower... You are correct about the locations being close together. There are racks that are sold that angle upward. These are usually used in the upper locations to angle the racks up and away from the lower racks.

could also look into nice racks drop downs.

Thanks to both of you for responding. Yes, its an Illusion X tower. I saw the nice racks drop option, that looks like it would work, and using straight racks on the bottom looks like it could work too. I guess all of my racks angle upwards. I guess nothing can be simple!!

Thanks

Anyone know where to purchase straight forks to replace angle forks on a metcraft stationary rack?

Maybe try swapping the positions of the old racks with the new to see if that will work.

I had the same issue, you can see it in my profile picture.

Contact Jeff below, he has the regualr forks for $125 a pair and the combo rack for a surfboard for $140.

They are close but it sounds like you have all upper racks. The lower racks should have more of a straight fork while the uppers are more angled. Below is a pic that i found on Google.
