Hi, I am considering having Lightning Accessories out of Rancho Cordova build me a new tower. Anyone have any experience with them? Also, if they do build one for me I will have a Boss Tower available if anyone is looking, it came off of my 01 sunsetter vlx. Thanks, Jon

With so many good tower manufactures in the market today, why risk it with a custom made one?

This is a great example Samson Blade Tower. I love the way this tower looks.

I should share my experience with towers. The first boat I purchased was a 195 Sea Ray. We bought a universal tower that fit many boats and it looked great. What a pain in the Asx it was. The tower was big diatmeter tube and it shook and shaked all the way down the lake. Our second boat was a 23 foot larson and it came without a tower too. We did all the research and decided to go with Samson Sports this time. This second tower was custom built in one piece for our boat. Looked great, and better yet was ROCK solid. We did pay a little more, but wow was it worth it. Have a look at this company. They have setups and patterns for most boats and are great to deal with. Don't be fooled by companies telling you their universal tower will not move or shake with your boards and speakers hanging off it when you are crashing across the lake.

We now have an illusion tower on our 2006 23lsv and it is rock solid too.

Good luck with your new tower what ever brand you choose.

I would guess so he can reuse his existing tower mounts and have a good tower on his boat. That's why I ditched my Monster and took two months of hacking, cutting, and polishing a TIII to fit my boat. Total pain in the butt and many "is this really worth it?" moments, but I would do it again in a second. Thumbup.gif

I would consider Titan (or whatever it is now) and Samson some of the good manufactures. I was just saying that there are plenty of good tower companies to go with, that why risk not getting something good by going with an off brand tower.

I had a Samson tower on my Ski Sanger, Back when Towers were only out for a few years, In fact Scott helped me wire it for lights and speakers, That how long ago it was..LOl That company has been around for a long time and Scott knows Towers, You will not be disappointed.. http://www.samsonsports.com/

I love the look of the Samson Blade Tower. Looks just like the G3 tower.

If I had the time and money to blow, I'd switch out my tower for a Samson Blade.

Made an appointment today with lightning. I checked out his shop and i like his work, it's clean and well built. I love the look of the samson blade but having something local is nice just in case anything goes wrong. I'll take some pics and post them. Thanks again everyone for your help! Jon

PS- Thank God for this rain!! Water for our fields and fill up those lakes!!
