Samson G3 spinning racks


Recommended Posts

Anyone ever bought anything from Samson? I was looking for ski rack options and found this:


But when I asked for a picture of one of the G3 ski racks, they don't have one and said that it only works in the lower position when the website lets you order it for upper or lower.

Seems kind of odd that you would sell a rack and not have any pictures of it. I'm assuming that it looks like this with a different tower bracket: http://www.bakesonline.com/detail.aspx?ID=2112

Not as pretty as the Malibu rack

I have a typhoon spinning rack from Samson. It is for a hydrofoil, not skis however. It is one of my favorite purchases my boat so far. I cannot vouch for the ski rack, because I do not have one. I had a good experience with them if that is what you are looking for.

Most people who have had Sampson products won`t go back to anything else. They are made in AMERICA and are a great product. I have had them on my last two towers. and have nothing but good things to say.

I like the one from gettommys, but when I called a while back I think it was $850ish.

Yup, the Malibu one is $895 according to my dealer. Looks nicer but I'm not seeing $270 worth of difference between it and the Samson.

I have two Samson Typhoon racks . Replaced both the factory racks on the G3 with these. I love the fact that I only need one hand to spin them into the boat.

I was just about to order the Samson and then realized the difference that matters to me. Their rack doesn't slide off, it would have to be unbolted. To get the boat in my garage I have to fold the tower down and remove the racks.
