Recommendation for aftermarket tower

Recommended Posts

cla10beck

Now that Star One is out of business, what tower does the crew recommend added to a boat without one.  I am looking to upgrade to an early 2000's LSV or VLX and trying to find a sturdy tower with good looks.

Thanks in advance

I've been looking a little bit for my 07 sunscape.  I've seen a few previous threads that recommended https://samsonsports.com/ and https://www.roswellmarine.com/product-category/wake-towers-and-accessories/wake-towers/

I've been leaning towards the Samson blade.  Its weird though, sometimes I think the blade looks good and other times I'm not a fan.   

Maybe others will chime in for some recommendations.

Well this could create some activity. I have a titan III (yes a 3) sitting in my shop. Yes I would sell it. no it will not be cheap and I absolutely will not ship it. so anyone interested close enough to drive to Tulsa send me a pm

I previously had a Big Air tower (company is owned by a former coworker of mine) that I installed on a 1996 Sunsetter VLX and it was great for the budget I had.  If my budget would've been higher I think I would've gone Roswell.

I like my T3 a lot, but if I were to have a choice I might consider this one too: https://samsonsports.com/wakeboard-towers/blade-wakeboard-towers/

That said my T3 is SOLID. One thing I would now look for would be a large bimini that is high overhead. I have the older low style and it's suboptimal.

If I were going aftermarket, the Samson Blade would be the only tower I would consider.

Completely agree. Looking thru the gallery of Malibu boats on their page, it is kind of hit or miss. Go with the black sides though, they look better than the others.

I also love my T3 as it looks great and is super solid.

 

Malibu Marine still lists a T2 for sale under their sunken treasures tab if someone might be interested.

I have tried several times to buy from StarOne without much success. They have/had a tower mounted mirror specific to the titan II listed but were out of one of the mounting parts and weren't sure when they may have more. The replacement forks for the original racks that are falling apart cost as much as new racks from other sources. I did finally get a new plastic spool for the rope attachment point of tower after reminding them to ship it a few times.

Thanks for the info about still offering a series II.  I am going to reach out to them to see what options they have.
