adding tower to a TXI?

Recommended Posts

Badger

Has anyone investigated or completed the installation of a tower onto a TXI recently, say last year or 2?  I've searched and found threads on here but mostly they are 3-5 years old.  I'd like to understand what realistic options are out there.  (Yes, the XTP tower would be great, but old threads seem to indicate that they are all strapped to the backs of unicorns.)

I'm considering "trading" out of my VTX back to a slalom boat and wondering what my options are if I could find an early model TXI.  I know I'm in the minority when I say this, but I'd like to find one with a tower and power wedge.  They seem to be few and far between.

Yeah, it's a major bummer you can't get XTP towers anymore.  The XTP on the '12-16 TXi is the best looking boat/tower combo in history IMO.

I'm sure there are aftermarket options available.  May even be able to make a Titan 2 or 3 work.  They'll look odd though.

I have to beleive that it ispossible to get a similar one custom made.  IIRC Peter @SmoothWaterMan  had one chopped down on a slalom tug.  They are classy towers for sure!  post-20239-0-82306200-1416762514.jpg

I had taken an XTP and chopped it to fit a Response LX. 
 

As stated above, when XTP bought Monster (or monster bought XTP) all the small line stuff vanished. It was OEM or monster only.  Which sucked. 
 

Short of a custom build, you have to find an aftermarket tower you like the most, or buy a new Malibu (axis-style) which only fits the TXi.

I have a g3 tower on my 2013 TXi ... from the factory. Not sure if you could still order from Malibu but I really like my TXi / g3 look and function.post-20147-0-76136000-1371781918_thumb.jpgpost-20147-0-08336300-1371781937_thumb.jpg

Thank you.  Yes, I had found your thread and it would be top choice as I think your boat looks sharp.  Just wondering what is out there from an aftermarket perspective that might be a bit cheaper.
