I was just wondering if this works and if it was worth the money cuz towers are just too expensive.

Raul doesnt have any of the straight leg one, the new one have slightly bent legs. WAY better than a pole. just make sure that you let Raul know that jeff with modern marine in boise idaho let you in on the info for the new tower.

yes it is. Raul send me the "sneek peak pics" of it the other day. if you look on their website they say their out of stock, but they just got them in and haven't had a chance to change it yet.

Well that sucks. I just bought a very similar tower and paid $630 shipped. That DIY tower looks great for the price.

Its a hydrowake tower...a friend got one and I liked the quality. They do a lot of business on ebay. Oh and I was mistaken...it is similar but one of the bends is reversed on the DIY

dont let the price bother you. the tower you got is much better. look at how the legs mount to the top bar, looks funky to me. and no matter how you install it i think it will look to much like a roll cage. some times cheapers not better. just my 2 cents

the hydro wake has 2 top bars, and the diy has one. for the price, i would still go with a diy. their quality is top notch, and customer service is second to none. always same day shipping on anything i have ordered. and same day service on anything that needs attention.

I think he is talking about this one. its just like my avenger and i still say it looks better and the top mounts dont look like crap. they all come from the same place in china and all about the same but that one for 500 just looks like its cheap and like with any side to side movment the bolts would snap. maybe not but im not sold. i think the one in the pic below is way better looking. i dont think he should feel like he got a bad deal for the hydro he has. peace, ride hard
