I have some Monster wakeboard racks, bought 3 years ago.

My plastic inserts keep on breaking, about once per year. Anyone else have this issue? Monster racks are about he cheapest rack out there. Does this mean I got what I paid for, a cheap rack that will break down alot?

Are other types of racks more VFM in the end?

Thanks

What tower is it on? I have never had this problem and must have sold over 1,000 Monster racks in my time....

I guess you can substitute the plastic insert for rubber (which is something we do on stainless towers as it seems to grip better).

The tower is custom, but stainless.

Where can I get rubber inserts?

This may be your cause then. no idea why but rakcs just don't seem t work as well on Stainless Towers...

You can't buy Rubber insterts but you can make them... just find an old bit of rubber... cut it to shape and fit... et voila! Instant bushing Very Happy

riderite, Wow, so star one wake is where we should all go? It's just I notice that is the only company you ever mention in any of your 7 posts... it couldn't possibly be that you are called Brett and work for Star One Wake could it?

abrider - Generally we have very few cases of broken inserts no matter what tower. Sometimes when tubing is bent it gets slightly out of shape so the inserts don't fit quite like they're supposed to. You can try the rubber as Brit Rider suggested, or we can send you out a new set of inserts so you can maybe try them on a slightly different part of a leg to see if that will help. Give us a call and we'll see if there's anything else going on and get you squared away.

I would just like to see people that are buying stuff and live in the US to keep our money here and not send it to China. Lets keep are money here people. I am not concerned on who someone buys anything from just if you live in the US lets keep our money here and boost our economy. I am tired of hearing people all pissed off cause there are not any jobs here. Then buy AMERICAN MADE people.
