    Question Wakeboard / Kneeboard racks

    Anyone here have experience with DIYWake vs. Monster Tower racks? Probably going to end up with a monster tower MT1, but I can save about $160 with racks from DIYWake vs. Monster Tower.

    haven't personally owned either, but saw moombadaze's Monster swivel racks up close last weekend and thoughtthey were fantastic.

    If you are buying a tower, ask them to throw in the racks or sell them for a discounted price.

    FWIW, I have Monster racks and like them.

    Thanks for the responses so far! The dealership will actually order from monster tower, so I won't try to pressure them to cut us any deals, however I know monster tower ran a 15% sale at the end of August but I missed ordering the equipment. If they run another sale it might be an instant buy.

    We don't have to get the racks quite yet, I'll continue looking for reviews online.

    I have some Monster Tower racks, both waterski and wakeboard. I had the MT1 on my old boat and kept a few racks when I sold it. The quality is top notch. The quick release is great and also allows for infinate horizontal adjustment. No experience with the DYI rack but their speaker clamps are good.

    Just out of curiosity, what is the dealership qouting you for the tower? I'm assuming you are going through them for install reasons? Have they installed towers before?

    love my Monster tower pivoting racks-smoth, quite, and affordable compared to others

    Had a diy wake rack for kneeboards-nice rack, nothing fancy, would hold 2 surfboards if needed. Kaneboats has it now

    Just put on two of the Bullet Lines (Krypt?) Kneeboard/Wakeboard racks this summer. On sale and pricewise I couldn't beat them anywhere else. $258 for both, shipped. So far they've performed quite well. Nothing fancy though - just basic racks that hold a lot of gear... If you have the time, watch their sales, get on their mailing list - I picked them up damn near two for the price of one.

    The ones mounted on top --- usually have a kneeboard on the left side by the yellow surfboard but the kids may have been playing with it. Kneeboards fit great - could probably stack surfboards as the bigger jaws are about 4" wide.

    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    I own half of this boat...They are quoting us pretty much what Monster has on their website, free shipping though. Monster Tower's MT1 rack that we are planning on going with is $999. Yup, we are having them install because we don't want to/don't trust ourselves and they only charge $300 which we thought was reasonable. I would imagine they do this often, but you're right we should make sure they know what the heck they are doing. Hoping Monster runs a fall sale soon so we can save a bit more.
