    Default Rotating Board Rack Suggestions for XLV

    Just spent the past week on vacation at the lake. I'm getting tired of removing the wakeboards every time we tie up with our friends or dock the boat. It's just a matter of time before I forget to remove the boards and tear them up. Has anyone upgraded to rotating racks for the rad-a-cage tower? I have the Z-Cargo Bimini plus tower speakers so I need a rack that will attach a little lower on the tower or rotate up/down as well as inboard/outboard. I don't want to order the racks and find out they won't work well. Anyone with some good suggestions will be much appreciated!

    Moombadaze has the ones from Monster and I think they are fantastic! Solid build, can install anywhere on the tube, fully adjustable and the release is a handle instead of a pin. I hate the pins in mine.

    It looks like the pivoting racks on Monster only come in a black powder finish. I was wanting an aluminum finished racks. Saw some on Aerial but they're $430 apiece. Pretty pricey! Anyone with any experience with the Aerial racks?

    I ordered mine from Aerial and they are great. I too have the Z5 Bimini, and I have 2 on each side.

    gonracn,
    You got any pics you could post? Since you live in Wichita, I could even come and look at them if you didn't mind.

    I'm also interested in these...I still haven't found a good solution for racks that rotate all the way into the boat....I see Aerial says "nearly 180" degrees....can you help confirm what nearly is? if it's 165 or 170 that might work for me but my main goal is to get the boards all the way into the boat for pulling into the lift...have already messed up several racks pulling in on rough days. See attached pics...I tried a rack from Liquid Audio Sounds here in NC....didn't work for one reason...although they swivel into the boat far enough, they don't work on the rad-a-cage due to the curvature of the tube...in the position shown in these photos there is no issue...but as soon as you move the rack up the tube to get to a position I would want them, the way the hinge is designed it was impacting the tube so that I couldn't get the boards parallel to the water...so had to return these and still in search of a good, reasonably priced solution...swivel hinge.jpgrack too low.jpg

    Picked up a blem model from Monster Tower for $129. I think it looks just fine and feels beefy. Can't wait to bolt it to the tower. They only have 2.5" mounts but I think a spacer will solve the problem.

    The masking tape is holding the tools so I don't loose them between now and install time.

    So how bad is the "blem" on the one that you recieved?

    $129 sure beats $600!
