I have a beautiful 2004 Maristar. I love it "as is". Problem is - my 15 year old son is getting more and more aggressive with his wakeboarding. He really does need a tower.

Does anyone here know anything about "Big Air Pylons and Towers"? They have the best best price I've seen and it looks like great quality but I'd sure like to hear from someone who has first-hand experience.

Their site is: http://www.bigairpylons.com/default.htm

Or do you know of other towers I should consider? Cost is an issue or I'd just go to my MC dealer for a MC tower.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I bought and installed a Wakeair tower. They are pricy, but the will NOT rattle or shake. There is NO moving parts or hinges on these towers. It is made to fit only your boat. They are pricy but, they are made out of solid polished stainless and all stainless hardware. It you want an awesome solid tower with a 10 year warrenty go to www.wakeair.com Goodluck finding a tower, they are well worth the money!

New Dimension Towers, check them out. I picked up one from them, fit's perfect and the price was right on IMO.
Good luck!

I just bought a tower for my 95 maristar 200. I got it from diywake.com and it is a great looking tower with an excellent price. I got the tower and two racks for 1082.00. Great deal and looks!

Costco.com has WakeStars for $929 shipped if you're looking for cheap and a decent look.

I bought a fly high x pole. It gives you the same thing as the tower, you can put board racks on it and you dont have to drill in to that beautiful fiberglass.

I installed a Big Air tower on a Searay a couple of years ago. I was pleased with the tower after it was installed but it does require a lot of drilling through stainless steel. Got tendinitis in my elbow from the drilling and I could not ski all summer due to the tendinitis.

Drilling Stainless on the tower or the boat?

Call ND they could have some and give you a good deal

Careful with an x-pole - tons of pressure on the pylon - particularly bad for the older boats (loosened up my 93's pylon bolts regularly). Save your money and get an ND tower - identical to OEM ZeroFlex design and a custom fit (not universal) for your boat.
