I already bought mine off Ebay for $35/pair, but with a group order you could buy 20 for $19.50/pair and split the order. Link provided. I'm sure the person on ebay is doing this.....seems like a nice part time business.

Yeah, my company logo is MasterCraft :)

Where can I get MasterCraft bumpers at a reasonable cost?

Now that was a fast reply!!

I just bought them from him a few days ago. He was cheaper shipped to my door than the dealer that is an hour away.

I think this was addressed on the old board, but a lot of the stuff that is being sold on ebay is not Genuine MasterCraft stuff. As a result many of the logos do not match the logos MC uses on the boats, trailers, etc. You'll notice that some items fail to have the capital "C" (Mastercraft instead of MasterCraft) or use some font that looks funky. I'm all for saving some money, especially considering the markups many (but not all) of the dealers apply, but IMHO these cheap-looking knock-offs aren't worth it. All that said, I haven't seen the guide pads that were referenced above so I don't know what they look like.

I'm sure they have a license, along with all of the decal makers etc!

I think this is an area where MC is still missing it, I think they need a more complete accessories offering (and go after the clones). A lot of companies make more money from their accessories than the actual product. I would have bought most of the stuff I received from MC if I would have been able to easily.

These guide pole covers are avalable in the MasterCraft store. There is a link to them on the MasterCraft web page. One of the few items avalable. Maybe next year the store will get up to par.

I just purchased the "genuine" MC guide pads from the MasterCraft store. If you compare the lettering, the MC store pads have an open "a" an open "e" and no swirl on the "t". The E-bay pads have completely different lettering as you can see from the picture. The E-bay ones aren't genuine, but you would have to look pretty carefully and I do agree more MasterCraft accessories would be nice...

Leroy, I didn't see anything on that site that said they did the officially licensed lettering for the boat companies, but I could've just missed it. River Rat, I'd go with the MC store. They're only $30, which is cheaper than I've seen them elsewhere.

You're absolutely correct Doug! I had never dug that deep into the MC store, but there they are for $30 and I paid $35. Much better deal with MC.

Is there a link to the MC Store on this site?

There isn't that I am aware of, but I think Admin said he would be adding that. I had to go to www.mastercraft.com and to the store.
