I Know Folks Dont Agree With Putting A Tower On A 190...but, We Use The Boat For Recreational Skiing And Tubing...it Lets Me Have Folks In The Back Of The Boat Without Taking Their Heads Off With The Rope.

Its A Joystick Pro Series Tower. I Think It Looks Pretty Good With The Boat! Plus It Can Fold Down In Minutes To Store The Boat.

What Do You Guys Think?

Looks good. I have gone back and forth with the idea of a tower since I got my 205 2 years ago. Off topic, but how have your tires and wheels held up since you got them? I remember the thread (http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=30323) where you were discussing them some time ago. Do you tow long distances or just locally?

The Wheels And Tires Are Holding Up Fine..i Get Compliments On Them All The Time. And Not Bad For A Tower For Less Than $700!!

I Wanted To Take Photos Of The Tower Install....but It Was 100 Degrees And All The Help I Had Was The Wifey....she Was Hot, She Was Tired, She Couldnt Hold It Long Enough, She Got Sweat In Her Eyes, Her Fingernail Broke....blah Blah Blah...! :)

So I Had To Get It Done And In A Hurry!

I CANT GET OVER HOW DIFFERENT THE BOAT LOOKED BACK THEN WITH THE OLD GRAPHICS ON IT! IT LOOKS ENTIRELY DIFFERENT NOW!

Another sweet! That thing flows perfectly. Just don't be cracking the whip with the tubes or you will be cracking your gel.

I'm one of those that isn't a big fan of towers on 190's, mainly because a lot of them just look plain horrible. That is a nice looking tower that flows with the lines of the boat, good choice!

Agree with all of the above, looks good with the boat, and doesn't take away from the look of the boat, which is also great!

I just uninstalled and reinstalled a JOYSTICK tower this past week. Easy and functional for sure.
I dont know where you purchased it..there website needs some updating...but we did find the install and the look of that tower to work out great. Installed on a 1989 TRISTAR!!!

Ill Get Some More Photos Of It This Weekend. Thanks For The Compliments Guys! I Was Trying To Get The Tow Point Where The Rope Goes Straight Above The One Below So I Wouldnt Have To Shorten Or Lengthen The Ropes And It Worked Out Great!

If You Have A Buddy And Not Your Wife, You Can Install This Thing In Just A Couple Of Hours, Its Not That Bad At All!

Like many I've gone back and forth about putting a tower on my 91 190. I like the look without but it would be nice to get to rope up and off the ski pylon. That Joystick looks nice from the side, would love to see other angles. I also use my boat for multiple purposes and my teenage boys love to bring friends and they like to battle on 2 towables. I usually hook to the ski pylon but if I have several people I hook to the rear tow hook. I've often wondered if this is too much of a force for the rear tow. And would it be too much for a tower?
