Can you use a Z5 Sport rack on a ZFT5P tower?

I talked to Z5 and Mastercraft about the Sport Rack. Z5 said that they have not gotten the word from MC to design a rack for ZFT5P. They have designed the rack for the ZFT4 but have not released it to the public, I have heard from some reliable sources in MC that it will exceed a cost of 5K.....

Can you please explain what the difference would be between my ZFT4 with a bimini and racks and this sport rack?

May have something to do with finding a way to keep the bimini horizontal while lowering the tower (similar to the factory bimini for the 5p).

5K for a bimini sees out of this world. Thats almost 1/2 the cost of a 17ft bayliner.

Why will it cost 5K to make a pair of cnc aluminium brackets to fix the Z5 to the top of the power tower that will just lower and not tilt, seems the perfect use for the Z5, think the Z5 should be included in the power tower price!

I heard it was $2500-$3000... Not $5000
It is absolutely ridiculous what the company wants for a Bimini top.

I do however need one, to hold up my $400 Innertube.

Other things that you can have for $5000 include, a 2014 SeaDoo spark

The stinks ScottO23, I appreciate nice things (Mastercraft ) but it just seams way to high...

I was choked. Thought it would be a great way to store my surfboards. That price is outrageous.

I really like the bimini sports rack but the price is way to high.

wish I could find a top of tower surfboard rack!

The cost of these new boats (and other options) is ridiculous too, but you have to draw the line somewhere...

Listed price (MSRP) of wake/surf racks was $860...that was painful enough.

Here's my Z5 on my '14 X46. It's not a power tower though. I think the Z5 was a net difference of $3,000 once you didn't have to buy the factory bimini top. Well worth it IMO.

What's crazy is the upgrade price on the Power Tower 7K! While I had the power tower on my X45 and it was nice it wasn't 7K nice. Another thing is the Z5 is much bigger than the standard top maybe that's why it doesn't work with the PT. it would hit the windshield when folded down, not to mention the big CNC arms to hold it out. The Z5 can be removed in about 30 seconds, just pull four pins. Then pull two levers and fold the tower down, another 30 seconds.

Also, don't forget to powder coat your frame on the Z5 (pic 3 ) The aluminum frame sticks out like a sore thumb against the black.

Good Luck.

Does the Z5 cut any headroom? Looks like the factory Bimini would be better for taller people like myself.
