I have a 98 PS 190. Looking for comments on these 2 towers. Thanks!

Last I remember the 13th floor was more of a universal tower. If it is true then it would justify for why we don't see many of them because the $2300 (what I was quoted) is a bit much for a tower that isn't for certain to your fit boat. I like the style of both so I don't think you can go wrong look wise. Your going to have a longer wait also with New Dimension also.

Just bought a ND tower for my 98 Sport Star. Absolutely love it. I like the looks of the ND tower much better. They look like they are made for your boat. Really follows the lines of the boat.

Wayne Hartford, who owns ND Towers designed the original Zero Flex tower for MC. You can tell, b/c his towers look just like the ones you get from MC. He is great to deal with, and spoke with him on the phone directly several times. My vote would be for the ND. Looks great and is holding up very well. Email me at CHaus21@aol.com and I'll send you a pic of the tower on a 98 Sport Star. I can't figure out how to post the pic in this reply.

I like the looks of both, but for MSRP, I'd go with New Dimension. I'm pretty sure the Billet, Plain Jane, and Wide Load are custom from 13th Floor though. They do have one universal tower.

I heard 13th is owned by the So CA MC dealer. Can anyone confirm that? I was told I'd get a discount on a 13th tower since I bought my boat from them. If the discount were good enough, I'd do the 13th installed here locally.

California Skier (Local MC Dealer) owns 13th Floor. So, they do build a tower that is guarenteed to fit your MC. I personally like the looks of a ND better, however 13th floor does a pretty *****in' low-profile tower that rivals the Mini-tower by MC. Both are good towers, it is just a personal choice.

Finally figured out how to post an image. Here is a pic of my ND tower on a 98 Sport Star. Just had it put on a few months ago. Craig

You should check out the Pro X Series Crossbar Tower, made by Fly High / Barefoot International. It looks just like the towers you are interested in, and is built extremely strong.

The UW-Stout Water Ski Team runs the Barefoot International / Fly High Used/Refurbished and Blemished Equipment Outlet Store. The "Deal of The Month" is actually on the Pro X Series Crossbar Tower for only $1000.

You should check out the website and ask them more, www.uwstoutwaterski.com

You can see the Pro X Seriec Crossbar Tower at www.Fatsac.com.

ND is offering 15% off towers and 10% off accessories until the end of the month. Inquire about their lighted tow spool and pre-wire for the light and speakers.
