Power Tower on my X-25 or the new ZFT2
3 Attachment(s)
I am ordering my new 2012 X-25 and trying to decide on the Power Tower or not. I have seen the new pictures of the manual unit ( zft2 ) which is supposed to be the option to the Electric actuator version (zft5p ) and its not very pleasingto me. I have spoken to a fellow MC Team member and he is very happy with his power tower but I have heard some concerns of lots of swaying and noise coming from the unit. Anyone out there with a Power Tower that can give me the honest opinion would be greatly appreciated. I really like it but would not be happy if it makes all kind of rattling noise and creaks over waves.

The pictures are the new ZFT2 Tower new for 2012

I hope you are kidding. That's the new tower? I guess the ugly of this tower will force everyone into power on the tower.

I was thinking the same thing! Power Tower it is. That tower looks like a step back in time. No support arms either. That can't be good.

I hope it's a joke. I really hope it's a joke. I was thinking new X-25 for 2012 but not so much with that fugly thing.

On the plus side that looks really easy to fold down.

I have the power tower, makes no noise on the water, even in rough water. They did a software release on the tower, since then the tower works like a champ. I love it, really I do. I was nervous at first but the new module and software they loaded up seems to be working awesome. I tow down, get to the lake I hit my tower remote in the truck, up it goes. Get out of the water, hit the remote after cleaning up and making way, hit tower remote down and down it goes. Love it, plus, it looks bad a$$. Get tons of that looks cool. I think the new tower in the pictures looks horrible, cheap, not MasterCraft forsure... Might look better in person, and I might change my tune if the power tower goes south, but I think they will just keep improving on the electric motor as it goes, not really worried..
But we hear no noise from the tower on the lake, none.

Same point as this time last year, wait until you see it out on the water before judging it if possible.

Many who were up in arms about ZFT5 now like it when they've seen it in the flesh, especially on the bigger boats.
