$65 breaks the bank after $125k boats, $1300 skiis, and $259 backpacks?

I get the point, but these look slick and deal with the varying heights of docks and multi-vessel barges.

Expensive is a relative term right? Well these are expensive relative to the competition.

We don't all buy the 125k dollar boats. Nobody got rich by spending all of their money....

I agree...it's quite an expensive fender. You can always spend the money elsewhere, so I think the price is a legitimate gripe.

I think its pretty cool system, I like the way they sit above & below the rub rail! Also like that its an airless fender, won't deflate.

Not sure on the price, maybe a bit high, but my kids purchased skull fenders for me at a much higher price which I love.

I have phender pro clips, so would not really work for me, and the ropes dangling in the water would drive me crazy, plus threading the tie off rope through the fender.

Yes their shop is in Plymouth, MN.

I thought these fenders looked innovative but agree the price seems high.

I will be buying some of these towels though! Love the Velcro strap to hang. Normal towels seem to blow off if they are clamped down.
