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.....

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.
