Not my taste. In my opinion it seems to cheapen the look. Could be a fad, who knows.

I have it and on any boat with a center pylon, I would want it, but we barefoot. It does make it slightly easier at the dock and I guess you get more air flow. I also personally like the look.

I like it and I think it is here to stay.

We have the BTS windshield and it makes it very easy to talk to riders while they are in the water. It also helps when pulling up to the dock. Here is a recent pic from Lake Anna, VA.

Here is another pic. I don't think that it "cheapens" the look.

We also have the BTS windshield and really like it. It really helps talking to riders in the water and very nice backing out of the dock.

A few things it helps with that I didn't expect 1) with the boat on the trailer you can actually reach the glove box and the dash if you need to get something. 2) for all us OCD folks if you like to wash off the boat with a sponge or a rag while out on the water, you can actually reach all of the boat from in the boat vs having to get in the water. 3) a bit easier to attach a bumper or rope to the center cleat.

Short answer is we really like it.

First thing I thought when I looked at it is "looks like a convertible". Autos with convertible tops have that same chopped-at-the-windshield frame look with the top and windows down. Think a Corvette or an old Thunderbird.


Not the same flowing lines as a hardtop, but just as classic and clean. I like it.
(Nope, not mine)

A few pics of our BTS windshield.

Also if you live in the south where it is darned hot in the summer. The driver and passenger can get more airflow. I haven't been hanging my head out like a dog or anything, but you could. 😜😜😜😜

My biggest single concern is the person who reaches out while backing off a lift and gets their arm severed between the window V and the bar. A slant would let you slide up.
