What Slalom Course Manufacturer?

So I am looking at Portable Slalom Courses and I have created this spreadsheet to compare. If anyone has any experience with any of these brands or models or has any additional models or manufacturers please let me know. Just for UMP's sake I will add a poll

I have an Insta-Slalom it's not too hard to set up.

I would recommend the first time you set it up.

1. Be sober or somewhat sober

2. Have plenty of day light

3. Be sober

4. If you have a pontoon boat or the Wildman's Duck boat it makes it alot easier. Especially if said boat has a trolling motor

5. Did I mention being sober


All said, the first time we put it out, we were drunk or at least half way there and it was dark. Took probably 40 minutes if I recall correctly and the course only had a slight dog leg left (I think the Wildman's mind was on golf) that needed an adjustment in the morning.

If you were any closer I'd sell you mine but you can get a great deal from Insta-Slalom if you're a USA Waterski member.

every INT tournament (except those with permanent setups) use an EZ-Slalom course...IMO this is the best course...at somepoint you're going to need to do maintenance on the course and need to have quick, reliable service to get your course back up and running...Ed is the man, he's the owner of EZ-Slalom and does everything in his power to help you out, he's a skier like the rest of us...

check out his website at http://www.ez-slalom.com or call him 1-800-216-4461

he can ship completed systems or you can buy the plans to make yourself, shipping is actually very reasonable for how big the PVC can be...

I'm looked at it enough to realize you can make your own for probably half price, but best to buy a few key pieces from EZ slalom.

Didn't Rod or someone try that and say it cost more at the end of the day?
