SOOOOOO, XTP make all of our "Zero Flex" towers ... and New Dimensions http://www.newdimensiontowers.com/home.html makes towers that are simmilar ... It is easy to see how one gets confused, b/c when you read the "About Us" section it talks about Wayne and "His innovation, evident on the Mastercraft Zero Flex Flyer tower ..." untill now I had no idea XTP was making the MC towers and badging them "Zero Flex" ... I thought Wayne at ND was making the zeroflex towers, hum, guess I learned something.

Thanks for the links Pendo! Looks like they've moved to a more universal tower, hopefully they still make replacement parts for the older ZF towers. We shall see.....

I see a distinct difference when looking at an ND compared to a Zeroflex.
I dont know the history though.

Prolly depends on the year. My 02 looks exactly like the current tower on ND's web page exp the area when tower racks are.

I too see a difference between the ND towers and the Zeroflex (XTP) towers.

Zero Flex would appear to be just one of many towers made by XTP for different manufacturers.

I was suprised that New Dimensions is allowed to use the "Zero Flex" name on their website ... I wonder who has the copyright / trademark ... MYMC or Jim, does Mastercraft own the "Zero Flex" name, and just have XTP badge them that way?

I looked at them both and don't see any differences. Looks as though the NDT front leg has more of a bend than the ZF. What am I missing?
