Tower for 1997 Prostar 190

I know that a lot of people use the New Dimensions tower on their mastercraft boats. Are there any other recommendations for a PS190? I kind of like the looks of a forward sloping tower. Recommendations?

Thanks

It's personal preference but you may want to keep resale in mind (i.e. what will more people like). Personally, I don't think the forward sloping towers look right on the older boats like ours. I have an ND tower on my '97 PS 190 and I think it looks better than any other tower I have seen -- to me it looks natural as if it were original equipment that came with the boat.

Do you have the full size ND or the mini?

I have the full size. You can see the pics of it mounted on the New Dimensions website. I know a lot of people prefer the look of the mini, but I think the full looks great on our year boat.

Make sure the rear most tower pole is in front of or close to the ski pole. Don't want to make a ski boat useless for what it was built for.

Had that problem with the bimini top. That is good to remember.

Thanks

If you must put a tower on an older Prostar a ND mini is really the only thing out there that looks right on them. Everything else looks like aftermarket junk IMHO.

Thanks for the input. I think that I will go with the X-POLE PYLON EXTENSION for now.
