I am trying to order a cover for my 2005 x2 and have no idea what tower I have. Is this a zero flex, xtreme or factory tower.
Also, any recommendations on a brand?http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/03/20/my8uqahy.jpg

Same as on my X2.
It's OEM ZeroFlex. MC has used a variety of ZF towers since they began installing them on their boats.
There are a couple of good threads here about covers -- just do a search. Sunbrella material is generally the preferred fabric -- not cheap but durable, color-fast, and breathable.

I don't know when MC stop calling them zero flex towers, but that is a factory MC tower for 05.

That tower did not have a name. It was built by Extreme Towers which went out of business in 2007. MC used that tower 2005-06.

I'm sure that's because MC stopped using them. Did MBD start making the towers in 07?

Hmmm . . . 2005 WakeboardingMag.com calls it a Zero Flex.
Is/was Extreme Towers the same as the current Xtreme Towers? Both are in Marysville, TN just down the road from the MasterCraft factory.

I've always assumed that the current ZF tower series are still Zero Flex (just abbreviated,) although maybe built by another company?
