    Default Reasonably Priced Wake Gate?

    Was thinking of getting an after market gate like Ronix's setup, until I saw the prices. Read through the forum and started leaning towards building one. Then came across this on Facebook (link below). For just $125 it seems like an OK price and solid setup. Has anyone tried this brand's shaper before? Any other brand suggestions?

    I built one very similar to that for about $30. The suction device in that particular design you posted the link for is $8 from m harbor freight.

    This one looks to be all stainless components and a nicer made.

    If you have any diy skills with a saw and drill. You can build one for under 40 in 1/2 to 1 hr . My vote is build one , but time is money

    $129 is the lowest price I've seen. One of the orig companies was appx $400. Most of the DIYers are building and selling for around $200. They pop-up all over the wake forums.
