    Default Swivel Board Rack Upgrade

    Are the PTMEdge board racks worth the upgrade on a SA/SL? The standard bungie racks are well standard but compared to the bombshell racks they seem kind of basic. As a newbie should I just go with the standard racks and use the upgrade funds for other items?
    Thanks - D

    PTM clampers are 100% worth it!! I prefer them over the Triton board racks on the Nautiques. They are easy to get the boards in and out of and do not damage your boards. Buy them and you will never look back.

    I just went through the same questions myself on the Makai we're ordering. I chose to upgrade to the Triton racks on it as I get tired of messing with the bungees especially when you have a full boat and trying not to pop anyone in the face with them. And its a little cheaper to upgrade from the beginning vs doing it later on down the road. Hope that helps you out a little as they are a pretty hefty investment compared to the standard racks, which work perfectly as they are.

    I upgraded to the new Triton racks, and they are nice. Did have an issue with one of them swinging in at 30 mph which isnít funny!
    Still working on getting it fixed, Roswell has not been super helpful, I got a new part from them but still not latching right. At 2K a rack, they should be just sending out a whole new rack.

    I like the PTM over the Triton. Since it was not an option for my Craz, I ordered it without the racks and bought them separately. I though the Triton would block too much of my view since the boards are vertical. I hate those bungee style racks. The bungees strech and the boards are not held down snugly. I also wanted to be able to put a ski rack above my PTM clamps and wasnít sure the Tritons would allow for that.

    I love the PTMEdge board racks. Expensive - yep.

    On new builds, what does not fall into that category for upgrade?

    When we demoed a boat with the triton racks, i noticed a huge blind spot where they were mounted. Nothing you couldn't get use too, but if i was on a busy lake, it does obstruct the view. Quite a bit when the person skiing or boarding is behind it as well and they are loaded with boards.

    I chose the regular racks with the bungee's. I came from clamping racks with my Mastercraft and the bungee system took a little getting used too. But the way they angle allows me as the driver to see 360 degrees so it is a trade off.

    I have both PTMs and Tritons on the Supra and love them. Yes, there is a blind spot, but only right beside the boat. With my mirror, I never lose sight of my wakeboarder or surfer. The great thing about the tritons is they put very little pressure on the higher dollar soft surf boards. I also like the they are vertical so wet boards and boots drain outside the boat, not to the inside like normal racks sometimes do. On the SA with the surf locker and bimini storage, I can house 12 boards, its awesome!
