Extended Pylons

Extended Pylons

Post by R Lace » Thu, 06 Jun 1996 04:00:00


I am seriously considering purchasing an extended pylon for my MC.
I noticed that prices of these pylons range from around $200-$400.
Is there any reason I should spend $200 extra for a skylon?
Isn't a pole just a pole?

Thanks,
R Lacey

A pole is not just a pole.  The main thing is to make sure the pole you buy or build is strong enough and
doesn't flex.  I had a Hylon (T166 Aircraft Aluminum -- Just not thick enough) which was about a $300 extended
pylon and it flexed real bad.  I now own a Fly High extended pylon and it is great.  Really sturdy.  It even
has *** o-rings to help protect the pylon.

I saw an adverti***t in Wakeboard Mag. for the $200 "Joystick."  Does
anyone know if this is a good, sturdy pylon?  How about the Waylon, or
the Wake Pole?  Is there anything about the Skylon and Fly High pylons
that make them better than the cheaper brands?  If there are no major
differences, I would much rather pay around the advertised $200-270 as
opposed to the $380-400 for the Fly High and Skylon.

Thanks again,

Both companies build more extended pylons than all others.       Both
offer superior service and " extended "  Knoledge that can only be found
in companies that have been around for 10 years.
