Big Air Fusion: Product Review

Big Air is one of our most popular manufacturers that we carry. They have been in business for nearly 20 years! In our experiences with them they have been very easy to deal with. They are very serious about their customer service. They are a Christian based company and with these values in mind they try to keep their customers first and their prices affordable, which allows us to offer great pricing to you!

Want a stainless steel tower but don't want to have to drill through the tower? Because drilling through stainless steel can be difficult (in case you didn't know).......Well the Big Air Fusion Tower is the answer. This does not eliminate the Fusions universal nature. It will still fit most boats 58"-103"wide and you you can still mount it on the top or side gunnel. Worried about stress cracking your fiberglass? The Fusion has a unique swivel joint attachments built into the base plate, this system keeps the stress and flex in the tower, not your hull. 

This tower also has a built in bung for thr Big Air Razor Series Racks. This eliminates the need for a clamp, this allows you to bolt the rack plate directly on the black piece shown in the photo to the left .   In my opinion this makes the tower look a little cleaner.

Are you tall? No problem the Fusion stands about 5 feet tall! With a 2 foot gunnel that is 7 feet of clearance!! There is also gusseting in the corners that make this tower extremely rigid.  Need to collapse the tower often? The included stainless steel quick release knobs make collapsing quick and easy.Did I mention this tower is made in the USA? This is surely a USA quality product. Below is a video of  Loren from Big Air explaining and demonstrating the installation process.  He is very clear and show you some neat installation tips 

Overall, the Fusion is definitely a durable tower ahead of its time. You cant go wrong when making this tower an addition to your boat.  You also get a company that backs their products. Don't forget the 5 year limited warranty. However, I seriously doubt you will need it.

 So ahead of it's time!July 11, 2016

Let me start of by saying that this tower is exceptional! The instructions could have used a little help, but honestly, I couldn't think of a better way to put what I was needing so... if I can't help it, I can't say much about it. These things can be hard to put into words. I called up Wake Essentials though and Shane was great to help me out. Simple phone conversation letting me know I was on the right track and that was all the confidence I needed to get it finished. This tower is so ahead of it's time with the "no drilling system" and it is ROCK SOLID! A stainless tower is definitely the way to go and I could only find them from Big Air, I just happened to find a better price through Wake Essentials, thanks again guys! I am so pleased with this purchase and with the production of the tower.
