Fishmaster
$1,600 includes canvass, rod holders, & lights. FoIds down for long tows. Looks great and works perfectly. Installed it with a buddy. No need to spend $4-5k, that’s ridiculous.
How does it hold up in chop? Is there much flexing?
 
That's one of the better looking aftermarket ones I've seen.
Thanks, Bro!!! As a redhead, well formerly, and fair skinned, I needed some coverage from the sun!! When I bought the T-Top it came with four rod holders and the sunbrella canvas. I opted for their Captain's package, which included the electronics box, two lights and a few other accessories that I can't remember now.. Subsequently, I bought two storage bags to store the required LPs and provide a ton more storage.
Pretty happy with the overall package.
Best!!!
 
Has held up well! No flexing, super solid!Had a 2018 f21 bought new came with the fish master t top I put extra rod holders and all kinds of accessories that fish master sells it was too much weight for the ocean conditions here in so cal top broke in half they replaced under warranty then I sold the boat. Just my experience with them. Also if anyone has one and needs accessories let me know I have two five rod holders. Btw I do believe it was my fault it broke bc I had both of those and two 8.8 wake board speaker pods mounted to tower and would go out in any weather. Just don’t overload
 
Here you go. 1994 1800. Atlantic Tower in New Jersey. Very happy with it.

Mine flex a ton which was eventually the reason it broke and we had to take it apart on the water to get home but I had too much stuff on it

Adding to the reply's here, I added a fishmaster two years ago to my 2000 1801 (did it myself) and it has been rock solid.
