Several options out there and I can't seem to make up my mind.

First is the OEM original for $600 plus. I like the larger mesh netting holes but not sure if I want to pay that on a used Hobie. I do like the one piece design.

Then we have aftermarket tramps with the smaller mesh, some with the split design and some with the one piece design ranging from $200 to $400.

I have looked at http://www.slosailandcanvas.com/ and http://tampacatamarans.com/ and http://www.multihullnets.com/ and www.atninc.com/ and even the Hobie rental guy in Miami http://www.miamicatamarans.com/ that makes is own (out of stock right now).

Before I pull the trigger are there any other suggestions out there. Just want to make sure I don't miss anything obvious....

Thank you.

Matthew

You should have at least the hole size that is stock. This is a safety issue. You need the forward trampoline to drain quickly to help prevent pitch poles.

Only Hobie heat welds the seams for longer life. Stitches get UV and wear failures.

The Hobie mesh trampoline is in stock.
