    Skeeter rod straps

    Anyone know part numbers for the new skeeter rod straps? I hate the bungies mine currently has. Need replacing any way.

    I did this upgrade on my 2012 ZX190. It is not for the faint of heart. Nice straps and hardware but they still use bungees.
    Here is a post I did a few years back:

    Since I did this the pulley assembly screws pulled loose since there really isn't a lot of meat for the screws to bite into. I fasted some small sheets of 1/4" ABS underneath with screws and 3M Marine adhesive then screwed the pulley assemblies back on. Problem solved. Newer boats with the straps have mounting pads underneath.

    My friend Kevin used Rod Buckles with the Concealed Installation kit on his 2007 ZX190 and had very good results. He made his own grommets instead of using the plastic ones. Rod Buckles are an easier way to go for sure.

    I agree. The rod buckle is easier but the skeeter look better

    I don't remember the cost but it was a lot higher than Rod Buckles.
