Default Cobia Tower - Quality Price??

I am thinking of adding a tower and keep seeing quotes from $500 to $1800. I'm not interested in controls up top, only a comfortable place to spot/fish from. The $1800 is for a good, solid tower with a couple of rocket launchers, pads around and fold up seat. I'm not sure what $500 is for but I suspect a space to stand in without getting tossed out. I'm located between Pensacola and Destin so if anyone knows someone in particular, either post here or pm the information.

A basic tower should run you about $400-$600. With a couple of rod holders and pads around I would add about $200-$250 to that price. I'm not real sure how much a folding seat would run.

As you've figured out -- you get what you pay for. I'm not sure of a good manufacturer up in the Panhandle, but make sure you take a look compare the following:

Pipe Schedule and mounting points
Weld quality

Many times you can find a used one online (craigslist) for $250-$400.
