Another new seat thread

Unread post by Beeman »

I have finally decided to pull the trigger on replacing the stock seats in my sportsman 180.
For the suspension part I am pretty sure I have narrowed it down to either the shockwave s5 or s6 or the smoothmoves brand.
Each have their supporters and so far I have not found an argument that shows one is better than the other.

As for which seat to mount on them I am still looking.

Once I actually start installing I will post pics

Had the smooth moves seats on my boat from the factory.
I weigh 240 lbs and do at least 100 to 200 hr of open ocean fishing a year. The seat base fell apart after 2 two years so no warrantee.
Installed the S5 shockwave on the helm seat and loved it.
After 5 years the welds on the original swivel/slid broke and the seat back was bent.
Replaced it with the Corbin shockwave seat and swivel/slid. My wife likes it so well we will be replacing the other seat as well.
Not cheap but still less expensive than a bigger boat.
