    anyone use the elite traction mats from blacktip?

    found these digging through instagram and really like the retro squares.

    http://www.watercraftsuperstore.net/...-Wake-GTR.html

    contacted WCSS who said they have 2 other colors that are not on the site yet, an aqua and orange.
    so far it looks like they are just for seadoo craft.

    i asked about fading since i want squares with black on top and orange on the bottom and they said its a new material that has what he would call sunscreen built in to help prevent fading.
    EVA is what he said the mats are. not sure what that is LOL.

    I've not seen a single Blacktip (SBT) product with quality anywhere near that of Jettrim, or Hydroturf. I'd vote hydroturf for mats!

    i was originally looking at hydroturf but with how fast/bad people have reported fading on bright colors i just dont know. i remember someone saying even with the ski in the garage the mats faded.

    6 times out my beautiful green went to shit. I complained to them and they said it's in the disclaimer on certain colors. I understand certain colors fade faster but 6 fucking times!?!? That's $25 a ride and totally pathetic. My ski is garage kept and meticulously cleaned after each ride.

    My black tip seat still looks great but I use Griots leather care on it once a month.

    i heard from wcss this morning and what they have in stock on the orange is the stuff that will fade but they did advise they should have the stuff with the built in sunscreen in stock in a cpl months.

    thats fine with me as i dont need mats right away.

    I have had blacktip mats on my RXP for going on 3 seasons now, and they still look like new.

    I had Blacktip red mats on a ski and they turned pink after 3 rides and less than a month. Ski was kept either covered or in the garage.
