Default Voilé Ski/Snowboard Tuning Tree

Has anyone tried these? They look pretty decent for under $50. I'm somewhere between diy'ing some of my own or just getting these.

I would imagine they work fine. Voile is a pretty decent manufacturer. For under $50, it's not like you spent a fortune either...

Only issue I see is that they are made out of plastic and even though they will work they won't last a lifetime like a quality steel set would... For $60 more you could get a good steel set...

They just clamp to a bench and hold 5 lbs... I can't imagine them braking unless your really tuning the fuck outa your board lol. I changed my oil the other day using plastic ramps, they were stronger than any metal ones I've had in the past which bend and rust, plastics have come a long way

I agree but with my luck I would drop it and end up with a broken tree especially the crank bit to mount it to the table looks like the weak point to me... But then again if that happens no reason you can't duct tape another c-clamp the same size to it...
