Title: New seat mod for WS Ride 115X
Post by: Brown on June 12, 2017, 11:59:26 am
Ok long story short, didn't want to pay $600 dollars on a WS Airpro 3D seat so I found that with a little (4 - 2" cuts) the seat from an Ascend FS128T would work. I havent been out in it yet but it already feels more comfortable than my current setup.

Looks good, the new seat should be cooler too, with it's mess bottom.

I did notice that when I sat in it.  And being a bigger guy this seat is so much more comfortable. it is also a little higher than my old setup.  Can not wait to try it out. Thanx

Higher centre of gravity, you'll see how it is once on water, stable ride shouldn't be a problem.

The seat is not that much higher than my stock elevated seat but that doesn't mean it won't act differently on the water. Can't wait to get on the water soon. Thanx everyone for the positive replies
