Has anyone has any experience with Wise boat seats or ordering from iBoats.com

I want to order one of these benches:

http://www.overtons.com/modperl/product ... rchID=4005

I know this link is from Overtons, but I found a cheaper price from iBoats Just wondering if anyone has any feedback on the bench or the retailer.

Thanks!

I have 2 of the high back wise fishing seats in max-4. I really like them but they will fade if left uncovered.

I have 2 of the Wise Big Man seats in Advantage Max (Armrests sold separately). I keep my boat under a tarp, after 1 year they still look new. I love them. The hinge is well built on these.

Take care,

I just bought a high back wise. Fine seat in every way...except...the snap on the strap that holds the seat down while underway has already pulled through..

I read this same issue /complaint on a number of reviews. No big deal to me, but...for the price..it should have lasted a lot longer than a month. SEAT is fine. Rich

I had a set of them, the hinges indeed are well built, so well it flexes the plastic bottom. If your a big guy like me look elsewhere. Imo they were very uncomfortable after a few hours. I now have tempress seats with a arched back.

Same here. I will not EVER go back to a "flat" seat again. Those Tempress seats are awesome. My back is weak and commonly in pain; however; if I'm sitting in the boat seats I usually fish ALL day (dawn til dusk) without a bit of pain. When I bought my War Eagle, I ordered it "stripped" (no seats/wiring/etc). When it came time for seats I had lots of choices. Some $30 flat seats, some "better" flat seats, and then I looked at Tempress. Salesperson there said that if I didn't like 'em, I could return/exchange them. Since I had another boat with flat Wise seats in it previously I knew that they were ok. But I spent the extra money and got the Tempress high-backs. And glad I did. US company and USA made too. Happy with the investment. They aren't cheap though. I got 'em for $99/each plus tax locally.

Yup but its all molded in to the seat, its not like its bolted on separate like a wise seat.

I'm not a big guy at all. 6'7" and about 200 lbs, nowhere near "big", IMO. Tall yes but not big. My GF is a little bigger. 6' even and about 235. We're both comfortable in those seats. Hinges are plastic. Had mine a little over a year and not a single problem with them. I use the boat cold, hot and otherwise (rain, snow, sleet, ice, wind, calm, etc).
