Bobs Machine Shop jackplates?

hey guys,

New member here and new proud owner of a Ranger z21. I was looking to install a hydraulic Jackplate and I was wondering what you guys thought of the Bobs machine shop jackplates at Bob's Machine Shop.

Did some googling and have been hearing good things about these plates, I was looking at the action series (the all in one jackplates) in maybe a 6 or 8 inch setback. Any suggestions?

Thanks Guys!

These seem to be the best on the market these days. Very nicely made.

Don't waste your money, Stainless Marine Gorilla is the only one worth having, or a Detweiler

+1 on the Gorilla, I've broken a few of these, and the Jack is unmarked, and still as tight as the day it left the factory.

Vance jack plates are well made but very heavy and took lots of maintenance using in salt water.
