STOLTZ Super Rollers are made of polyurethane, to replace rubber and PVC rollers that need frequent replacement. Although they cost more initially, their long life makes them economical in the long run. Polyurethane is extremely cut and abrasion resistant. Won•À_t split or crack, even in extreme cold.
Our rollers do not leave the black scuff marks that black rubber rollers do. No more hard work cleaning the bottom of your boat. We have seen catalogs advertise black rubber as •À_non-marking•À_, but that just is not true.
MAKES LAUNCHING EASY
If your boat is supported by our rollers, it will roll right off. Some trailers have either no rollers at all, or ones that don•À_t touch the boat. Adding a couple of our keel rollers to a bunk trailer that has none, will greatly reduce the effort to launch and retrieve your boat. Adjustable brackets are widely available. I would recommend the one piece variety. What you are doing is shifting some of the weight from the carpeted bunk to the roller, thereby reducing the friction between boat and trailer. You will be amazed at how much easier they make launching. You also don•À_t need to submerge the trailer to float off the boat. You won•À_t get water in the wheel bearings, and will keep the tow vehicle off of the slippery portion of the ramp. They also provides better support for the keel and transom, which many boat manufacturers recommend. Our rollers won•À_t flat spot after months of storage.
BEWARE OF IMITATORS
It is not unusual for other companies to try and capitalize on someone else•À_s success. In recent years there have been a few copycats. Some are poor quality polyurethane, but most are not polyurethane at all. You may have seen the blue bow stops. Those are PVC. The same company also makes it in black, and yellow. We have also seen PVC rollers from China at some of the trade shows. PVC gets harder as it gets older, and can damage your boat through abrasion. It can also spilt and break. So if you want the best, with all the benefits described here, make sure you look for the name •À_STOLTZ•À_ right on the roller.
MADE IN THE GOOD OLD U.S.A.

Enjoy your boat and trailer!
