Personaly quite like an A-FRAME, for most of the reasons above.In the event ,(and my opinion) they represent an evolution since the early days of infatables..,i.e They would'nt have been developed,and exist on so many craft, in so many configerations... IF they were'nt useful!!
Like so many things on ANY Boat they are a matter of usage, personal choice,and preference.

Without an A-frame, I'm at a loss at where to put my radar....but on a smaller rib, there may not be a point.

TurboSwing sleepbeugel - waterskiŽn, wakeboarden, funtuben

in uk from the c-fury team.
