Ullman or Scotseats

Been looking into both of these manufacturers lately. There doesn't seem much difference in quality but I thought I would get the general consensus from anyone who has got or has had either of them. Also wondering at price of them because im not brave enought to ask the company themselves for fear of my card refusing to ever come out of my wallet again!!

I've not been very far on either of them, but have experianced both.

They feel very different, which I think is down to the way each moves, and if you had the choice it would probably come down to which movement felt more comfortable to you.

I believe you're looking at @ 2K each, unless somebody knows better.

Scots with their sideways movement feels veeeery good. Better feeling than the Ulman....

Haveing tried both I would have to disagree,but thats what Forums are for!
''Ulman's'' have been ''Developed'' over a long(and expensive) period,and tested hard in alot of Poffessional and Military applications,and have a great rep. You might say..The test of a seat is the 'Rough',the test of a 'Brand' is time!

Maximus,

This implies that Scotseat don't know what they are doing, are new to this game, didn't do any expensive development, haven't tested their kit hard, and have a poor reputation.

I think that is a little unfair on probably every count. Scotseat have been making suspension seating for a long time and know what they are doing. They've probably actually been supplying suspension seats to boats for longer than Ulman - albeit their "jockey" style seats were not first to market. The fact they have developed a different approach from Ulman rather than just simply copy them, and intentionally included the lateral movement suggests to me that they are more than a couple of guys jumping on the bandwagon.

I've never sat on an Ulman and have nothing against them. I've also not sat in a Scotseat for long enough to draw any real conclusion. So much of ride quality is related to the conditions on the day, the driver and the hull I'm not sure I could try all of them on different boats and definitively conclude one was better (although I'm willing to try!).

Ullman might be considered to be the mutts, but I rigged a rib a year or so ago that had some of their carbon bucket seat types, and the quality and finish was absolutely shocking!

It does make we wonder how they manage to sell them for such an enormous amount of money.

Having tried both, I don't think there's much between them other than personal choice. I think you'll be happy with whichever you choose. Personally I like the skeletal look of the Scotseats - just keep your fingers out of the mechanism!!!
