Wheel advice honwave t27

A friend is getting a t27 and asked me about transom wheels.
I'm happy with my wheels for my 330 pro but can't compare them to anything else.
He mentioned suprod so I said I'd ask on here for a more experienced opinion.
These are the 2 options he's got so far

Thanks

I don't think the second ones are worth the £45+ uplift... but note on the cheaper ones you would have to be very sure of not dropping the clevis pin and split pin when putting up/down. Need to change that for a pin type like a drop-nose with a cord to the transom.

^^^^what David said re. The pins, been there done that. Also, ours are a similar arrangement to the more expensive ones, in that when in the “down” position, the pins just rest in the lower notches, on a rough beach the pins can come out of the notches & the boat drops to the floor. I modified our wheels & added an extra locking pin to prevent this from happening.

As long as the boat doesn't have extended trim tabs my favorite wheels so far are Beachmasters. Super easy to deploy and stow, plus they are completely out of the way. A small lip at the bottom of the transom can be overcome by a spacer. I couldn't find a good photo of the T27 transom to reference off of *shrugs*

l've just bought Beachmaster copies for £170 and they are great, really well made and tbh look the same as the genuine ones? l am sure they aren't but they are certainly good enough.

Previously had the dolly wheels and these are in a different league, roll down a stony beach no issues, pull the boat along a path without it clattering about or the tubes touching the ground.

l would pay the extra for the removable version because they are quite large and it's difficult to roll the boat up with them fitted.
