    Was a great present for the boater in our family. He could not stop talking about how happy he was with them. The other boats that anchored next to him were also happy as well as it protected their boats just as much. Bought a total of 4, 2 for each side of the boat. Worked great!

    Bought 2 packages of Dockmate 8' Fender Line by Dockmate to go with it and also worked well.

    Quality seems to be lacking. Valves leak and first storm one of the fenders split. Overton's shipped one already flat and would not hold air. Would cost me more to ship it back at UPS store than its worth. I guess that is how they get rid of the store defects. I have shopped in store many years, but this is my first and last online.

      Ordered 4 fenders for our boat, when opening the box 1 fender had a hole, called customer support about the problem. They replaced the fender no Questions asked, no charge. We received within 5 days. I recommend these fenders for larger boats, very good quality and the best price… I shopped! Thank you Overton's for you tending to my problem and backing up your product! Your customer service is awesome!

          Comments about Dockmate Tuff Shield Fender, 8-1/2" x 27":

          This is a well made product but the size recommended for our length boat is way to large for storage and entry into our 27 foot boat. We are exchanging them for the next size down which should be perfect. We ordered the Cobalt and the color is absolutely beautiful. And they are inflatable which is the icing on the cake.

              A:

              The 8.5 X 27 is a great size. I know it sounds big but you can never protect your boat enough. I ordered 4 more for my son's MasterCraft Wakeboarding boat because he kept "borrowing" mine...
