You might think all boat fenders are created equal, that choosing a specific brand/model of fender is trivial. But I've used undersized fenders, fenders made from hard plastic, and fenders that abrade and pick-up dirt and grime that gets transferred to your hull. When a boat fender ceases to provide protection for your boat and sometimes causes direct damage to your boat, then the issue is no longer trivial.
|TaylorMade SuperGard fenders guarding Island Bound's new polish & wax|
I highly recommend the SuperGards if you're looking for a high quality fender that will last many seasons and won't get easily damaged or cause damage if properly sized. I also have TaylorMade HullGard fenders, but they're now relegated to back-up/reserve status because I prefer the anti-roll qualities of the SuperGard's ribs.
