What boaties think about the ABL2500 and where launching & retrieving goes hands free!

“Once you use it, you will never go without it!
The Balex ABL is innovation at its finest, it takes
the final pain out of fishing.”
Milan Radonich, Big Angry Fish, TV Host

“From the minute I saw it I formed the opinion, and still do, the Balex will allow boaties to purchase a craft bigger than what they thought they could safely handle at the ramp.”
Geoff Bostock, Fish City Customer, OCB Member, Auckland – McLay611 on Toko Trailer

“Every so often a concept comes along that is genuinely “revolutionary” – The Balex Automatic Boat Loader is one of those”
Grant Dixon, Editor NZ Fishing News

I used my new Balex ABL for the first time on Sunday – worked a treat and garnered a few initially surprised and then increasingly envious stares from fellow boaties down at the greasy low tide ramp as they waded in to hook up cables and cranked away on their winches. Thank you Lex and team – I am already a very satisfied customer.
Murray Denyer, Lawyer at Cooney, Lees & Morgan, Tauranga – Tristram 600 on Voyager

“We used the ABL system on our 2500 Ultracab XL during our Bluff to Boatshow roadtrip on many different ramps around the country. Made launching and retrieving a 3200kg boat with 2 people quick and painless!”
Daniel Upperton – Stabicraft Marine.

I’ve been heavily involved in trailer boats for 23 years and one of the bugbears for a lot of people is the loading and the unloading of the boat. The ABL eliminates the need to downsize. But it also means some boaties can now look at trading up to a larger size as the boat loading is now such an easy task.”
Ross Christensen, Managing Director/Owner, Fish City, Hamilton and brand developer for FC Boats

“We’re pleased to be among the first in New Zealand to handle this breakthrough product.  The biggest advantage is boaties are going to be able to launch and retrieve with no effort at all. I can see it being especially useful for people who have a crook back or shoulder and may find it hard to use a winch. I’m very much on board – I think it’s going to be great.”
Greg Dutton, Managing Director, DMW Trailers

“The level of engineering and design applied to this product, coupled with the very functional characteristics, is amazing for the price. It’s a great product at a fair price, a definite must have for the discerning boatie.”
 Steve Williams, Director, Voyager Trailers

We would just like to let you know that we are thoroughly enjoying using our new Balex ABL (boat launch and recovery) system.  It is so easy.  NO WET FEET. NO DANGER OF SLIPPING OVER ON THE RAMP, and no yelling at the husband!! Thanks for being such a good team to work with.
Mark & Kathy Laugesen, Whakatane, SeaHouse 6.5 on Toko Trailer

We used the boat on the weekend and with the Balex ABL and I  didn’t even have to get my undies wet! Well done Lex!
Sandra Flay, Dargaville, winner of the Hutchwilco Prize Boat 2016 – Surtees 610 on a Surtees Trailer.

I can go fishing on my own now! It’s a great product!

The Balex ABL takes all of the hassle and stress of getting the boat in and out of the water. Even in tricky situations the Balex proves its worth time and time again. It also seems to reduce wear and tear on the trailer because of less stress on the rollers and less time in the salt water.The only problem is now we all want to launch and retrieve the boat.
Adam Clancey, Fishy Business, TV1

“Balex absolutely changes the way our clients launch and retrieve their boats. What used to be a cumbersome and somewhat challenging process, has become simple, easy and stress free. Coupled with our Enduro Trailers, each and every Tristram fitted with the Balex system launches perfectly and aligns like a dream as the bow noses into the trailer on retrieval. We are a true advocate for this outstanding product, and are currently using it on our own private boats also. Well done Team Balex.” Tristram Fink, Tristram Marine

“I am very thrilled about the Balex ABL2500. It has exactly delivered what I expected – no, it has done a lot more!” Gordon Browne, Rayglass 2350

“Back in Queenstown and waking up to a glorious day I launched the boat, did a couple of circuits and returned. Both the trailer and the Balex worked brilliantly! I even had a small crowd of my neighbours oohing and aahing!” Peter Williams, Chris-Craft owner
