This is by far the best boat fender out there! The most protection you will find for your boat. They work fantastic, are simple to use, fill up (I used a 12 volt inflator), and deflate for storage. They only take seconds to inflate or deflate. I had a slight issue with one of them, however it did not effect the use or functionality whatsoever. I reached out to the owner Caleb, and he responded back within minutes. The best customer service experience I have every dealt with. I am an extremely happy and satisfied customer.
Bought some Babz balls a couple weeks ago for our Lake trip this past week. We don’t normally ever tie up anywhere and Having a 19 yr old boat I am not super concerned if I get a nick or something. With saying that I liked how these balls deflate and store real easy. So I picked up a couple.
Well we were on the main channel of the lake and the boat stayed in the water tied up to the dock. We got a bunch of big rollers and one afternoon a solid storm rolled through that was throwing some massive waves! BABz Balls saved my boat , these rollers and massive waves from the storm would have trashed my rub rail and my board racks would have hit the dock and gotten jacked up! These Bumpers are a no brainer in my mind now that I have seen them in action. The shear size that they get to is amazing and really do the job well!
We are believers! We recently attended a huge boat owners event where we tied off more than 20 boats together. Many of us were using BABz and were thrilled with the results. Even in the middle of the lake where waves would cause one boat to rise before the other, the BABz fenders protected both boats. Lastly, the customer service they provide is awesome as well. If you are in the market for fenders, don't hesitate to purchase these.
Bought four of these and have loved them so far. They are nice and big and work great at the dock and when tying up in the middle of the lake. They deflate for easy storage. Tossed my other bumpers that were taking up prime storage.
Hands down greatest fender made yet for a boat. So much more clearance you don't have to worry about a thing!!! Best part is they deflate so small I have more room for our alcohol and water toys!!! Great buy no doubt only way to go. They work best when we were tied to another boat at party cove.
BABz came to be from the lack of options out there for boat fenders. They were either too hard, scuffing the boat’s delicate gel coat, too small, not durable enough, didn't last, warped, not easily stored, etc. So we decided,
"It's time for a better boat fender"
They’ve been dubbed BABz. We wanted these to be made to last and tough enough to take the punishment of a dock or larger boat. To allow for this, these are made from a thick, durable, but soft plastic blend. The handle itself is reenforced with a harder, thicker plastic. The air filler location is also reenforced to eliminate leaks or tearing associated with constant inflating and deflating.
Every boater knows storage is a premium. BABz easily deflate and fold down for easy storage leaving room for more important items.
BABz are the largest fenders of their kind on the market. These will inflate all the way up to around 24 inches. The thickness of the ball itself allows for different sizes of inflation and firmness for different situations. With smaller, boats, the larger size allows you to put these at the water level when tied up at the cove and not have to worry about hanging them at just the right height. The handle is also designed to hang directly on the cleat. Of course, you can hang these in the traditional style.
A plug style has been incorporated for inflation and deflation. This allows you to blow these up with the same 12v air pump you use for other inflatables or with your own lungs. No needles or valves.
For now BABz are only available in Black and Gunmetal. But in the future more colors will be offered. It is also important to note the logo is only on one side. If you’d prefer the no logo look, you can simply flip them over.
These are the fenders you’ve been waiting for. We know you will love BABz!
