Our billet bow eyes are the originals created almost 30 years ago at our shop in Fullerton. After we broke a few factory plastic grommets we had the idea to replace these cheesy plastic parts with billet aluminum ones so we designed and built them and sold them to Ed Miller's Performance Jet Ski. They quickly became the standard of the industry, carried and sold by every major aftermarket distributor and dealership, we've sold tens of thousands of these over the years. If you pay attention, you will notice that every other bow eye on the planet uses the same thread sizes, lengths, and bores...why, because everyone copied ours ! Imitation is the greatest compliment so we graciously thank everyone else for making us famous ! Each of our billet grommets is CNC machined using 6061 T6511 aluminum bar stock to precise tolerances, high quality threads, and smooth, rounded edges to prevent injuries. Each is anodized in your favorite colors to match your ski and give it a custom look and comes with a billet machined aluminum nut for a secure mount.
