Has anyone flipped one of these yet? I folded a tempress over backwards a few times on my ocelot while snaps back upright, but kind of eery when youre bracing and your seat gives out. I put a new NRS high back on there and I must say I like the molded plastic which seems much better than the old metal. I liked the folding back of the tempress during a flip situation, but someone from NRS told me if my new seat breaks they'll give me a new one.

These seats from northern tool look good. Probably heavier and no drain hole but the bolt patterns look decent and they're 40 dollars less...both are made in the states.

Northern Tool seats are fine at less than half the coat.

I bought the Northern Tool seat and it is HEAVY. I ended up putting it on my riding lawn mower and buying one of the smaller NRS type seats. I found them (without the drain hole) locally in SLC for the same price as the Northern Tool seats.

If you don't mind the heavy weight, the Northern Tool seat is really nice... pretty cushy.

Without drain holes, won't you be sitting in a puddle all day long?
