Need a cat frame-

Heya friends,
I just took the plunge and bought a pair of 15' wave destroyer tubes. Hell yeah I'm stoked!!!!
I got on the madcatr list but I'm a year out. Anybody have a loaner frame, rental, inexpensive option to get me on the water? I'm in missoula.

PRE

Just get a PRE and you can have it in a few weeks. They aren't a madcattr but are a good frame.

PRE frames are great, and not that much heavier than madcatr.

I was torn between a Madcatr and PRE frame for my Legend but just couldn't wait a year. Love my PRE. Less expensive,lightweight,customized,etc...

Madcatr's are sweet but definitely don't overlook a PRE frame.

I am not sure the PRE frame is much lighter than a NRS frame. Better design perhaps, much more utility if your gear fits in it. But nowhere near as much as a welded aluminum frame.
