Rated 3 out of 5 by RodgerMaryland good purchase I wish I could say that these rollers are going to last you forever, but they don't. This is my second set of the rollers (clear or yellow) that I have had to put on my trailer. It had been four years since I replaced them, but when I put my boat in the water several of them came off the wheels. The yellow part of the rollers cracked and came off of the plastic part of the rollers which spins on the metal shaft. I think that weather is the main reason. My boat stays on the trailer year round, so I don't think that the sun was the issue. Just being in the elements with weather changes must really take it's toll on the rollers. I have have the same rollers only black in the past and do not recall having this problem. But because I did not like to scrub the black marks off the hull all the time I switched to the yellow/clear rollers. I hope that the new rollers which I just put on the trailer last longer than my first set. July 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by UncleJessie Better than some others I recently busted a roller by the same manufacturer as those sold under the Shipshape name. This was an original roller on a 1997 trailer. I found another roller by a different manufacturer at a local marina near where I was fishing and luckily purchased two. I say luckily because the first roller busted all to pieces under the weight of my boat. We were more careful with the second of these inferior rollers the next time and it held until we got home from our fishing trip. I replaced all the rollers on the front of my trailer with these new Shipshape rollers and I hope I can get another 20+ years out of them like I did the first set. I kept the original rollers on the back set because they were in better condition than the front set as there are a total of 16 rollers on the back and only 8 rollers on the front due to the contour of the hull December 1, 2010

A:168 pounds each
A:I have no idea as to the actual load capacity of each wheel but I have a VERY heavy Grady White and my rollers compress under so much weight. I had one roller bust on a recent fishing trip and it was over 20 years old. I replaced it with a new one from a different manufacturer (I was desperate for a new roller and it's all the local marina carried) and that new one immediately busted under the weight. I replaced all my front rollers with new ones from Bass Pro (shipshape)

A:no , but they are GREAT
A:I've had the black ones on my trailer for over 20 years. Recently one broke and I replaced it with a yellow one by a different manufacturer that I purchased in desperation from the local marina - the only one they had available. The yellow one busted immediately under the weight of my boat. Again, a different manufacturer but I replaced all my front rollers with the black rollers when I got back home from fishing.
