Anyone heard of The New Shade Top for Jeep Wranglers

Hey guys. Iím pretty new to owning a Jeep and Iíve got a question. I've been looking for a good shade top and I found one made by SpiderWeb Shade Solutions. Anyone heard of this? Got any opinions? You can see the top at:

I don't care for the whole zip tie or bungie cord fastening thing. Running the bestop Safari top and much prefer that!

Thanks

The reason I am interested in the SpiderWeb ShadeTop is that it attaches to the Jeep without using the Drill Header Channel, I guess the bungie balls hold the top securely in place without the header. Do you know if Bestop or VDP have a mesh shade top that does NOT use the header?

x2 - the Bestop is the way to go. The header bar is not a big deal to install.

I have the SpiderWeb and it works fine. The best part is that i can put the top up while its still on ( Great for those sudden down pours). No problems with it yet.

Its looks like a good product to me. I'd buy one if I didn't already have a bikini top.

I have one also. Got a bikini top last yr and that worked well. I have a supertop so I now have two quick attach headrails. But the spiderweb top is great because it allows some light and mild windflow without the noise of the bikini top. And no flapping. Plus you can pull it down behind the front seat for a wind stop. The biggest benefit over another mesh top or bikini top is the fact it stays on no matter what top you need on at the time. It is easy to install and fits inside the rollbars. If you are tall it may be close to your head though! My spidertop has gotten 4-5 other jeep owners to stop me and let them look it over. They all were impressed and 2 have bought one since. The people that sell these are a small company and offer great service. Plus I like knowing I am supporting a small US company.

They are actually a vendor on this board. They sent me a top to try out and I finally got around to putting it on this weekend. I dig it. Fits nice and snug. Doesn't flap around like the other bikini's and safari's. Let me take my door surrounds off finally which were bugging me. And also let me ditch the windshield channel (which was good because it got flopped and would've fawked up that old channel). Here's a couple pics of it on my rig.

is this spiderweb top good for Unlimited ones? I'll only need it to cover the four seats so i'm thinking perhaps it's long enough?

I'd imagine it would work for you. You see how far down the cage I have it in the back. I have it fastened thru the stock seat belt mounting point location.
