The HighRise 8/8 with VerticalUpRiseTM* is the original and initial goal of the HighRise series of habitat.
We needed to get our PVC limbs up even higher than our 60" keeper model for the deeper water and steep break lines. It's super important to cover the vertical element, fully covering the entire water column. We achieved this with a simple to install large and tall, two piece artificial habitat unit, the 8/8 HR.
Balancing approx 100 square feet of surface area in each unit and made up of hundreds of flexible PVC vinyl limbs, these two piece units cannot fall over because of the Vertical UpRiseTM* built right into the trunk. Steep slopes, not a problem with the perfect balance of PVC, buoyancy and base weight. Total unit with both sections weighs approx 30 pounds.
What this means for the fish and the fisherman is a tall habitat unit shaped much like a tree, with fruit hanging low and high, standing vertical, indefinitely. The tree continues to improve with age, producing even more fruit....in this case, fish!
Each unit comes in a black PVC base standing over 56"" tall with a 52" top section. Both sections are bent to shape by hand and the top section gets attached to the bottom by screwing the PVC fittings together by hand, nothing else is needed.
Total square footage per unit averages 100 square feet, with a 95" diameter, standing almost 9' tall.
Install a line of habitat from shallow water out to these robust pillars of the secondary break line for optimum performance in key areas. Suggested for water 9 feet and over.
Colors will vary

Stands vertical on the steep drop just past our dock like it says.

This habitat holds fish constantly around our boathouse. I put 6 of them in about 15-18 feet of water and fish are around at all times. It stands up even on the steep slope off my frontage. Good product.

these tall habitats work perfect in our lake i put them in 12 feet of water and they hold fish alot
