Taylor Made fenders have lifetime warranty against bursting or splitting. As you point out, they are expensive, but they are the last you'll ever pay for.
Actually that is what I have- the Big B I think they are called. Paid about $90 a piece. They do have life warranty- but read the fine print- does not cover "wear" damage- only burst or split. I got some old tires from my last tire change that are free. I will still use the Taylor- but think of letting the brunt of the fending be done by an old tire. Don't really care what it looks like, I'm tied to a "working" dock, just want to protect the boat.
