Here's a quick study in economics.
You can buy front and rear stands from Company X for $150. You eventually realize that Pit Bull stands are better and pay $360 for the Pit Bull stands.
For whatever reason, you decide you don't need stands anymore (quit riding, bought a Harley, etc.). You sell your stands. You get a quick $250 for your Pit Bull stands. Meanwhile, no one wants your stands from Company X, and you get to deal with people on Craigslist offering to trade you a used muffler off their 96 civic.
Or you can just buy Pit Bulls right from the beginning.
In the end (assuming no failures with your Company X stands), which ones cost you more?
This is my choice on stands:
