Default Pit Bull stands...anything better?

Getting ready to order a few Pit Bull stands from STG and was just wondering if any other stands are better? I think I'm going to go with the forward handle rear stand.

Good choice and great customer support. I love my forward handle unit.

I've got the Lockhart Phillips front and rear stands and I think they are top quality. The disclaimer is that I've never had another set so I really can't compare them to the pitbulls. They are made of aluminium so that are nice and light though.

I have a set of the original rear and triple tree front stands. I drove to huntsville and bought them in 1998. They're rock solid and still look great. That reminds me, I need to order a new pin to fit the RR.

I bought most of my pit-bulls used years ago and have had zero problems. I have friends who bought others then found shortcomings and now are switching to pit-bull

I think you will find Pitbull is the best. T-Rex stands deserve an honorable mention as well.

T-Rex is what I have. Pretty solid, dont know if they make a triple tree adapter for the S1000 yet, I bought them for my Gsxr a few years back.

I've got a couple T-Rex stands, and absolutely love my Woodcraft triple tree stand! They make a 15.5mm pin for use with the BMW.

T-Rex and Pits are solid. Two Brothers is another good choice but it costs two arms and a leg.

Wow, those are beautiful. I fear the Pit Bull price too and these are cheaper.
