If I may make one suggestion, if you get the chance at some stage, try it with "S" hoops. IMHO, they go together beautifully.
Thanks man. You're right, there may be a minor lug splay. Even in person, it's so slight that I'm still not sure! haha
How would you say the S hoop would act as opposed to the 2.3 triple flange?

Also, what brand is the throwoff? I have one exactly the same I got on Craigslist and I love it, but there's no marking. Kind of like a Trick and infinitely adjustable.
Thank you. I believe this shell was $230 shipped. Just contact Josh. Really good prices and build quality. He added the re-rings at no cost. I believe he has shells on ebay all the time too.
Concerning the throw-off, I believe it's just Ego Drum Supply
brand. It's a great throwoff, as you said, because it holds its tension in any position.
Edit: I found Josh's ebay store here.
It looks like the shells are cheaper than I thought. He also offers custom builds and layout/drilling. Great option for a DIY project.
