Yes, I know some heavier stands have direct drives. So what is the point of the chain? Is it more robust? Who knows lol
According to the Ludwig wiki they never stopped making the Speed King (yes I know the wiki isn't an always credible source), but looking at their website, it looks like they are just trying to promote their new Atlas stuff.
