Default Re: High End Hat Stands....Godsend or Gimmick?

My vote goes for...Gimmick.
Nor have I been Biscuit, in fact I'm still playing an old Export series stand from circa's now time for a change though and when I went to check them out I was totally amazed at the engineering that goes into some of the current high end models.......hence this thread.

This is one point that has seemed to come up on a few occasions. I think it pretty much helps explain the need for footboard angle adjustment. I'm still yet to see anyone explain why the red cam is better on a hat stand than the blue...or why a rolling glide or pulley system should render the old style direct pull obsolete.

Interesting stuff.

Thanks for chiming in men.
