Default Help with a purchase

Hey, I'm just looking to get a cymbal stand now and I've narrowed it down to these two here and I just wanted some opinions on whether or not I should spend the extra 20ish bucks because of shipping costs.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Double-Braced-Bo...item3cb3eabebd

^ This one's a good price plus only $15 shipping, but there's no name on it so I'm not quite sure of the quality.

http://www.guitarcenter.com/Sound-Pe...93-i1413612.gc

^ I've seen this one posted before, but with shipping it's going to cost me about $60.

Maybe I'd be better off just going to a local store? Although in store they're usually around $70 so it might be better for me to choose online. I don't have the cymbal yet, but it's going to be an 18" China once I get the money for it.

Thanks.

I'd stay away from the eBay one, if for no other reason than the stand in the stock photo appears completely different from the ones in the other photos, which doesn't even appear to be a boom stand.

SP stands are not sexy or "big name" but I've heard that they're decent for the money. You would also have GC's return/refund policy behind you.

Thanks, that helps. Yeah the first one had me a bit worried, I'm going to check around a little more, but I'll likely end up with the Guitar Centre one.
