Default Yamaha Rack

I'm between a Gibraltar Road Series and the Yamaha Hex (first generation). Here's a photo:

Any opinions?

I have two of those 1st generation Yamaha racks. They're great.

Yamaha, if you have the money; Gibraltar because its more compatible. However, Yamaha is pretty sweet.

I got a pretty good deal on the first gen. I liked the clamps that allow great micro positioning. However, trying to get my DW drums to play nice with the Yamaha clamps has been a challenge.....

Default Re: Yamaha Rack

Want to keep some cash in the pocket, yet have a bit more weight and/or want to build more elaborated racks? (i.e. other then standard 2 or 3 sided)
Gibraltar

Have money to spent and setlle for a 1 or 2 sided lightweight rack?
Yamaha

These are the main differences.

Gibraltar, more options, a lot cheaper, more separate/service parts and repair parts, availability 9/10 everywhere yet a bit heavier.

Yamaha, lightweight, sleeker and more coolness factor, yet hard to get, expensive compared to Gibraltar and less separate/service parts.
