Default best 3 hole clamp/platform ??? yamaha , pearl ax-38 or ....?

hi!
I'm looking for the sturdiest clamp/platform to hang two floor toms. I don't care about brand, looks or weigth. all the pipes I'm going to use are 22mm (7/8) which is the standard , so any platform will also get the job done.
I did some reserch and I think that these onse are the best ones , but I'm open to any suggestion.

sorry I couldn't find an actual pic of the yamaha platform, but is like the one I've posted but without the pipe

I haven't tried the Pearl, but I own the Yamaha one. Although I don't use it for hanging giant toms, Yamaha makes excellent hardware and it's designed to do just that. It's double braced, has some weight to it, and is thus very sturdy.

I always always always recommend Yamaha hardware for pretty much everything; they don't cut corners.

Edit
Here's an image of mine, holding up the 12" and 14" toms and a cymbal arm.


And here it is on my new kit holding a 12" and two cymbals.

I had two of the 900 series Yamaha double tom stands which had three hole receivers before I switched to the Hexrack. I usually just had one tom and two cymbals per stand, one of which was a mounted 16" but I had occasionally mounted both my 14" and 16" off of one stand just for kicks. I think what makes the Yamaha double tom stand more rigid is the way their tripod is designed.



These things are sturdy as they come and don't tip over. They have a naturally low center of gravity. I have never seen this style of tripod from another manufacturer.

I'm really happy with my Pearl
Here it is holding 3 traveler toms
and in another use it is holding two heavy cast hoop toms and an clamp stand that is holding an 18 inch med weight crash/ride cymbal.

Yamaha, all the way ... loosen one wing nut .... insert 7/8 pipe (cymbal arm or tom holder) ... tight'n wing nut ... done.
The Pearl, loosen the wing nut, now you have the whole side assembly (possibly) flappin' in the breeze ... pain in the arse, 'cause Murphy's Law .... this will happen when you least want it to.
I've had both, Yamaha wins...

Don't forget this one. Although its been discontinued, you could easily make your own by just chopping off your tube.

Yamaha.
No muss, no fuss with this one. I'd put a memory lock under it to make sure the ft's don't go sliding down....
