    Worth pimpin' the Musashi?

    Hi, guys! I'm plan to buy a 13" Musashi very soon, and I wonder if it's worth to upgrade the hoops and throw off? From what it seems those are the Musashi's downside. I think about getting die-cast hoops from Gibraltar and Dunnett/Trick throw off. Anyone who've done this? Thanks.
