I'm normally not a big fan of DW hardware mostly because of it's price and bulkiness. I just bought a flat based cym stand and the cym holder is exceptional. Best idea I've ever seen for controlling cym swing. Now I don't have to find the right thickness of felt or the right length of plastic tube so I can tighten the nut and still have the amount of cym swing I desire. I do own a 6000 ultra lite stand pack and am pretty pleased with everything except the hi stand, it broke after a yr or so. I don't expect it perform like the heavy hardware but it does work as it should, except the hat of course. I'm very pleased with this new stand also.
