I've had the same Pearl rack (with square tubing) since 1993, and it's never failed me and no components have ever slipped or rotated from where they're set. Over 875 shows with set-up and tear-down, and no problems.
I've had both rack & just stands through the years & I'm much happier with racks.
here is my old Pearl world series on a Pearl rack back in 1992
And my current set on a Gibraltar rack
A good rule of thumb is, use a rack where using the comparable amount of stands is heavier, and/or more complicated and time-consuming to set-up & tear down, and/or prohibitive because of the amount of stands that must touch the floor in a small space.
Bahaha that is ridiculous, I want to play it.
Is it an illusion or is your snare really as deep as your floor tom?
To OP: I've got a pearl icon rack, my kit is pretty small but It allows me to setup my cymbals more easily.
