I packs up in no more time than any other set. It has three butterfly latches on the mounted tom and 4 on the bass drum. Weight wise it is about the same as my 22" Legacy Classic when all nested. I use a Rockn Roller cart for moving my gear regardless of the size of the kit.That's a neat looking kit Rick. Do you notice any time savings in how long does it take to pack up and / or set up? Is the overall weight a contributing factor once it's all packed?
