Did Tama change the throw-off design? Mine has been rock solid for years.See my other post comparing an Acro and the Tama. I thought the Tama had better hardware, but they screwed the pooch with the throw off, it's not the same one that comes on other SLPs, and yes it's worse then a P85. The plastic tension adjustment screw loosen all the time.
The Tama SLP Dry Aluminum did sound better than the Acrolite to my ears though.
