I've never understood why people pay what they do for "pit bull" stands.

I've always used cheap HF ones that are pretty badass. The new aluminum one I have kicks . Real light. Sturdy. Paid $40 for it brand new.

Bring it by then, I'll feed you some beers and we'll see if it's something I EVER need to spend money on.

It's kinda like, ya know, back in the day when you had to dial somebody's number instead of looking a contact up on your smartphone and pressing call. The same effort is put in (search contacts, scroll up or down or type the person you need), but the results are the same.
