Spool or standard rearstand?

Im going to order a pit-bull rearstand soon.
Any advice on whether I should just use the standard or order some spools and use the spooled side?

pros and cons?

Delrin spools. Help lessen the likeliness of the bobbin snapping off under slide.

Delrin spools FTW

Easier to use, the Delrin spools act as a swingarm slider too.

it looks like im going with delrin, seems to be the concensus. i was already looking at the pit-bull spools (which i why i needed the mm measurement, thanks Godsuki)

Id order from Patrick, but Im way the up here in CS. I was looking at kneedraggers.com, had good experiences with them in the past on some gear and their price seems to be the best retail online($123 for the stand). anyone know of anything better?

Pit Bull is what I use, can't go wrong with them. I've tried others, Pit Bull builds a very nice product. That's also a smokin' deal for a stand from them.

yep, pit-bull FTW. Ive been around MH long enough to have picked up that pit-bull is the way to go!!!

Yeah, $123 seems like a good deal.

Thanks for the input folks!

what's the shipping at that price?
I came across a website selling the pitbull rear stands for $135 shipped
I ended up picking up a used one off MH, in fact I think I saw a stand this week in the classifieds

Ive seen them come around the for sale section, but the timing seldom works out that i have the cash at the time one is up for sale. oh, and i live in college station. so that sucks.

Sometimes I wonder if those stands that have dont' need spools are better. I mean spools break off really easy in a crash and they are pain to get back on. Luckily Radar is my friend and is good at stuff like that otherwise I think I would reconsider using the spooless pitbull rear stand.

I got a stand from a company call T-Rex. They make a stand that will work on both spooled and none spooled. You just flip this bracket on the end. It has the same construction as Pit Bull, same look, good welds, but at half the price. Just an option if you can't decide.
