Question Arrow Exhaust vs D&D Exhaust

I was originally thinking about putting on a D&D slip on, but I've read that those can be annoyingly loud. A few people suggested Arrow, which I'm considering. Is Arrow good? Does it sound good? I listened to some sounds clips, but I couldn't hear a big difference between the exhausts. Let me know if I should go with Arrow, if not maybe Yoshi?

Arrow makes very good stuff.
As long as you're considering top of the line, you may as well throw Akrapovic and Arata in the mix. Exhaust is definitely one of the things that you get what you pay for.

IMO arrow is way better quality than D&D. . . i had a D&D on my R6 years ago and I'll never buy D&D again. I would rather rock stock exhaust than listen to the "tinny" obnoxious D&D pipe. Arrow will sound more "throaty" and have more of a "growl" to it.

Never heard an ARROW, and yes, my D&D is very loud, but I wouldn't say annoyingly.

several championship winning teams all over the world use arrow, NONE, use D&D.

D&D has moved away from being the loudest of the loud exhaust manufacturer. They now have some newly designed components that are fairly quiet. At least, that's what their website said the last time I looked in.

I hadn't heard the new sounding DandD but the old one is louder then the busa... the mufflers are small in diameter which means little packing and more original sound. On a 600 in screams, sorry more like whines

Arrow and Arata aren't even in the same league when it comes to craftmanship. Leo Vince is one of the best out there, along with Akrapovic. If you can score any of those, you'll have a great exhaust!
