rearsets poll

After the last thread I made on the subject, I'm kind of torn between two brands so I figured I'd make a poll:

Which brand do you have?

Which brand do you prefer?

Vortex is the most common brand at the track which means a needed replacement part is genarally easier to come by in a pinch.

+1. Voretx rearsets don't have all the bells & whistles of some (Sato, Gilles, etc) but they get the job done. Fully Adjustable (some models) very tough, pegs are super grippy and parts are easy to come by...

It's safe to argue the same for Woodcraft, no?

I love my woodcrafts; they aren't fancy but very very functional.

Woodcrafts aren't adjustable though. Also, woodcraft and vortex can't BOTH be the most used in the paddock....

the price reflects their lack of adjustability though.

Some Woodcraft are adjustable, but you don't really need to have adjustable rearsets anyway.

Plus, you are less likely to need spare parts for the Woodcraft, since they hold up WAY better than the Vortex.

Attack rearsets are my personal fav.

But Vortex and woodcraft have a better availability at the track.

I have both Vortex and Attack and like both. My Attack have much shorter foot pegs which are both good and bad(bad because I have old stiff knees that get to aching).

I have Vortex! I like them because they are adjustable for my tiny feet. One thing I do not like is they are tearing up the bottoms of my boots!

I've heard that about vortexs. Apparently replacement soles for my sidi boots are only $20 so thats a non-issue.
