Default tjdieselperformance tubing bender?

Anyone used or have any experience with this or this style bender? I know it has limitations, but at $300 with a die, seams like a good deal.

that cast aluminum die scares me... I would get the one that used JD2 or pro tools dies if you are set on a bender like that, really you should just get a pro tools 105 or a JD2 bender and be done with it... at least that way you can get a 180+ degree die and bend shock hoops.

I wouldnt get it just because of the die.
