Default Allstar Perf. Tube Bender

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/AAF-ALL10300/

Anybody have any experience with Allstar Performance tubing benders?

Seems pretty reasonable price wise. Too good to be true?

Yup, I have one..............had to modify the crap out of it to get the pipe in and out of the die easily. Mine now sits horizontal as well.

Looks like speedway has the same basic thing, but dies are a lot less expensive-

Both say they will bend .134 mild, but the Allstar claims .120 DOM and the speedway only claims .096 DOM... Wonder if Speedway is just being conservative or Allstar is overrating?

Specs on the allstar-

Speedway is probably being conservative I'd bet. Keeps people from bitching. That or theirs is a little lighter duty even though it looks similar.

Thanks for the replies. =)
