Trakker Mk2 armo gets thumps rom me. Had the Trident AS butit fell apart so replaced with MK2 Look in the right places the MK2 can easily be found for 300. Other then tha I can comment on te JRC STI had a old model it weighed a ton but handed anything I threw at i, the only problem is they weigh a ton.

i heard of a few leaking on the hooks i never had that problem with mine just gutted i got rid of it now.

bought a mk2 dillo for now and looking at the new trakker airflex for the summer months which is pretty similar to the razorback but with a peak on it ;)
