Checked them out, and I like the design. Also noticed on the slidebone site
that Pfieffer makes a very similar one, with price in the same stratospheric
neighborhood... I guess you get what you pay for though. Time to start
saving my pennies. Of course, if I got one of them, any chance of ever
matching the rest of the section would be lost.
