Didn't know this, but it certainly validates my decision to go with the Equal-i-zer 1400/14000. Right now I have a Fastway E2 1000/10000 round bar setup (made by the same folks at Progress Manufacturing) and it's just not up to the task IMO.
Also, I can vouch for the improvement of the spring bar hangers. I bent the ones that came with my Fastway and ordered replacements designed for the Equal-i-zer and they are FAR superior.
OP, personally, I would go with the Equal-i-zer 1400/14000. I think it's about the best on the market for the money.
