While this is my first repair stand, I might not be the best person in the world to compare this to other stands. But after using this stand, I don't think I will ever want to make a switch to any other stands.
The clamp holds down real well and holds the bike very secure. Love the quick release system. The whole thing is very sturdy and it packs away to a compact size. Not heavy at all. Got it shipped to my work place, i just took it out of the box, put it in the tote bag and went home effortless.
