I was lucky enough to string on a star 5, really great machine. I agree with what Drak says, It pulls very fast and the mounting system is very easy too. I have seen the Baiardo before, but never strung on one. I think the star 5 is nicer, and more clean. The baiardo has too many features that you really do not need, but that's just my opinion.
