I'm gonna check with Dave Bone on that one when I see him in a month haha.
I'll be doing ITAs with the L in February. Maybe I'll do a live stream and we'll see how it holds up. Dollar for dollar I have a lot of faith in it compared to any machine in the industry.
I've traveled with the L several times now. I can tell you that I can get it set up by myself in under 5 minutes. I don't think the clamp bases stand up to the star 5. But again you can upgrade to the original gravity clamp bases if you prefer.
