Thank you 8)

Thats defo the same one - mine weighed a little lighter but that could be manufacturing tolerances and I had changed the bolts for Ti. The bolts on the link look identical to what I removed :D

I think the bars may be Titec Hellbent - The shape and length match up perfectly. The weight is pretty damn close :

* Claimed = 295g
* Another guy weighed his = 292g
* Mine = 293g

It will be interesting to see how the J&L's compare :D

You may well find that J&L are a factory that produces a number of peoples stuff - titec might be one of them.

Yes, looks like J&L stuff. I have some here, never had a problem with it.
I was talking to her a few years back, but never managed to work if she worked for the manufacturer of whether she bought from them.

No sorry - they are on the airborne and getting used !

I have a 100% mint Titec though, fresh bead blast with new TI bolts throughout - only reason I didn't mention it is because it is two bolt.

Let me know :D
