The purpose for this post is simply this: Most of us are looking for the best preceived quality x cost ratio. Normally, we call this the best "deal."
Most of the time, getting the best "deal" is the end-game. For instance - getting a set of JKS Quicker Disconnects off Ebay for $50 under the usual price from some guy that doesn't really know what he's selling. You got a "deal." So what if the disconnects are a little dirty or used, or may even not hold up for as long as they were supposed to. You still got a good deal and no one gets hurt in the long run.
However, when you're talking roll cages - you have to add a third factor....Safety. So as I contemplate spending between $600 and $1000 on a roll cage - I'm looking for the best perceived quality x cost x safety factor.
I've read a TON of posts about everyone's perceived quality - and about cost.....but what about the ultimate factor - Safety? I haven't seen many posts at all about that.
The saying: "the proof is in the pudding" holds true here. There has to be the BEST CHOICE for a roll cage once you factor in safety.
Let's see if we can figure it out........
