    I would second a vote for Clayton. I have trained with him several times. He is all of the above and young, excited and hungry.

    I would also look at the low end MEC loaders. I think they are a bit more sturdy than the Lees. You gotta make a decision on gauge. The problem with a 28 is that everything about them is expensive...

    John- I do feel strongly about it. If I have piles I will know it and sure don't want any visual aids. (Sorry, some low grade Texas attempt at humor that I couldn't resist. Hope you are doing well.)
