Thanks for all the comments. I'm now thinking of getting one of the commercial ones like the Days End pinchy finger one, on account of its small footprint: it looks small enough to set up next to the furnace in my basement, but the saw horse would be a nightmare. The Team Take'em looks good too, but out of stock. Lion Country's looks just like it though, maybe it will do:
The pro I train with uses this one
It is light weight (aluminum) ,doesnt eat fingers sits stable in the field and breaks down quick for travel or you can throw it in the back of the truck in between setups.
No it has 2 quick pins that detach the legs so its flat and 3 pieces in transport I would guess that abnormal abuse will damage it ,but it gets tossed in with the rest of the gear on a daily basis ....but you will need to make a PVC leg if you run over it with a truck and trailer
