  1. evening all

    has anyone purchased or used this racking system. From Pyrostation/ pyrogear

    just looking for possible buyer/ user reviews before i look at possibly purchasing some.

    looks a good A frame system, at a very nice price.

    Not used the racks from Imperial
    I’d happily buy racks from Phil, having used them on a few occasions.

    I have found the pyrogear racks great and Greg has videoed his destruction tests mine are just under a 12month old but they don't have a mark on them
     
  8. any links to these videos buddy. quite fancy seeing them in action when things go bad?

    More tubes per rack so less racks you’ll need to buy
     
  10. How much are opti racks 3”4”5”?

    Smoking Boots too. Pyroquip compatible.

    The Pyrogear racks are dirt cheap, but the lower tube count would quickly fill your van/trailer.
     
  12. But smaller racks take up less room?.
    One thing to look for and consider is the width of the lower beam, one for 'bounce' and two for protection of the bottom joint of fibreglass tube. I've seen 4" tubes suffer damage where only a portion of the tube sits on the rail.

    As I’m not currently an advertiser I won’t take the mickey but if you want info or prices on optirack please message me, here, Facebook or email is fine. I’m just as we speak completing the last of the pre November orders and have a website ready to populate with all info on including options.

    Im limiting orders so that I ensure delivery’s are made and supplied on time

    Thankyou for the recommendations everyone

    They look very much the same width - all that spacing between tubes

    The bottom beam looks almost identical yeah......


    I’ve had a 1” bar under my tubes for 8 years now and not a single failure due to it or damage if any sort

    Same - been firing off a bar base for years now. You do get bounce unless you deal with it. I use shock cord tied in a fig 8 round the tubes.
     
  17. Collected a few OptiRacks today and I’m looking forward to using them!:)

  19. Whilst I am an advocate and I have gone down the PyroQuip route, these frames from these pics stack/store much smaller than my racks. I struggle with sizes from 3" to 7" in both fanned and straight to get them to stack/store without wasted space. That being said, I cannot fault the PyroQuip system for quality and ease of use and each year I seek to add further and despite price differences between manufacturers I am not tempted to change.

    They stack much smaller because they've no tubes in them :)

    They'll take just the same space when they are full.
