Yeah I guess your right. But they are the same ones FrontierPlay carries for almost a 1/3 of the price. Plus the point of this thread is about the fittings cracking. These bad boys are less likely to crack than the aluminum ones I would think. Plus I bring dance floors, kegs, disco balls, and DJ equipment, not toooo worried about the little bit of added weight of iron over aluminum. I just need them for for a couple of lower cross bars in my cat.
I mean, did you read the crap I bring with me on trips?!?!?! They need to be strong to support the weight.
