If you don't mind me saying this, but that site has some pretty scary looking stuff on it.

Looks like a typical sliding ga, they can be quite harsh to the heavy-handed rider. They`re ok for a very light-handed rider though.

Bubba- they're usually twisted wire, single joint around here. I live in the same city as misskingraven, and those particular bits are very common in the low-level barrel circuit here.

Whiskey's good, thanks. And don't even think about buying that bit, you can do much better.
