From a quality standpoint and a training standpoint I would not trust any other brand than a BF International. I have owned other brands and they just do not seem as well built, in my opinion. BF International uses a very well built pylon clamp and a 2 cable system to the bow, which to me are 2 key things to creating the safety factor. We have had 3 good size guys (200lbs each) barefooting on one of these booms at the same time without issue....I would not want to try that with any other brand.

When my son is old enough, he will be learning on a Barefoot International boom.
