barefoot booms??? BI or ECI

Im trying to figure out which barefoot boom to purchase. Barefoot International or ECI (Skylon)???
ECI boom has the clamp --- 2 folks that barefoot alot that i know very well too both say this one.
Barefoot international i hear is a great one too, just need tools to install and takes a little longer to put on too.

They both cost the same.

Thanks in advance for any input.

I have a BI and it works great! I have always thought of BI as being the preferred one. I'll let others chime in.....

Same here...takes 2 minutes or less to install...I like the BFI becuase it is solid and can take a beating it you have multiple people on the boom....or a few bigger guys.

I went with the ECI to be able to quickly remove the clamp/adjust boom height. I really like it....

Post a pic of what it looks like...we leave our clamp on and use the height adjuster.

I am interested to see how the ECI set up is like.

Since my two 94 buddies sounded off, I will too. I have a BI also, and love it. I leave the clamp on and just pin it, hook it and go!!

Bemman's. All day, every day.

Bemman's Custom Design in Winterhaven. Scarpa used them exclusively. Lightweight, 1 cable, never an issue. I've had 4 adults off mine with no issue.

Mine is going on 20 years old and I would buy again in a heartbeat without considering any other. Friends of mine say the same.
