Pit-Bull Purchases

I just wanted to share with you guys my recent experience with Pit-Bull. Even though they pretty much hold the monopoly on stands, there customer service is still phenomenal! I sent their customer service an email in regards to which pin I would need to purchase and within a day I received an in-depth response including part numbers, prices, and contact info in case I had any trouble placing my order. I ordered both a front and rear stand last night, and just received another email complete with tracking info and the stands are already on their way. This is the way business should be done. Out of my last 10 or so internet purchases, this is the only company that has held true to their word about shipping within 1-2 days. I'm still waiting for some shirts I ordered last month that were apparently on "backorder". Bottomline, Pit-Bull rocks and they get a big thumbs up from me. Just my

I ordered two sets of Pit-Bull stands from Pit-Bull. They truly are a great stand. The customer service to back it up too!

There has been a lot of issues in the recent past with other companies ripping off Pit Bull products and blatantly disregarding their patents.

+1 on Pitbull!! They make a great product and are a great group of folks.

Whatever you do, DO NOT purchase the cheaper stands that look just like the Pitbull stands. Please support companies like Pitbull that do so much to support us (track day folks and racers).
