Are these still around? I thought they went out of business a few years ago.

Why the heavy duty links? What's wrong with the stock versions?

Eh...Ok I'm not a pro or something but could you give an idea who will ever notice any difference in this setup???
Perfection is not a point untill you feel the difference...

Well I am a pro.

I turn my stock Hirobo links a half turn all the time. Hmmm...

I don't know whats wrong with Hirobo links....
I just used JR balls and rocket city links when I built my EVO 90, so I can't make a comparison at all. My last few raptors I did the same. When you are on a good thing stick with it. They fit superb, and are half turn adjustable. Think I got mine from Heliproz.

I have been running the stock hirobo links for years and never had any issues with them. Unless it is just something you want to do there is no need for upgrading the links.

damn lol... you guys are haters.. on 2 of my machines it would be very nice to have a half a turn without f-ing with the hirobo links, is that so bad?

its something i just want to do.

edit: and hell, this isnt even about me, i was answering someone elses questions, go after them with torches and pitch forks.

Hey, You don't know Oat like I do...

but that's OK, I reserve the right to give him crap anytime I want, he flies X-cells ya know.

But I am still confused about this half turn thing, am I not supposed to be turning my Hirobo links half turns. Are they side selective like the old Miniature AC type?

yes, the hirobo logo is SUPPOSED to face away from the ball. im sure you can force it, or cut some of the link away but theyre side selective.

Yep, I know but...

I have never had a problem turning them half turn and reinstalling them. On the old MA ones, you almost couldn't force them on backwards. Probably best to get them right though.

ive tried and bet the link in doing so =/

thats the way i feel, use them the way they were intended im sure theres no reason to think they will cause any problems pushing them on anyways.

to each his own.
