There are several people on here running their Wraith products. Some of them seem cheaply made, then others seem to be of pretty good quality. Personally I'd spend another $10 and get something I know is good quality.

Yeah, I probably will get something different.

I just got a set of the non-piggy back version in the mail. I haven't even taken them out of the package yet, but so far, I've had good luck with TopCad stuff. I will let you know how these work out.

DO NOT BUY THOSE SHOCKS!!!!!!!!!!!! THE PIGGYBACK VERSION IS COMPLETE CRAP.!!
I got a pair of them 2 months ago. Although they look and feel fantastic, the threads on the piggyback portion are horrible. The piggyback portion goes in almost all the way before the threads even begin to catch. The diameter of the male portion is too small. What happens is the threads barely catch at the last section and will not hold. I sent them back (on my dime none the less) and they argued that they were fine. After 2 days they finally saw what was wrong and replace 1 pair of the shocks. They would not replace the other pair. They sent me back one new pair, and my old pair they said was fine. The new pair was worse. I tried to screw in the piggyback can and it wouldn't even grab. Just spun and spun while fully inserted. BOTH shocks in the new set did this. I sent all 4 back and am demanding my money back. I also had to pay shipping again.!!! NOT HAPPY. The credited my "account" 5 bucks for shipping on the 1st go around. They will probably credit me again $5 on shipping this time. Total shipping on my end is now at 18 dollars. So I am loosing money with these crappy shocks. I will not buy anything that has moving parts from them again. Just solid aluminum parts that don't have to move or have threads.
I decided to stop trying to save money on cheaply made crap and went with these. They are incredible.! Fully adjustable with the turn of a screw.
