Look at Litespeeds
are great but Merlins are better.

Excel also has a pretty great deal on the Time VX if you can get one in your

Sorry, but after the melding of the two, Mer-speeds and Lite-lins are
really a wee bit different design of the same thing.

I have had had people tell me that the welds on the Merlins were way
better with the both brands sitting next to each other and obviously
the same...makes you wonder.
